Tokyo Harumi Athletes Village Plan

The Tokyo Metropolitan Government announced the model plan for the 2020 Summer Olympics Athletes’ Village in Harumi, Chuo-ku, Tokyo.

There are plans for 22 residential buildings ranging from 14 ~ 17 stories. After the games, the apartments will be sold off as either rental apartment or condominiums. Two 50-storey high-rise apartment towers will also be built after the games, along with a school and retail facilities. A total of 6,000 apartments will be supplied.

The Athletes’ Village will cover a 44 hectare site on the man-made island of Harumi in Tokyo Bay. Construction is scheduled to be completed in mid-2019.

Over the past five years, Chuo-ku has seen an average annual supply of 1,500 brand new apartments.
