contributed by Nazar

Omotesando is a shopping complex in central Tokyo built in 2005, in a series of urban developments by Mori Building. It occupies a two hundred and fifty meter stretch of Omotesando, a shopping and (previously) residential road in Aoyama, sometimes termed Tokyo's Champs-Élysées. It was designed by Tadao Ando, and contains over 130 shops and 38 apartments. The construction of Omotesando Hills, built at a cost of $330 million, has been marked by controversy.The building replaced the Bauhaus-inspired Dojunkai Aoyama Apartments, which had been built in 1927 after the 1923 Kanto earthquake. The destruction of the apartments again raised questions about Japan's interest in preserving historic buildings. A small section of the old apartments is reconstructed in the South-East part of the new complex.
