The Metropolis team was invited for a sneak peek inside the new complex. Here’s a preview of what you can look forward to exploring this fall.

Designed with the concept of “A City Within A City” and a “Modern Urban Village,” this multi-use complex harmoniously integrates diverse urban functions, offices, residences, retail facilities, cultural institutions, educational establishments, and medical centers.

Highlights include the new elementary school campus of the British School in Tokyo and the highly anticipated Tokyo Venture Capital Hub—the first large-scale venture capital hub in Japan. Additionally, the internationally acclaimed EPSON teamLab Borderless experience will be relocated to MORI Building DIGITAL ART MUSEUM, and the Keio University Center for Preventive Medicine will also find its new home here.

Similar to the green spaces found at Toranomon Hills and Roppongi Hills, Azabudai Hills boasts a spacious Central Green crowned by a canopy designed by Heatherwick Studio, along with an orchard featuring 11 species of fruit trees. During hanami season, Sakura-asa Street and Cherry Blossom Gateways will come to life.
