The shuttering of the Daiei anchor store, in 2004, freed up space for another reconfiguration of the mall. Tokyo Bakery Street, a "Food Theme Park", was one of the facilities installed in the vacant store structure.

At the same time, an enclosed shopping center was built directly across the street from LALAPORT TOKYO-BAY. Originally known as VIVIT SQUARE, it opened in 2004 and encompassed 560,500 leasable square feet. Today, this complex is known as VIVIT MINAMI-FUNABASHI.

Some years later, the 1980s-vintage movie megaplex at LALAPORT TOKYO-BAY was relocated from the east to the west end of the mall. Occupying the third floor of the old Sogo department store, the state-of-the-art Toho Cinemas Funabashi contained 10 screens and opened for business in November 2013.
