Concept and History

Model project for unifying and reconstructing city blocks around Shintora-dori Avenue

SHINTORA-DORI CORE is designed to contribute to Tokyo’s redevelopment policy for Shintora-dori Avenue. The policy calls for the creation of a more attractive Tokyo by solving challenges through flexible regulations that fit local circumstances, and also the sequential development and modernization of fragmented urban sites. SHINTORA-DORI CORE, as the first project to unify and reconstruct city blocks, will play a key role in establishing Shintora-dori Avenue as a new iconic street. (The project originally started as the redevelopment of the Shimbashi 4-chome area, where the Shimbashi No.29 Mori Building was completed in 1975.)

Space for cutting-edge business events and transmitting information

Startups and market newcomers from both Japan and overseas will avail themselves of incubation offices measuring 60–180m² on the third floor. In addition to small offices, a common lounge and common meeting rooms provide fertile ground for the cultivation of innovative ideas at SHINTORA-DORI CORE. There are retail facilities on the 1st and 2nd floor including THE CORE KITCHEN/SPACE, which directly faces Shintora-dori Avenue’s wide sidewalk. By helping to connect people, the space is expected to generate a new community spirit, contribute to the creation of new ideas in Shimbashi/Toranomon and catalyze cultural and economic activities.
