Ark Hills (アークヒルズ Āku Hiruzu?) is a major office development by Mori Building Company in Minato, Tokyo. Completed in 1986, the complex includes the ANA InterContinental Tokyo Hotel, the ARK Mori Building (a 37-floor, almost 2,000,000-square-foot (190,000 m2) mixed-use tower), the world-class Suntory Hall concert hall, a TV studio and several apartment buildings. TV Asahi still uses its former headquarters as an annexe for some of its departments and subsidiaries. Every September the area celebrates with an autumn festival that includes music, dancing, food, art, and shopping.
The name "ARK" comes from the fact that the complex is located at the intersection of the Akasaka, Roppongi, and Kasumigaseki districts. (Another explanation is that the name stands for Akasaka and Roppongi Knot.) It is built on a slight slope, rather than a hill. Residents of the building include business travelers and celebrities.
