This Thursday 26 April, Shibuya Hikarie will open in all of its glory.
Standing at the former site of Tokyu Bunka Kaikan, Shibuya Hikarie stands 182.5 meters with 34 floors above ground and 4 floors below, and will house about 200 tenants including Tokyo Theatre Orb which can seat 2,000 people. Other tenants include ShinQs, Osme Kitchen, and The Conran Shop Kitchen as well as a 2,000 sqm art hall for exhibitions and events.
At a cost of 100 billion yen to build, Shibuya Hikarie aims to change the demographic in Shibuya from mostly young consumers to women and men (mostly women) between their 20s and 40s.
In the future it is possible Shibuya will be known not only for its fashion trends and tribes but as well for its art and music.
