The tentatively-named Tokyo office building Kanda Nishikicho 2-Chome Plan is projected to be 121 meters tall and rise 21 stories above ground. Developed by Sumitomo Realty & Development Co., Ltd. and designed by Nikken Sekkei LTD, the tower is making significant progress in its construction.

The construction site runs along the Tokyo Electric University Kanda Campus and the Kanda Police Street, as well as the ruins of the Kanda Police Station. While not directly linked to public transit, many lines are easily accessible by a short walk from the development site. The Toei Shinjuku Line Ogawamachi Station, the Tokyo Metro Marunouchi Line Awajicho Station, and the Tokyo Metro Chiyoda Line Shin-Ochanomizu Station are all a 3-minute walk away from the development. The Tokyo Metro Hanzomon Line Jimbocho Station is a short 5-minute walk away, while the Tokyo Metro Tozai Line Takebashi Station and the Tokyo Metro Chiyoda Line Otemachi Station are a 6-minute walk, and the Kanda Station and Ochanomizu Station are a short 10-minute walk from the Kanda Nishikicho 2-Chome Plan.

The first floor of the development is set to contain retail space, with the second floor projected to contain a multipurpose hall. The third floor will contain a for-rent meeting space, the fourth floor will contain a facility floor, and the remainder of the building will be dedicated to for-rent office space.

The office building design consists of a distinctive design featuring white framed windows, which will reduce approximately 70 percent of the total solar radiation within the building. There is projected to be 3,600 square meters of open space available for outdoor events within the project.

The project, which broke ground in 2017, is projected to be completed by 31 March 2020.
