The Sumitomo Fudosan Roppongi Grand Tower (住友不動産六本木グランドタワー) is a 231 m (roughly 758 ft) commercial skyscraper located in Roppongi, Minato ward, Tokyo.[1][2]

The 40-story tower is a result of the Roppongi 3-chome East Side Project (六本木三丁目東地区プロジェクト, Roppongi san-chome higashi chiku purojekuto). Completed in September 2016, it is the largest commercial office building in by Sumitomo Realty & Development's (住友不動産) property portfolio, a real estate developer that owns and manages over 200 office properties in central Tokyo.[3]

Construction[edit]

Located in the Roppongi district of Tokyo adjacent to the Izumi Garden Tower, also owned by Sumitomo Realty, on a site that used to house the former IBM Japan Head Office Building (87.4m, 1991) and the former Roppongi Prince Hotel, closed in 2006.[4]

The building was designed by Nikken Sekkei Ltd. and is being built by a joint venture between Obayashi Corporation and Taisei Corporation.

Facilities[edit]

Built on a sloping site with a car passenger entrance and main atrium on the 4th floor, the 1st floor of the main office tower will be directly connected to Roppongi-itchōme Station on the Tokyo Metro Namboku Line.

Office tenants[edit]

Floors 10 to 27 and 31 to 43 are designated as commercial office space. Publicly accessible retail and restaurants will occupy floors 2 and 3. The tower is the new headquarters of TV Tokyo and TX Network.

Residences[edit]

The main tower is joined by a 27-storey 109 meter residential building.[5]
