2nd Roppongi Hills (Roppongi 5-chome Project) completion in 2030 – Roppongi will be an even more attractive town! -

Poste date: Friday, January 26, 2024

The outline of the plan for Tokyo’s largest redevelopment, “Roppongi 5-chome West District Redevelopment”, has finally been revealed. The plan is also commonly known as “2nd Roppongi Hills”, which covers a vast area adjacent to Roppongi Hills and Roppongi Intersection. In Minato Ward, where ARK Hills, Roppongi Hills, and Toranomon Hills were built, and and Azabudai Hills opened, this is another super-large-scale redevelopment project.

The project, which will be developed by Mori Building jointly with Sumitomo, started planning in March 2008. It is a super-large-scale plan on a site of approx. 80,000 square meters and a total floor area of approx. 1.08 million square meters, which is scheduled to begin in the year of 2025 and to complete in the year of 2030.

The building to be built in Bock A will be a skyscraper with a height of 327m and will be the 2nd tallest building in Japan after the “Torch Tower” (with 63 floors above ground and 4 floors below ground, abt.390m high), which is scheduled to be completed in 2027 in front of Tokyo Station. The area adjacent to the building, one of the largest event halls in the Roppongi area (approx. 2,000 m2) will be built, which can host international conferences.

The tower condominium to be built in Block B will be the tallest tower condominium in Japan. The apartment will be of an international standard, catering to the residential needs of foreign residents, with services such as a 24-hour bilingual concierge service, porter service, and a fitness gym.

Various energy-saving technologies will be introduced throughout the town blocks, to create an environmentally friendly town. The facilities in the town will also focus on strengthening disaster preparedness of the local community in the event of a disaster, such as the development of an open space with a 5,000 m2 that can be used as a temporary accommodation space for people who have difficulty returning home, disaster prevention stockpiles, and emergency wells to be used for flush toilet water.

Summary

It has been 20 years since the birth of Roppongi Hills, which greatly changed the former image of Roppongi only as a nightlife area. “2nd Roppongi Hills” is expected to transform Roppongi into an even more sophisticated international city while carefully protecting old things. We will update you with new information about the project as it becomes available, so please look forward to it.
