After holding deep discussions while retaining the principles of the predetermined guidelines and taking these opinions into consideration, the advisory committee put together the “2014 Guideline for the Redevelopment of the Otemachi-Marunouchi-Yurakucho District”. This guideline will serve as a good precedent that leads to ripple effects on the city planning efforts and economic activities of other districts so that city planning efforts can actually be put into effect.
PUBLIC PRIVATE PARTNERSHIP
Actual city planning through public and private partnerships
The “Regeneration of ‘Marunouchi'” was proposed by a review committee established within the City Planning Institute of Japan in March 1996. In order to utilize the Public Private Partnership (PPP) stated in the proposal, the Tokyo Metropolitan Government, Chiyoda Ward, the East Japan Railway Company, and the Council established in September 1996 the “Advisory Committee on Otemachi-Marunouchi-Yurakucho Area Development” as a platform for the public and private sectors to freely discuss the future of the district.
The advisory committee discussed how to reach the desired level of development in the district based on the “future”, “rules”, and “methods” to follow in order to make the future a reality.
The Otemachi-Marunouchi-Yurakucho district is located at the heart of Tokyo.
Also known as the “OMY district”, various global values are emerging here due to its gathering of leading domestic and foreign companies by virtue of its convenience of transportation, with Tokyo Station and many other stations within the area.
In order to enhance the appeal of the area, an organization that serves as a leader promoting the adoption of not only tangible elements, but also intangible elements such as exchange activities, urban tourism, and environmental action is important.
In cooperation with many other organizations, the Council works on appealing and sustainable development where all the aspects of “environment”, “economy”, “society”, and “culture” can be maintained in a balanced manner.
