Kengo Kuma-designed residential and retail project for Daikanyama

On May 17, real estate developer Tokyu Land announced that construction had officially started on a Kengo Kuma-designed mixed-use complex just by Daikanyama Station in central Tokyo.

The Daikanyamacho Project is a 10-story building that will include retail, co-working office space, and rental apartments. The 4,084 sqm site fronts onto one of the main boutique-lined streets in Daikanyama Station.  Completion is scheduled for late 2023.

This site was previously the Daikanyama Loveria mixed-use complex that was developed by Tokyu Land in 1997. It closed in March 2014 and was re-branded and re-opened in the following November as TENOHA Daikanyama, with Tokyu to operate it for a five year term. It also included Daikanyama Tokyu Apartments – an 8-story block of rental apartments built in 1993. Prior to that, the site was home to the Daikanyama Tokyu Apaato. Developed by Tokyu in 1955, this was the first luxury rental apartment building in Japan to cater to wealthy foreign tenants.
