Toranomon Hills aims to become a new international hub and global business center where various businesses and global players gather, and disseminate new ideas and values.
The Toranomon area is located in the heart of Tokyo, close to Kasumigaseki, and has a high concentration of embassies and cultural facilities. Toranomon is also where the Company was founded, and we know the potential of this area better than anyone else. That is why Mori Building envisioned the future of "Global Business Center Toranomon Hills" and has developed the necessary functions to realize this vision.
Expanding and Evolving as a New International Hub and Global Business Center at Unprecedented Speed
Urban redevelopment in the Toranomon Hills area took off in 2014 with the opening of Toranomon Hills Mori Tower, the catalyst for the realization of a new international hub and global business center. Ensuing projects have enabled the area’s expansion and evolution to proceed at the unprecedented speed of nine years, supported by each project receiving official designation by the government as a National Strategic Special Zone.
Completion of the Toranomon Hills Business Tower in 2020 introduced "ARCH," an incubation center for business creation by major corporations, and "Toranomon Yokocho," a dining floor where 26 of the best restaurants in Tokyo have gathered. The offices are now occupied by a wide range of leading domestic and international companies, and "ARCH" has attracted 118 major corporations of representative industry in Japan.
Thereafter, Toranomon Hills Residential Tower was completed in 2022 to offer global players world-class residences for the enjoyment of true urban richness. Mori Building, taking full advantage of its expertise as a longtime leader in the luxury residential market, proudly introduced urban residential living on a level never experienced in Japan, and on an impressive scale totaling 547 units.
Toranomon Hills Station Tower, opened in October 2023, closely integrates the Tokyo Metro Hibiya Line's Toranomon Hills Station with the new tower's extensive offices, retail facilities, hotel and interactive communication facility. This pivotal addition to Toranomon Hills enables the area to further expand and evolve as a new international hub and global business center offering easy walking access to diverse urban functions sought by global players.
Toranomon Hills Serves as Catalyst for Massive Urban Renewal in Surrounding Area
The expansion and evolution of Toranomon Hills has served as a catalyst for urban renewal of unprecedented speed and scale in the area surrounding the complex. Starting with the opening of Toranomon Hills Mori Tower in 2014, Toranomon Hospital was rebuilt and Okura Prestige Tower was completed in 2019. When Toranomon Hills Business Tower opened in 2020, Tokyo Toranomon Global Square and Tokyo World Gate Kamiyacho Trust Tower also opened its doors in the same year.

Strengthened Transportation-node Functions of the Gateway Connecting Central Tokyo with the World
Toranomon Hills Mori Tower, completed in 2014 was made possible by designing a multilevel road system that allowed innovative structures to be built above these roads, including by integrating Loop Road No.2 and the skyscraper as an urban redevelopment project.

Initiatives for Safety, Environment and Culture
New Green Network Connected to Atagoyama
Toranomon Hills Mori Tower, completed in 2014, created some 6,000㎡ open spaces, including abundant greenery in its Oval Square rooftop garden and Step Garden terrace. The tower is also imbued with vegetation and flowing streams to help sustain biodiversity. The addition of so much greenery enabled the tower to acquire a top AAA ranking from the Japan Habitat Evaluation and Certification Program (JHEP) operated by the Ecosystem Conservation Society-Japan. Moreover, the building's green spaces are preferred spots for yoga and other community activities enjoyed by office workers and residents.
Furthermore, Toranomon Hills Business Tower’s completion in 2020 created lush Saio Park measuring some 1,200m², and Toranomon Hills Residential Tower, completed in 2022, connected greenery in the lower layers of their mutual exteriors. The result was a contiguous greenway linked to adjacent Atagoyama Mountain and Atago Green Hills, forming a new green network spanning an extended area.
Minimizing the Entire Area's Environmental Impact
Mori Building strives to realize eco-efficient urban developments by deploying highly efficient systems in compact cities that concentrate urban functions in high-rise structures, and using regional energy network throughout the entire community. The company's comprehensive, high-quality management methods include the goal of achieving urban decarbonization based on thorough energy-saving operations and the introduction of renewable energy, plus energy-security measures for times of disaster.
In Toranomon Hills, a high-efficiency energy center run by Toranomon Energy Network has been established to implement regional energy supply to the entire community. The first plant opened in the basement of Toranomon Hills Business Tower in 2020 followed by a second plant in the basement of Toranomon Hills Station Tower in 2023.
By integrating mixed-use buildings with different usage tendencies, such as offices, residences and hotels in the area, energy can be leveled and appropriately controlled for improved energy efficiency. In addition, the energy center is equipped with an AI-supported integrated Energy Management System (EMS) to forecast energy demands based on weather forecasts and past trends, which is expected to realize increasingly efficient energy use through optimization of in-house power-generation and heat-production systems.
Furthermore, in the event of a disaster, the system is designed to ensure supply capacity close to that of normal operations, allowing tenants to sustain their businesses as well as enabling to support disaster victims and stranded people.
Multiple Global Environmental Certifications Received
Toranomon Hills area received preliminary Platinum certification, the highest rank in the LEED (Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design) program's ND (Neighborhood Development) category.
