Project outcome

The site area is approximately 19,700 square metres. Located at the northern entrance to the site are the remnants of the old Shimbashi train station, which will be restored during the construction.

Lendlease's services include the set-up and management of a web-based document control system to streamline and centralize the exchange of project information, and enable all parties involved (including Government of Singapore Investment Corporation) in the project, in several countries, to keep track of progress.

On the same site is Panasonic Tokyo Shiodome Building, a 26-storey head office building, which shares common parking, a sunken garden and pedestrian walkways with the Shiodome City Center. Co-ordination to meet both buildings' needs added to the complexity of the project management work. Constrained by working space and the need to accelerate the overall project schedule to completion, the top-down method was employed during construction.
