Mitsui starts construction of 53-storey residential tower in Tsukishima

Mitsui Fudosan announced that they have started construction of the Tsukishima 1 Chome 3, 4, 5 Redevelopment Project on February 20, 2012. The large complex will include a 53-storey, 703 unit residential tower and a smaller 12-storey, 44 unit residence. The name of the condominium is “Capital Gate Place”.

Shimizu Corporation is in charge of construction and completion is scheduled for summer of 2015. The high-rise tower will be constructed using vibration-control (seishin) earthquake-resistant construction with dampers. There will also be backup generators that can supply necessary power for up to three days in the event of a power shortage.

The site is located next to Tsukishima Station and is less than 2 kilometers from Tokyo Station. The high-rise is on a 5700sqm site and the 12-storey residence is on a 600sqm site. The project is estimated to cost 37 billion Yen (468 million USD).

Mitsui Fudosan Residential and Nomura Real Estate will in charge of selling the apartments. Apartments range from 1 to 4 bedrooms, and facilities include guest suites, party room and a sky lounge. Sales are scheduled to begin at the end of April, 2013.

Although it has been conveniently left out of the computer drawing, there is a 32-storey apartment building called “I Mark Tower Tsukishima” directly behind this building. This will block the views of many north-facing apartments.

Across the street on the south-eastern side is a 38-storey apartment building called “Tsukishima Moon Island Tower” which has a mix of condo and government housing apartments.
