Tenjin 1-11 Block Development Project
New things cannot be born from completely uniform areas.
Ideas come from areas where nationalities, cultures, and generations are all mixed together like brackish waters.
In the future, the Tenjin 1-chome 11-bangai area
aims to become a place with the kind of diversity that feeds new ideas.
How you work and how you live your life.
On and off.
The world and your hometown.
Asia and Fukuoka.
Tourists and residents.
Formal and informal.
Shopping and business.
Tenjin intersection = Creative crossing.
This urban area doesn't stick to just one side, but instead pursues the multiple directions that people are wishing for, forming an intersection of creativity.
Places full of serendipity and diversity are always putting out new ideas, and this kind of place is sure to be a breeding ground for new creativity.
This will create new waves, contributing to an innovation revolution in the city of Fukuoka.
Tenjin currently has two faces: a business area along Meiji-dori Avenue and a shopping area along Watanabe-dori Avenue.
These two faces are connected at Tenjin 1-11 Block,
and this gives the area value as a creative urban intersection
where people on and off work intermingle.
This gives rise to unique and stimulating communication, which in turn leads to new activities and businesses.
Asia continues to become a more and more important region for the world as a whole.
Fukuoka has an advantage as the closest city for accessing other parts of Asia, and this advantage must be leveraged to its maximum potential.
The Tenjin 1-11 Block urban area has an Asian atmosphere to it, and is overflowing with life. It strives to be a friendly, stimulating, and open-minded space for everyone who visits.
Originally, "work" and "living" were not two separate things at all.
Both elements exist simultaneously in each person's life, and they are both important.
Fukuoka is known as a city where people live close to their workplaces, and using the unique notions that go along with that, the city is creating an urban area that accepts the form each person’s "work" and "living" take on within it.

In February 2015, Fukuoka City started a job- and space-creative prject named “Tenjin Big Bang,” implementing measures relevant to the National Strategic Special Zones together with its original policies. The urban infrastructure of the Tenjin area will greatly improve as the city advances practical approaches, such as easing height and floor-space regulations in restricted areas and developing its subway networks.
