Akasaka Twin Tower Redevelopment to be completed by 2024

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.

Details released for Akasaka Twin Tower Redevelopment Site

Details were released earlier this month on the Akasaka 2 Chome Project near Tameikesanno Station in Tokyo. The project has received special permission under the National Strategic Special Zones Law and town planning approval is expected in 2017 or 2018. Completion is tentatively scheduled for 2022 2024.

The 11,866 sqm site is owned by Mori Trust and currently used as a car park. It was previously home to the 18-story Akasaka Twin Tower Building which was built in 1983 and demolished in 2015.  The new office tower is likely to include an international hotel on the upper floors. Details on height and floor count have yet to be announced, although it could potentially be as tall as the Akasaka Tower Residence Top of the Hill apartment building located directly to the west of the site.
