The 6.5 acre site includes the historic Nihonbashi Takashimaya Department
Store. This important cultural property was built in 1933 and is retained
and renovated as part of the new development. Furthermore, Takashimaya’s
rooftop terrace and gardens will be upgraded and expanded to cover a 65,000
square feet outdoor amenity connected with the office tower. The office tower
facade was designed by renowned architecture firm SOM, who also designed Mitsui
Fudosan’s Tokyo Midtown project in Roppongi. Nihonbashi Takashimaya Mitsui Building is
a key element of the second stage of the Nihonbashi Revitalization Plan.
Construction was completed in summer 2018.
