Except for Building Number 1, the renewal project included the construction of new buildings (Academic Building 2, Academic Building 3, and Department of Radiological Technology Practice Building) and the renovation of existing buildings (Bldg. No. 2, Bldg. No. 3, Bldg. No. 5, Bldg. No. 7, Bldg. No. 8 A & B, and Bldg. No. 9). This 15-year project came to an end with the completion of a new research wing in 2020, providing academic and healthcare facilities with international standards in clinical medicine, research, and education.

Reconstructing the Façade of Juntendo Hospital

The 9th Director of Juntendo OGAWA Hideoki proposed the reconstruction of the former Juntendo Hospital facade from the Meiji period (1868?1912). After discussions with individuals from Japan and overseas a detailed plan led to the construction of a wing on the front of the new research building that was a replication of the former hospital facade. The facade symbolizes the history behind Juntendo, while also showcasing the progress and reforms that made the current state of the university possible.
