1927 Kudanshita Bldg to be demolished

The 85-year old Kudanshita Building in Kandajinbocho, Chiyoda-ku, will soon be demolished once the last remaining occupant moves out.

Kudanshita Bldg is a multi-tenant building in Kandajinbocho, Chiyoda-ku. It’s original name was Imagawakouji Cooperative Building. Completed in 1927, the Kudanshita Building is one of Tokyo’s landmark buildings completed during the reconstruction following the 1923 Great Kanto Earthquake. The local shopkeepers whose premises were destroyed in the earthquake had pooled their savings together to construct this building. At the time they were each given an ownership share of the property.
