Mori Trust released additional details on their Akasaka 2 Chome Project earlier this month. The mixed-use office and hotel building will be approximately 210 meters tall with 43 floors and a total floor area of 220,000 sqm (2.3 million sq ft). This is twice the height of the neighboring House of Representatives Members Housing and almost 40 meters taller than Akasaka Tower Residence. It will be similar in height to the recently completed 205m tall Akasaka Intercity Air which is located across the street.
Construction is scheduled to start in
2019 2020, while the expected completion date has been pushed back two years to 2024.
The project will include an internationally-branded hotel, office space, retail and a 5,000 sqm public park. Power lines will be buried underground.
Some of the east-facing apartments in the neighboring 162m tall Akasaka Tower Residence condominium may have views and morning sunlight impacted by this new building.
