PROJECT

Otemachi Financial City Grand Cube

Many of Japan’s leading corporations and organizations have their offices in the Otemachi district of Tokyo. Since 2003, a redevelopment project is enhancing the district’s competitiveness as an international business center by replacing aging office buildings. Organized under the leadership of Mitsubishi Estate, the project is proceeding through stepwise redevelopment of an approximately 17.4 ha area, allowing landowners and tenant companies to continue doing business in the area during redevelopment. The third phase of the project, completed in 2016, connects the first and second phases. It includes two buildings: the luxury hotel Hoshinoya Tokyo and Grand Cube, a high-rise tower with offices on its upper floors and retail on its lower floors. These buildings are integrated with their surroundings and add vitality and public spaces. They are also notable for their designation as Japan’s first post-disaster support base, contributing to the safety and disaster resilience of the district.
