Forest Terrace Shoto is a luxury, low-rise apartment building located in the high-end residential neighbourhood of Kamiyamacho/Shoto, which is a short distance from the bustling Shibuya retail district. The 3,000 sqm block of land is shared by only 26 apartments, of which only 13 were sold to private buyers with the remaining 13 held by Mori Building as rental-only units. As a result it is rare to see them offered for sale.

This is a 3-Bedroom corner apartment on the 3rd floor. it is south, west and north facing and includes walk in closets in each bedroom, a full family bathroom, master bedroom ensuite with double-basin vanity, a separate guest powder room, laundry room, and two south-facing balconies.

The building is managed by Mori Building.

The Shibuya Station area, which is 1,100 meters away, is undergoing a major redevelopment which will include several high-rise offices, retail, hotel and residential buildings, and will further improve the status and convenience of the Shibuya area. Full completion of the project is expected by 2027.
