Tokyo continues to evolve, adding another feather to its cap with the full-scale opening of the Toranomon Hills Station Tower.
This landmark is more than just an office building; it aims to be the nerve center for business innovation and global networking in Japan’s capital city.
A Tower Like No Other
The Toranomon Hills Station Tower, managed by Mori Building Co., stands at a staggering height of 266 meters, featuring 49 floors above ground and 4 underground. It overtakes Roppongi Hills in terms of office supply area, boasting a total of 305,000 square meters.
The building offers 107,000 square meters of office space across 32 floors, setting a new standard for Tokyo’s commercial real estate market.
Seamlessly integrated into the urban landscape, the tower connects directly to a subway station and features 27 retail stores as part of its ‘T-Market’. It’s not just about work; it’s about lifestyle.
Adding to its allure, the ‘Hotel Toranomon Hills’ with its 205 rooms is slated to open in December.
A Hub for Global Businesses and Startups
Nicknamed ‘TOKYO NODE,’ the tower aims to be a hub for both global enterprises and innovative startups. This joint research base developed by Mori Building and 14 other companies focuses on content creation and distribution in Virtual Reality (VR) and Mixed Reality (MR).
On-site French restaurants and a rooftop garden with a swimming pool offer recreational opportunities, allowing for a fusion of cutting-edge technology and sophisticated dining.
A Brief History
Mori Building’s redevelopment initiative in Toranomon Hills dates back to 2009 when they were selected by Tokyo Metropolitan Government as the redevelopment partner.
It began with Mori Tower in 2014, followed by the Business Tower in 2020, and the Residential Tower in 2022. The Business Tower has already attracted multiple large enterprises and also hosts ‘CIC Tokyo,’ a hub where around 280 startups have clustered.
Grand Opening Ceremony
The opening ceremony, held on October 3rd, was attended by Yuriko Koike, the Governor of Tokyo, and Tetsuo Saito, the Minister of Land, Infrastructure, Transport, and Tourism, along with approximately 250 other guests.
Mori Building’s President Shinogo Tsuji stated, “We have condensed international-standard offices and startup bases, essentially everything a global player might need, into one compact urban space.”
The Toranomon Hills Station Tower is not just a building; it’s a microcosm of what Tokyo aims to offer — an amalgamation of modern technology, global business opportunities, and refined lifestyle choices.
It’s officially open, and the business world is keenly watching what it will bring to the table next.
