Toranomon Hills Station Tower is a multi-purpose 266-meter high tower with 49 floors above ground and 4 floors underground. By integrating the overall development with Toranomon Hills Station on the Tokyo Metro Hibiya Line, the tower will be complemented by a large and bustling station plaza and a pedestrian deck measuring 20 meters in width above Sakurada-dori Avenue (National Route 1), offering access to Toranomon Hills Mori Tower Oval Square. By strengthening and expanding the local multilevel transportation network on the ground, underground and the deck-level, the Station Tower will greatly enhance the Toranomon Hills as a transportation node and will enliven the entire area by significantly improving pedestrian flows.
The Station Tower will offer world-class office, as well as retail facilities integrated with the station plaza and a hotel making its debut in Tokyo. The tower‘s top-most level will be home to TOKYO NODE, an interactive communication facility consisting of halls, galleries, pool, restaurants, and other facilities fully capable of creating new values, ideas and business transcending domains, aimed at sharing creativity with the world.
The Toranomon Hills will be expanded to 7.5ha and total floor space of 800,000m2 with the opening of Toranomon Hills Station Tower in autumn, 2023. The area is steadily evolving as a mixed‐use complex integrated with urban infrastructures such as road and subway, with an impact comparable to that of Mori Building's epoch-making Roppongi Hills.
Open and Lively “Station Atrium” Created through Integrated Development of Station and Neighborhood
The Station Atrium (2,000m2) is a three-story atrium-style vaulted space combining coordinated and complementary urban and transportation functions.
The Station Atrium’s direct connections between the station plaza and nearby facilities for events and shopping keep the space bustling with a steady flow of people from morning till night.
20m-wide Large-scale Pedestrian T-Deck above Arterial Road
The 20m-wide large-scale pedestrian T-deck above Sakurada-dori Avenue (National Route 1) and connected to Toranomon Hills Mori Tower’s Oval Square. The elevated walkway, which passes through the Station Tower, is the main route for east-west pedestrian traffic, crossing districts and arterial road. It realizes safe urban spaces by separating pedestrians and vehicles in the area, and will function as a square linking people in Toranomon Hillls.
Interactive Communication Facility Connecting Tokyo with the World: TOKYO NODE
Toranomon Hills Station Tower’s top floors (45th to 49th floors, partly 8th) will be a home to TOKYO NODE, a 10,000m2 interactive communication facility.
Main hall and three galleries can be used individually or integrated as one contiguous venue. On the rooftop, sky garden, pool, and two restaurants curated by world-class chefs will open, including a grill restaurant supervised by Kei Kobayashi, the first Asian chef to earn three Michelin stars in Paris. The laboratory on the 8th floor, will further enhance the facility’s capacity as a highly functional and distinctive space for communication and knowledge-sharing, wholly unlike traditional conference and banquet facilities.
Furthermore, TOKYO NODE will serve as an information dissemination platform of for the entire Toranomon Hills area, allowing Toranomon Hills to evolve into a “communication hub” that attracts highly experienced and influential people from throughout the world for business creation and innovation to share globally.
New Office Space for Connecting People
Responding to Diverse Needs and New Workstyles
Office area located on 9th, 10th, 15-44th floors (total 32 floors), offers a total rental area measuring some 107,000 m2 and standard floors of about 3,400m2, including column-free plans with depths from core to window surface of about 18.5m, accommodate diverse workstyles and other needs of global companies.
In addition, eight "magnet zones" are equipped with atrium spaces and staircases, connecting the upper and lower floors to promote communication and collaboration among workers, and create more dynamic and creative workplaces.
Retail Facilities Support Global Players’ Work and Lives
A retail space measuring about 14,400m2 will occupy nine floors (B2-7th) with some 80 stores that support the work and lives of global players including office workers and residents.
The T‐Market (27 shops, approx. 3,000m2) will be full of life from morning till night (7am to 11pm) with restaurants, delis and stores. The restaurants will offer high-quality but reasonably priced menus, many curated by highly acclaimed chefs and pâtissiers, including some with Michelin or Bib Gourmand credentials.
Hotel Toranomon Hills: Tokyo's First Unbound Collection by Hyatt
The 1st floor and 11th to 14th floors will be home to the Hotel Toranomon Hills with 205 guest rooms including standard rooms measuring about 27m2 to 34m2. The hotel brand is “The Unbound Collection by Hyatt,” which will be making its debut in Tokyo as a part of “Independent Collection.”
It will serve as an “urban living room of Toranomon” welcoming a variety of guests with its restaurant, cafe and lounges open to the city.
All food and beverage experiences in the hotel‘s café and restaurant will be supervised by Sergio Herman,. Herman is a native of the Netherlands and longtime Michelin-starred chef and this will be his first foray into Japan.
