Government to sell off redeveloped building in Otemachi, Tokyo, worth 300 billion yen
東京・大手町の再開発ビル、政府が売却へ 3000億円規模
Otemachi Place is located less than a 10-minute walk from Tokyo Station and serves as the core function of the city center, with the likes of Sumitomo Corporation having its headquarters there. In the Meiji era, the Paper Money Office of the Ministry of Finance (now the National Printing Bureau) was located there, followed by the former Communications Museum and the former Tokyo International Post Office.
Otemachi Place is two high-rise office buildings built by NTT Urban Development and the Urban Renaissance Agency (UR) on the 19,900 square-meter former site that were completed in August 2018. This is said to be the first case of a sell-off of government-owned land after redevelopment, and it was much talked about as the largest ever sale of such land.
