In this seminar, speakers will introduce how the Tokyo Station area, Japan’s oldest Western-style office district first developed at the turn of the 20th century transformed itself into one of the most economically and socially dynamic, environmentally sustainable, and resilient public places in Japan by focusing on the regulatory and institutional frameworks that were conducive to the success of the redevelopment. A mixed panel from the academia, private sector, government officials and WB staff will discuss how lessons learned from the project can be adapted to developing country contexts.
This session is part of a larger program. For more information see Knowledge Sharing Seminars on Transit-Oriented Development (TOD)
