Facilities will include concierge service, guest rooms, kids room, DIY craft corner, barbecue deck, music studio, party room, cafe, community hall, and resident lounges on floors 47 and 53.
The tower will be built on the site of the former headquarters of Hiroshima University and is 1.8 kilometers south of the Peace Memorial. A 1930s building across the street from the tower is one of the city’s buildings that survived the 1945 atomic bomb.
