Azabudai Hills – Toranomon Azabudai Redevelopment Project
The Azabudai redevelopment project, "Azabudai Hills," which commenced construction on August 5, 2019, has been announced to open on November 24, 2023. Furthermore, some facilities are scheduled to open gradually after December 2023.
It will be the birth of “MODERN URBAN VILLAGE” named “Azabudai Hills”, a city surrounded by lush greenery like a “square” that connects people. By greening the entire site, “Azabudai Hills” aims to be a space where you can enjoy the healing power of nature while in central Tokyo, and to be a city which contributes to mitigating the urban heat-island phenomenon.
The nearest stations to Azabudai Hills are Kamiyacho Station on the Hibiya Line and Roppongi-itchome Station on the Namboku Line. The city, composed of seven buildings including three high-rise towers and a spacious plaza for people to relax, will house approximately 150 stores and numerous companies, including venture capitals.
