Details of Japan’s tallest 390-meter skyscraper announced On September 17, Tokyo, 15:47 p.m.

A 390-meter-high skyscraper is scheduled to open in front of JR Tokyo Station in fiscal 2027. Details of a large-scale redevelopment project under construction at the site were announced on May 17.
Mitsubishi Estate Co., Ltd., a major real estate company, is under major redevelopment on a 3.1-hectare site around Tokiwabashi Bridge on the north side of JR Tokyo Station.

On May 17, the company announced the details of its business and named the redevelopment area “TOKYO TORCH”, which aims to open in fiscal 2027.

The new building, which is 63 stories above ground about 390 meters high, will create a hotel, a large hall, and an observation facility about 350 meters high.

When completed, the 300-meter-high Abeno Harukas in Osaka City and the Mori Building in Minato Ward, Tokyo, will be the tallest building in Japan, exceeding the 330-meter-high building scheduled to be completed in 2023.

In addition, as the need for outdoor space is increasing with the spread of the new coronavirus, it is to expand the outdoor plaza and park than originally planned.

Keiichi Yoshida, president of Mitsubishi Estate, said, “There is a sense of stagnation in the world due to the influence of the new Coronavirus, but we would like to promote the creation of a one-of-a-can-see city that will brighten and cheer up Japan across generations and borders.”
