Shibuya Park-PFI

This is a project implemented by the Tokyo Metropolitan Government based on the public installation management system (Park-PFI)*1 under the Urban Park Act. Taking advantage of Yoyogi Park with its abundant greenery and its location adjacent to Shibuya and Harajuku, which have given birth to various trends, the project will provide the material values of relaxing greenery and a place for various activities. At the same time, by providing various stages where park visitors can influence and stimulate each other, we aim to create a park where visitors can all shine in their own way.

Through the Tokyu Group’s uniquely broad urban development know-how and coordination with local residents, we will provide new value in work, play and living around Shibuya Station and in the Greater Shibuya area and conduct park management with high sustainability.

*1The public installation management system (Park-PFI) is a system under the Urban Park Act that selects, through public offering, private operators to install park facilities (subject to public offering) that contribute to the improvement of convenience of users of restaurants and stores in urban parks and, utilizing the profits from the installed facilities, to undertake the integrated development of specific park facilities such as park roads and plazas in the vicinity.

Characteristics of the project

(1)An important location linking Shibuya and Harajuku

Located the center of Fire Street linking Shibuya and Harajuku, in the vicinity of Yoyogi Park, National Yoyogi Stadium, NHK Broadcasting Center and LINE CUBE SHIBUYA, the project site is situated in the heart of an area where diverse people from Japan and overseas gather. By utilizing the Park-PFI system around Shibuya Station and in the Greater Shibuya area, where the Tokyu Group has already conducted various urban development projects, we will promote coordination with facilities in the area and the community in order to create new social value combining the public nature of the park with a place where people can express themselves and interact with each other.

(2)Linking city and park

With the theme of “linking city and park,” this project organically links Yoyogi Park with Shibuya and Harajuku as a park where people can both relax amid greenery and feel the excitement of events, etc. In the greening plan too, we are promoting harmony between natural environment and city center through landscaping with an awareness of the continuity of greenery with Yoyogi Park.

As places for the expression of the urban culture of Shibuya and Harajuku, we will develop the Urban Sports Park where skateboards can be used and various plazas and terraces, such as Nigiwai Plaza in the center of the park for events, to create park spaces where each park visitor can shine in his or her own way.

(3)Health-oriented and environment-oriented

As one of the park functions, a “running station” will be set up to support running in Yoyogi Park. We will also support park visitors’ physical and mental health by holding fitness-oriented events using the plazas in the park and setting up a food court where visitors can enjoy various foods in the green environment of the park.
In addition to the planting plan and plaza design which enable visitors to enjoy the greenery, we will conduct environment-friendly development and operation, for instance through wall greening and rooftop gardens and the use of renewable energy sources.
