In a bustling district where youths congregate, the new Tokyu Plaza shopping complex will target “mature adults” when it reopens in autumn 2019 adjacent to Shibuya Station, where its landmark complex formerly stood.

Tokyu Land Corp., a real estate dealer and developer that also operates Tokyu Plaza malls in the Ginza and Harajuku districts, announced the plan on March 7.

“The Shibuya district is often considered as a town of young people, but we aim to provide facilities that cater to grown-ups in anticipation of an aging society,” said a Tokyu project member.

The retail outlets will take up the second to eighth floors and the 17th and 18th floors of a new 18-story building with a four-story basement that is under construction.

The 3,330-square-meter site, connected to the station, consists of the old complex premises and surrounding properties.

Tokyu said it will select brands and restaurant operators that will cater to “adults who have an urban and mature sensitivity.”

The first floor of the building will house a bus terminal where direct bus services will connect to airports in the hopes of attracting overseas visitors.

The former Tokyu Plaza Shibuya, which hosted numerous popular stores including a bookstore and restaurants, closed in 2015 after 49 years in operation.
