- June 10: The efficient delivery of major rail projects
The future of urban development - A perspective of a railway operator: Shinagawa Development ProjectJR East is recreating the Shinagawa area, through a redevelopment project, including a new station. We are heading the project partnering with Tokyo metropolitan area authorities, expecting final approval by spring 2019. The Project area is 13ha, to include offices, residences, hotels, and commercial facilities to be completed by 2024 (Phase 1). The new station, to be completed in 2020, will be one of the busiest rail nodes in Tokyo with great competitive potential. We will thus develop the new center where companies and talent from around the world can meet and create new business and culture. Our goal for the project is to create a model of urban development centered on a rail station and realize our vision of Transit-Oriented Development.
