2nd Roppongi Hills (Roppongi 5-chome Project) completion in 2030 – Roppongi will be an even more attractive town! -
The outline of the plan for Tokyo’s largest redevelopment, “Roppongi 5-chome West District Redevelopment”, has finally been revealed. The plan is also commonly known as “2nd Roppongi Hills”, which covers a vast area adjacent to Roppongi Hills and Roppongi Intersection. In Minato Ward, where ARK Hills, Roppongi Hills, and Toranomon Hills were built, and Azabudai Hills will open in the fall of 2023, this is another super-large-scale redevelopment project.
The project, which will be developed by Mori Building Co.Ltd. jointly with Sumitomo Realty & Development Co. Ltd., started planning in March 2008. It is a super-large-scale plan on a site of approx. 80,000 square meters and a total floor area of approx. 1.08 million square meters, which is scheduled to begin in the year of 2025 and to complete in the year of 2030.

The building to be built in Bock A will be a skyscraper with a height of 327m and will be the 2nd tallest building in Japan after the “Torch Tower” (with 63 floors above ground and 4 floors below ground, abt.390m high), which is scheduled to be completed in 2027 in front of Tokyo Station. The tower condominium to be built in Block B will be the tallest tower condominium in Japan.
It has been 20 years since the birth of Roppongi Hills, which greatly changed the former image of Roppongi only as a nightlife area. “2nd Roppongi Hills” is expected to transform Roppongi into an even more sophisticated international city while carefully protecting old things. We would like to introduce on our website further details of the project and the process of change in the site from demolition of the current buildings to opening of the new buildings, so please look forward to it.
