Azabudai Hills: New Skyscraper Rivals Tokyo Tower
Newsfrom JapanGuide to Japan Architecture
Azabudai Hills is a complex of three skyscrapers that opened in Minato, Tokyo, on November 24. Its core is the Mori JP Tower, which has 64 stories reaching 330 meters high, nearly the same as Tokyo Tower’s 333 meters and topping Osaka’s Abeno Harukas, which comes in at 300 meters. That now makes it Japan’s tallest skyscraper.
The top 11 floors are divided into 91 condominium units designed with input from luxury hotel brand Aman Resorts. The announcement of sales prices for these units, topping out in the billions of yen, caused a considerable stir. Aman also manages the sister-brand hotel Janu Tokyo in the lower floors of the Residence A building.
The 34-year-old British School in Tokyo has also announced that it is moving from its Shibuya campus to the complex, adding to hopes that Azabudai Hills’s opening will encourage even more international flavor in this area, which was already home to a high concentration of international companies and embassies.
