As the number of foreign researchers coming to work in Tsukuba continues to increase, the need for affordable housing has likewise increased. Short-term residents in particular face numerous obstacles in finding reasonable housing on the open market, and so the Science and Technology Agency has announced plans to build a large facility in Ninomiya just south of Minami Odori and east of Nishi Odori.
Plans call for 85 units for families and 115 units for singles. Construction will begin this year with completion scheduled for 2001. Short-term and medium-term people will have priority for the apartments, and this welcome addition is expected to significantly improve the housing options for foreign researchers coming to Tsukuba.
