Mori Building Co., Ltd.

Concept

The aims of the project are to complete the development of a distinctive and appealing mixed-use urban area including the Loop Road No. 2 (a trunk road from Shimbashi to Toranomon that will utilize the raised road system to form a framework for the city), and the areas surrounding it, alleviate traffic congestion in the heart of the city, and promote development alongside the road, including the waterfront so as to reorganize and enhance the city structure of Tokyo.
In Zone III we are moving ahead with procedures to change the urban planning by reducing the number of buildings from four to two. By doing this the project will contribute to improving land use and city functions in the Kan-2 area. For example, it will create large-scale open spaces.
The project will expand outdoor open spaces within the district from approximately 3,000m² to approximately 6,000m², strengthening their functions as superior outdoor spaces. New cultural and social interaction functions will be introduced, contributing to the promotion of international exchange and a tourism-based city. Moreover, on the north side of the district a new raised walkway will be built, creating a good space for pedestrians.
