ARK Hills, which celebrated its twentieth birthday in 2006, was Japan's first large-scale private redevelopment project incorporating office and residential functions with a host of other facilities including a hotel and a concert hall. The concept of a mixed-use, compact city finally came to fruition in 1986, after seventeen years of labor, and was the forerunner of all subsequent Hills projects, which are based on the principles of bringing work and residences in closer proximity, promoting the arts, and fostering the coexistence of the city and nature. At the time of completion, many international financial institutions new to Japan located their offices in the office tower, Japan's first "intelligent" building. ARK Hills was soon recognized as Tokyo's premiere international finance center. Still today, the office tower enjoys a high occupancy rate and remains one of Tokyo's most prestigious addresses. Furthermore, the environment has benefited, as over the past two decades the avenues of cherry trees that form the symbol of ARK Hills, and the seven ARK Gardens have evolved into a vital urban ecosystem. In fact, ARK Hills was awarded the "National ENERGY GLOBE AWARD Japan" in 2006 for its contribution to the urban environment.
To meet the needs of the current era of internationalization and greater use of information technology we created the ARK Mori Building based on design concepts from the planning stage onwards that incorporate outstanding components as much as possible mainly in light of "safety", "comfort", "convenience", and "adaptability". In 2005 we carried out a major renovation of the building, with the major goals of "regeneration of interior design utilizing the special qualities of Ark Hills" and "pursuing office specifications of the same standard as those of Roppongi Hills Mori Tower."
The residences are business centers in the heart of the city in an environment rich in intellectual stimulation in which a fulfilling life can be enjoyed. They offer the ideal urban life for executives.
