40% of Tokyo’s existing apartments within 8km of Harumi

In October, Tokyo Kantei published a report focusing on the existing apartment stock that lies within an 8km radius of the man-made island of Harumi in Tokyo Bay.

According to the data, there were 10,195 existing apartment buildings containing 540,057 apartments within 8km of Harumi. 40.5% of Tokyo’s 23-ku apartment stock is located within this zone. Current estimates show another 10,000 apartments are expected to be supplied in the bayside area in the next few years. 

As the area is set to host a number of events and facilities for the 2020 Summer Olympics, development is expected to continue and the supply of new apartments could soar rapidly.
