Projects in Progress
Innovative multi-purpose development will create a city-within-a-city full of greenery The concept of the Toranomon-Azabudai Project is a “MODERN URBAN VILLAGE”; it aims to be a huge open space at the heart of Tokyo filled with lush greenery that will bring people closer together and build a new community. The project will seamlessly weave offices, residences, a hotel, an international school, retail shops, restaurants and cultural facilities into the fabric of everyday life, encompassing work, learning, recreation, interaction and relaxation. This visionary project also aims to create “a city within a city”, which will constitute the “Hills of the future” by utilizing past experiences in the Hills-series of redevelopments. After spending 30 years on discussing and planning this project, its construction finally began on August 5, 2019.
Toranomon Hills Area Project
Toranomon Hills Evolving as a Global Business Hub Over the coming years, Mori Building will develop three new mixed-use towers around the existing Toranomon Hills, which was opened in June 2014.Upon completion, the total area of the Toranomon Hills complex will reach about 7.5 ha, including the four Toranomon Hills towers, new transport station Toranomon Hills Station, roads and green space. The plans will transform the area into a more vibrant, globally accessible business hub that will entice individuals and enterprises from around the world to live, work and play in Toranomon.
Jakarta Office Tower Project (tentative name)
Mori Building’s First Premium-grade Project in Southeast Asia The Jakarta Office Tower Project, Mori Building’s first premium-grade project in Southeast Asia, is destined to become a new landmark in Jakarta. The tower is located ideally in the center of Jakarta’s Golden Triangle next to Semanggi Flyover on Sudirman Street, the main thoroughfare in the city’s central business district. Construction is being carried out jointly by Shimizu Corporation, Japan’s leading contractor, and Bangun Cipta Kontraktor, a locally based construction firm. The tower design was created by Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates (KPF), the noted New York-based architectural firm that also designed Roppongi Hills Mori Tower and Shanghai World Financial Center.
Artelligent City: a city that cultivates “open-minded” people With the Roppongi Hills project, Japan's largest ever urban redevelopment, we further revolutionized the concepts and the paradigms of city making. Our aim was the creation of a new Tokyo cultural center, where humanity, culture, interaction and vision could flourish. We achieved this goal on the upper floors of the Roppongi Hills Mori Tower with the Mori Arts Center, a cultural complex comprising an art museum, observation deck, private club and educational facilities. Offering a calendar full of events, Roppongi Hills has been visited annually by over 40 million people since its opening in 2003. And with every year, the city grows in stature and maturity, thereby multiplying its magnetic attraction.
24 hour multipurpose city complex: the starting point of the creation of cities by Mori Building 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.
Atago Green Hills
A new urban complex that effectively uses the existing landscape
Here the office and residence towers blend beautifully with the natural beauty, tradition and culture of their Mt. Atago site. Visually they function as the gate to Seishoji, the Buddhist temple centered between them. Designed by world-renowned architect Cesar Pelli, their exteriors evoke the shapes of lotus blossoms.
Forest Tower residents enjoy the spa with gym and swimming pool located on the top floor. Tower residences include furnished serviced apartments for short-term stays as well as long-term rental units.
Media Ship: An ark transmitting cultural information to create a new future The Dojunkai Aoyama Apartments that formerly stood on the site of Omotesando Hills were a symbol of the cultural lifestyle of the early Showa Era. The redevelopment was not easy. Together with the architect Tadao Ando, we considered a vision that respected the landscape of Omotesando, and harmony with the zelkova-lined Omotesando boulevard was not only maintained by the low-rise profile but also reinforced by extensive use of rooftop gardens. Omotesando Hills' six-story atrium, enclosed by a spiral ramp, echoes the slope of the boulevard outside, transforming the interior into a second Omotesando with its own array of shops. Omotesando Hills thus nurtures the memory of its historic forebearer as it grows into a landmark for a new generation.
ARK Hills Sengokuyama Mori Tower
Creating a Vertical Garden City, safe and comfortable ARK Hills Sengokuyama Mori Tower, completed in August 2012 as a new symbol of the ARK Hills area, has a 47-story high-rise building in the core, and 8-floor residential building in the south area. It was born as a driver of further development while inheriting the history and assets of this area rich in internationality and culture. It is a safe and secure neighborhood to live in that will extend into the future to the generation of our grandchildren.
"Forest City" A Model Urban Housing Project A large-scale residential project in Motoazabu, one of Tokyo's premier neighborhoods, Motoazabu Hills embodies our "Forest City" concept. The central tower rises like a giant tree, flanked by two lower towers. More than half the site is covered with greenery, and gardens planted on roofs and balconies reinforce the forest concept. This project is the quintessence of Mori Building's commitment to harmonizing city and nature. To add further to residents'comfort and enjoyment, facilities include the spa, rooftop garden, and Sky Lounge, plus bilingual concierge service available 24 hours a day. Nishimachi International School's kindergarten is also located within the Motoazabu Hills grounds.
New Dimensions in Fashion and Culture Conceived to fulfill the dual roles of offering retail space specializing in fashion and event space anchored by the Laforet Museum, Laforet Harajuku opened in 1978 and immediately became the focus of attention as a place to find leading brands, as an incubator for creators, artists and entrepreneurs, as a venue for trendsetting events and as an originator of very topical advertising. With the recent debut of Omotesando Hills, the Harajuku / Omotesando area has been given yet another fresh injection of vitality and remains Japan's premier home of fashion and style. The trendsetting influence of Laforet Harajuku, which is now commemorating four decades as one of the most recognizable landmarks of the area, also remains undimmed.
Entertainment Complex in the Odaiba Area VenusFort is a theme park-like enclosed mall which was planned based on the completely new concept of taking visitors to a time and place different to their own. We have recreated the beautiful streets of 17th and 18th century Europe in a building in modern Tokyo called Palette Town. Visitors to this attractive mall feel like they have been transported to a different time and different places such as the Italy and southern France of long ago. It is an enormous space with a total floor area of 73,594m² and so that visitors can enjoy the other-worldly atmosphere all day long we have introduced a variety of attractions. In addition to the streets in the style of medieval Europe, the ceiling represents the sky and changes throughout the day, there are changing decorations and events for each season of the year, and we constantly offer new services.
Shanghai World Financial Center
A new "vertical complex city" is born in Shanghai Our city creation knows no borders. In fast-growing Shanghai, the Shanghai World Financial Center - - a dynamic, mixed-use 101-story development that soars 492 meters into the sky was born. The Center is a business, culture and entertainment hub for Shanghai with the world's highest observation platform, a five-star hotel and commercial space. The uppermost portion of the building features a large rectangular opening to symbolize China's new window on the world.As a symbol of the Age of Asia, the Shanghai World Financial Center will grow further.
Mori Building’s Strategic Area
Mori Building’s strategic area is located in the center of Tokyo’s Minato City. The area has long had an international feel to it; many foreign-minded companies gravitate here, and it hosts a large number of foreign residents. Rich in international flavors, diversity and culture, this area has extremely high potential to become a “new international hub of Tokyo”.
The area beholds “ARK Hills Area” covered with greenery, where international residences, offices, ambassadors, and cultural facilities gather. “Roppongi Hills Area” is between Azabu/Hiroo’s high-quality residences, and retail zone such as Akasaka. Many ambassadors and foreign companies position here as well, and after the opening of Roppongi Hills, this area has been evolving as a “cultural heart” of Tokyo. “Toranomon Hills Area” continues to evolve as a “global business hub”, equipping global and comfortable business environment, and high-quality residence. When all the project within the area is completed, the area between Roppongi~Toranomon will be connected to be a “new international hub” with fresh vitality of culture, economy, and greenery. The magnetism of this city will powerfully tow Tokyo, and Japan as well.
