Leading urban landscape developer Mori Building Co Ltd announced Tuesday that it has completed construction of the Toranomon Hills Business Tower, part of the Toranomon 1-chome Type 1 City Redevelopment Project. The new building is scheduled to open in April.

The 36-story tower complex comprises some 96,000 square meters of large-scale office space as well as around 7,600 square meters of retail space for shops and restaurants. The Tower is directly connected to the new Toranomon Hills station on the Hibiya subway line, which will commence partial service in June of this year. It is also connected to the existing Ginza subway line Toranomon station via an underground pedestrian walkway.

A bus terminal will be located on the first floor for various bus lines, including the Bus Rapid Transit service which will connect the city center, waterfront areas, and airport limousine buses, connecting the Toranomon area directly to Haneda airport.

An incubation center called ARCH, with an area of around 3,800 square meters, will host various business ventures and aims to be a base for Japan's innovation ecosystem.

Mori Building is currently constructing Toranomon Hills Residential Tower, which is planned to be completed in January 2021, and Toranomon Hills Station Tower (tentative name), which is being co-developed with a new station on the Hibiya subway line, with completion planned for July 2023.
