Tokyo Garden Terrace (東京ガーデンテラス, Tōkyō Gaaden Terasu) is a 227,200-square-meter mixed-use development in Chiyoda, Tokyo, Japan. Completed in 2016, it includes office, residential, commercial, hotel, and leisure space.[1]

Tokyo Garden Terrace takes up 30,400 square meters previously occupied by the Grand Prince Hotel Akasaka, across the moat from Akasaka-mitsuke Station, and adjacent to the Hotel New Otani.

The primary developer is Seibu Properties working in concert with several partners. The project master design was created by architectural firm Kohn Pederson Fox; Nikken Sekkei is the local architect of record.

Site History[edit]

The former Grand Prince Hotel Akasaka on the site was demolished in 2013. The original hotel structure designed by Kenzo Tange, was scheduled for closure at the end of March 2011, due to outdated building facilities and modifications in Tokyo building codes. In the wake of the 2011 Tōhoku earthquake and tsunami the hotel remained open and served as a temporary housing facility for evacuees from coastal regions of Fukushima Prefecture.

Buildings[edit]

Office and hotel tower[edit]

Tokyo Garden Terrace main tower provides 110,000 meters of office space and 28,700 meters of hotel accommodation in a 180m, 36-floor high-rise building. The Prince Gallery Kioichō, the hotel component, opened in July 2016.[2] The hotel is located on floors 30 to 36 of the main tower and operated by Seibu Holdings in partnership with Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide as a part of Starwood's Luxury Collection of hotel properties.

Residential tower[edit]

A separate residential tower provides 22,700 meters of accommodation in a 90m, 21-floor high-rise tower.

Kitashirakawa Palace[edit]

The Kitashirakawa Palace has been refurbished as a banquet facility, known as Akasaka Prince Classic House. The historic structure was built in the 1930s as the residence of Yi Un, the last crown prince of Korea.
