Construction has officially started on the redevelopment of the former Akasaka Twin Tower site in central Tokyo. The project will see a 210-meter tall office/hotel/serviced apartment tower completed by August 2024.
The project is led by Mori Trust and NTT Urban Development and covers a 15,750 sqm site near Ark Hills and the US Embassy. The 43-story mixed-use office tower will have a total floor area of 220,000 sqm (2.3 million sq.ft).
Construction was initially scheduled to start in 2019 but was delayed.
The former 18-story Akasaka Twin Tower building was developed by Mori Trust and completed in 1983. It was demolished in 2015 due to its age.
