Shibuya Station Building (East Tower) | 228m

The work on the main tower has already started, but it's mainly underground work for now therefor there's not much to see. Work on the new Ginza Line station is much more visible.

8. Right now most of the visible work above ground on the tower site is that they are digging out dirt.

Shibuya Station South Block Redevelopment | 180m

Officially the work will start this August, but there's already a whole lot foundation work going on right now.

Dogenzaka 1-chome Station Front Redevelopment | 110m

Demolition work hasn't fully started yet, they are probably still stripping the former department store from the inside first.

There's tons of work going on in the subway mezzanines underground too now. The south end of the Fukutoshin/Toyoko line station has had temporary walls up since its opening 5 years ago, but in the finished renders, there's supposed to be a big underground plaza down there, possibly replacing the large pedestrian overpasses at that intersection.

That would seem to allow a conflict of movement between JR-bound and Tokyu-bound passengers.

Also, what is the purpose of that blank space to the left of the Tokyu tracks?

JR/Tokyu changing passengers will go thru a new unbuilt passage using the B2 levels of the new towers where the current Exit 9 is now off the Hikarie gates.

Blank spot is for air to naturally exchange into the B5 level naturally since that vertical blank space goes all the way up to street level.

Sorry, I don't think I made myself clear. A person on the left side of the street (in the image) is trying to get to the right side of the street to get to JR. It would appear that they would have to cross the busy street or deal with the huge number of people trying to get to and from the Tokyu platforms.

Huge campaign website for the entire redevelopment has been renewed.

http://shibuyaplusfun.com

And at the same time, the project diorama is on display on the 11th floor of Hikarie in the Sky Lobby.

Tokyu released new renders for the main tower.

The biggest difference is the roof, it will have a public open rooftop panorama deck.

Looks amazing the roof and the street rejuvenation.
Will the green train carriage and the dog remain on street level?

I would imagine that the corner of the observation deck people will be constantly pressed up against the glass trying to view the Shibuya crossing below.

Has to be one of the most complex construction projects in the world, building all that and keeping everything running smoothly in the busiest place in the world. Only in Japan!

Groundbreaking for JR Shibuya Station Redevelopments

This took place last week on 7 September I believe. I was able to talk to a few Tokyu and JR contractors, planners and archietects on this development a few days later, and they say we are going to start to see some serious building happening after November. Up until now, most of the construction has been taking place under the east side of the development to move the Shibuya River canal into a new culvert along with creating a new water retention facility. Since that is done, we will now see more above ground works start in earnest.*
  1. As far as JR is concerned, They will first need to make the Yamanote line inner loop platform (Shinagawa-Tokyo bound) into an island platform for the outer loop trains to stop there.[/*]
  2. Next they can then hack away at the then disused platform on that side and add another track somehow, creating a new island platform out of the space. At that point the Yamanote Line will move to that platform temporarily.[/*]
  3. The island platform first created then can be shifted more and become the new Saikyo Line platform, and the Yamanote platform will be shifted over more and become the new Yamanote Platform... side by side in the final configuration.[/*]
This will have to happen while the station is in operation, still catering to *the same amount of people that have to use the station everyday (including yours truly )

JR will be using their existing property lines and not encroach upon Tokyu's property line--which if you see the site in person, is impossible now since there's a building foundation going in where the old Tokyu Toyoko station used to be. How they manage that is beyond my comprehension but I can't wait to document the process.

The goal for completing the JR platform rennovation is the end of 2019/beginning of 2020, in time for the Olympics. Again, my mouth dropped, but since I have a booklet from Tokyu along with a press release from JR East, this is gospel. The completely renovated station will be done 7 years later in 2027, but the platform structures will be there in time for the Olympics.

Here's a news report with coverage of the ground breaking as well as a a good graphic overview from TokyoMX TV the other night...

A new render for the Sakuragaoka Entrance redevlopment has been published by the Metropolitain government. The designs of the tower have changed a bit, but there was no scale reduction.


http://www.metro.tokyo.jp/INET/OSHIR...9/20p9e200.htm

The start of construction date has also been revealed, it's December 2017.
