Outline of "Toranomon Hills Station Tower"

"Toranomon Hills Station Tower" is a multi-purpose 266-meter high tower with 49 floors above ground, integrated the overall development with "Toranomon Hills" Station on the Tokyo Metro Hibiya Line. The project consisted of the main "Toranomon Hills Station Tower," "Glass Rock" and "Toranomon Hills Edomizaka Terrace."
The tower includes world-class office, retail facilities integrated with the station plaza and a high-class hotel making its debut in Tokyo, and its top-most level is home to "TOKYO NODE," an interactive communication facility fully capable of creating new values, experiences and information, aimed at being a stage for dispatching information. By expanding the local multilevel transportation network on the ground, underground and the deck-level, the Station Tower will greatly enhance the "Toranomon Hills" as a transportation node and will enliven the entire area by significantly improving pedestrian flows.
Following the completion of "Mori Tower" (2014), "Business Tower" (2020) and "Residential Tower" (2022), the "Toranomon Hills" has been expanded to 7.5ha and total floor space of 800,000m2 with "Toranomon Hills Station Tower." The area is steadily evolving as a mixed-use complex integrated with urban infrastructures such as road and subway, becoming a new international hub and global business center with a scale and an impact comparable to that of epoch-making "Roppongi Hills."
