The 145.6 billion Yen project will include a 19-storey hospital building and a 179m tall, 36-storey commercial building. The hospital building will be rebuilt from 2015 ~ 2018, with the office tower to be built between 2019 ~ 2022. The entire project is expected to be completed by 2024.
There are a number of major redevelopment projects in the Toranomon area, including the recently completed Toranomon Hills, the future redevelopment of Hotel Okura, the redevelopment of the Toranomon Pastoral Building (Toranomon 4 Chome Project) and the Akasaka 1 Chome Redevelopment.
