Living in Kachidoki, Harumi - Tokyo Bayside
The Kachidoki Harumi are covers Tokyo Bay's waterfront locations on the east side of Chuo-ku. The reclaimed areas were constructed from the middle of Meiji era to the Showa era.
This area is stretches across the Kachidoki Bridge, going along Harumi-dori Street in the direction of Tokyo Bay from Ginza and Tsukiji.
Since the opening of “Kachidoki” Station on the Toei Oedo Line in 2000, tower apartments and commercial facilities have been constructed one after another adding to the area’s convenience of living. At the center of the area stands a 52 story tower apartment building named Kachidoki View Tower that is directly connected to Kachidoki Station. Within the building is a convenience store, supermarket, children’s center, and nursery school. Although the area is rapidly developing, its traditional townscape and atmosphere maintained by attractions such as houseboat (Yakatabune) rides on the Sumida River, is part of the area’s charm.
Harumi is an insular area spreading out to the south of the Kachidoki and Tsukishima areas. In 1998 “Harumi Island Triton Square”–a high-rise office, commercial, and residential complex–was built in 1-chome, Harumi. Since then, various high-rise buildings and large tower apartments were build one after another rapidly improving the area’s living environment. Currently, a development project named “HARUMI FLAG” is in progress on a piece of 13 hectare land in the western part of 5-chome, Harumi. This land will be used as the athlete’s village for the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games.
After its temporary use as the location for the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games’ athlete’s village, continuous development projects are planned for the area. By 2024 its is planned that there will be a new city block with 24 buildings–for condos and rental apartments with a total of 5632 units–as well as some commercial facilities. The area is attracting attention and creating an increase in expectations for further development in the future.
