The location is superb: one minute from Kamiyacho Station on the Hibiya subway line in Toranomon, where multinational corporations and embassies cluster. To create Holland Hills, Mori Building collaborated with the Tokyo Metropolitan Government’s Bureau of Waterworks to make effective use of unused space on the Shiba Waterworks site. This high-rise office, retail, and residential structure harmonizes with the handsome gardens of the Dutch Embassy next door, while creating additional open space. The Holland Hills Mori Tower RoP offers distinctive rental residences from MORI LIVING, with a variety of floor plans to suit urban dwellers’ lifestyles. The roof garden, 100 meters above ground, offers views of Tokyo Tower, Roppongi Hills, and other Tokyo landmarks.

To create Holland Hills, Mori Building collaborated with the Tokyo Metropolitan Government's Bureau of Waterworks to apply the Design System for Conurbated Buildings* to make effective use of unused space on the Shiba Waterworks site, and succeeded in constructing a building with a standard flooor-space ratio of 1.5 times the average (approximately 870%). This has been a model case of effective utilization of the unused capacity of existing public facilities, which has contributed to the finances of the local authority.
* Design System for Conurbated Buildings
This is a new system introduced with the amendment to the Building Standards Law in 1998. It is a system allowing for a special exception that recognizes the transfer of floor-space ratios to conurbated land and greatly relaxes regulations on floor-space ratios, thereby applying the same set of regulations to multiple buildings based on an adjustment of their design with neighboring buildings. By treating multiple buildings (on conurbated land) as a single unit, it contributes to ensuring a better environment and more effective use of land than was the case under building regulations based on sites or ownership rights, which often resulted in a confusion of narrow buildings or disordered construction.
In recent years the green hills of the Dutch embassy on the east side of Holland Hills Mori Tower have become hidden by the buildings lining Sakurada-dori and have been invisible to passers-by. This project, carried out with the cooperation of our co-contractor the Metropolitan Government's Bureau of Waterworks and the Dutch embassy, makes the existing buildings more concentrated and taller and places new green areas in the resulting open space (the terrace on top of the low-rise building and the plaza space around the low-rise building), thus creating a new natural panorama which is adjacent to the greenery around the Dutch embassy. In February next year when the low-rise building, Holland Hills Mori Tower Plaza, is completed, the green hills of the Dutch embassy will be visible from Sakurada-dori once again, and the terrace garden adjacent to that greenery will offer a place for people visiting Holland Hills to relax.
