In November 2019, the 50th anniversary year of the opening of Ikebukuro PARCO in 1969, Shibuya PARCO was reborn as a wholly unique next-generation commercial facility that communicates to the world, embodying the evolution of our three social roles, PARCO’s point of origin, which are “Incubation,” “Urban Revitalization” and “Trends Communication.” Shibuya PARCO is an environment- and community-friendly commercial space, maintaining walkability for pedestrians, creating appealing outdoor spaces with a rooftop park and 3D street, and deploying an energy management system and state-of-the-art equipment. Beyond the bounds of typical commercial facilities, Shibuya PARCO relates and creates with designers, creators and other producers, conducting new initiatives to generate new inspiration, offering the value of joyful experience, and communicating information with a global reach.

In 2020, the PARCO Group is entering a new stage for its next 50 years. In November 2020, Shinsaibashi PARCO is scheduled to open, which will maximize Group synergies, and we plan to further accelerate the evolution of PARCO’s point of origin. Under a new corporate system, we will further evolve by fulfilling the social roles of the PARCO Group with a focus on these next 50 years. Expect the best of the PARCO Group as we work to grow sustainably.
