TOKYO | Ark Hills Sengokuyama Mori Tower | 207m | 48 fl | Com

Toranomon-Roppongi Area Redevelopment Project (虎ノ門・六本木地区再開発)
http://www.mori.co.jp/company/press/...000000970.html

Toranomon-Roppongi Area

Vertical Garden City

Planning is currently underway for the Vertical Garden City redevelopment of a large slice of central Tokyo close to ARK Hills. Working in concert with local residents, Mori Building will transform these areas into safer, more comfortable and greener places to live.

Concepts

This redevelopment project covers approximately 2.0 hectares of land located extremely close to Kamiyacho Station on the Tokyo Subway Hibiya Line and Roppongi 1-chome Station on the Namboku Line.

Many embassies and hotels are located nearby, making it an area with a strong international flavor, and it is being developed through category 1 urban redevelopment projects such as ARK Hills, Izumi Garden, etc. Moreover the "Loop Road No. 2, vicinity of Shimbashi, Akasaka, and Roppongi" area, which includes the site of this development, has been designated an urgent urban renewal area.

Based on the concept of "a life surrounded by nature in the heart of the city," we are aiming to build an appealing urban area that is very cosmopolitan and has abundant culture. It will combine residential, retail, and business functions to a high standard. The development will be in harmony with other developments in the vicinity, ensure reasonable and sound land use, improve disaster prevention capability, and advance the development of the city infrastructure.

Development of public facilities is to include widening of the ward road on the western side of the site by 12 meters from the opposite bank, and the building of two new ward roads, 9 meters and 6 meters wide, around the perimeter of the site. We will also develop public spaces inside the site itself, an approximately 3,000m2 space on the west side and an approximately 1,000m2 space on the south side, and develop new pedestrian walkways and green areas. There is a height difference of approximately 10 meters between the existing residential areas on the west side and east side of the development site, but this project will help to improve the convenience of the area by installing escalators and elevators in the walkways.

Generally I like the design of the buildings in Roppongi area. This is really Tokyo! It is considered to be the most beautiful and wealthy area.

Still not much to see from the construction, but they put a picture of the design on the big fence at one of the gates.





Right next to this site they also started demolition work on the site for a 118m high residential tower that will be completed in 2011.

http://img515.imageshack.us/img515/1089/ca5eab9d.jpg

I've been to tokyo a few days ago. I remember I was standing in front of a 7/11 at the junction of sakurada dori and gaien higashi dori when walking from tokyo tower to roppongi hills and I saw this strange looking building hidden behind other buildings. unfortunately I didn't have closer look at it ..

The first few floors of the tower look like a residential part. Is the whole base together with the small building next to it a new living space for the people, who lived there before? What happened to them?

The design of the building seems to be very similar to the already existing Atago Towers.

They moved.

Home/land owners have a very strong position in Japan and it usually takes years before areas that are up for redevelopment is completely bought by the redevelopment company.

Update:

Hi there! Thanks for the info. I read once a part of a book about the Century Tower designed by Norman Foster. There also was a short chapter 'Neighbourhood Negotiations' considering a little bit about civic behaviour in Japan. It's quite fascinating how they organize several meetings with the residents to solve problems.
