Live Virtual Tour of Otemachi-One, Tokyo

May 24, 2021 10:00am – 11:00am (GMT+09:00) Osaka, Sapporo, Tokyo Virtual
Tours

Otemachi-One is the largest mixed-use development in Tokyo’s Otemachi district. Encompassing 357,700 square meters spread across two towers, the project brings offices, retail, a Four Seasons Hotel, and new public space to the edge of the Imperial Palace in a bustling urban center. Through this prominent location, Otemachi-One accentuates Tokyo’s history while communicating the city’s position at the forefront of technology and innovation. The shorter tower – a 160-meter-tall building – faces the palace, and responds to the historic building through its scale and through a materiality that is attuned to the neighboring structures. Its detailing is inspired by traditional Japanese craftsmanship and woodworking techniques, and is modernized by a granite and glass cladding. Conversely, the taller tower, which rises 200 meters, embodies the aesthetic of contemporary Japan, with a facade of glass and steel. Public amenities include a basement-level commercial area offering a variety of retail and restaurants, as well as health and wellness services for the building’s tenants. At ground level, a 6,000-square-meter plaza with a reflecting pool and native plants accommodates outdoor programming, and represents the largest green space in the district. In this exclusive virtual tour, the project team will take you through scenes of one of Tokyo’s most important developments.
