TOKYO | Roppongi 3 Chome East District Redevelopment | 230m | 40 fl | 115m | 27 fl | T/O

Right next to the iconic 216m high Izumi Garden Tower in Roppongi a new tower will rise that can be considered as a younger but taller twin. The new office tower will be 250m tall and should be approved later this year for a start of construction in 2012. A 120m high residential tower will also be part of the redevelopment.

For this project the Japan IBM Head Office Building (87.4m, 1991), the Roppongi Prince Hotel and other smaller buildings will be demolished.

Someone used Google Sketch-up and Google Earth to give us an idea on how it's going to look in the skyline together with some more new projects that are planned or U/C right now.



All the new developments in the area.

The design has also changed a bit after the height reduction, this is the latest render.



It looks a bit different then the original renders, from this side it's also not a Izumi Garden Tower clone anymore.


And to finish of the news, the preparation for the demolition of the old buildings have started.

Earlier the news had come out that the height was reduced from 250m to 241m.

The tower is cool but I'm more blown away by those images from Google Earth from Tokyo in 3D. Even the smallest buildings seem to have quite high-res textures.

* starts up google earth*

It's indeed quite cool, but it doesn't have all the new towers.

IBM already sold this building to Sumitomo Real Estate in 2005 and moved the activities here some years later to the IBM Hakozaki Building in Nihonbashi-Hakozaki-cho. I don't think a return to a new building in Roppongi was part of the deal.

Since I'm sure we will get a press release about a groundbreaking ceremony when the construction will start I will not change the status to U/C. But now the demolition is almost finished, the bigger preparation work has started.

I see that they are digging out some of the old foundations on the part of the site that was last demolished. And we also see the start of the construction of a retaining wall at the edge of the building site.

All this means that we don't have to wait too long anymore for the actual start of construction.

The preparation and last demolition work still continues.

Their making some deep and strong Retaining walls. Just look at the size of these I-beams and how close they are put together. Together with the concrete these are going to be some solid walls protecting the site when they will digging out the 5 underground floors.

A new designed has popped up in an English language pdf about their projects.
http://www.sumitomo-rd.co.jp/english...ement_plan.pdf


It has not appeared yet on any Japanese language document, but the most recent announcements about this project were without any render. So maybe they wait for the Japanese presentation when the construction officially starts, right now it's still prep work.

anyway, here's the render of the new design.

Construction has started!


And as expected Sumitomo has released the new design in the press release about the start of construction.
http://www.sumitomo-rd.co.jp/news/fi...9/Roppongi.pdf


It's a different render the one that was in





Still no render from the residential tower though.


Some other images and diagrams from the press release.
