LocationEdit

Tokiwabashi Tower is 212 meters tall and is located on the former site of the JX Building and the Daiwa Gofukubashi Building, near Tokyo Station.[2] Also known as Tower A, it is one of two skyscrapers at the redevelopment site, the other one being the Torch Tower, which will be 390 meters tall when it is completed in 2027.

BuildingEdit

Tokiwabashi Tower has 43 floors in total, of which 38 are above ground and 5 below ground—with 3 of them being used as a parking garage.[3] The ground and first floors of the tower have retail areas and restaurants with seats facing the district's plaza, which will cover an area of 7,000-square meters when it is completed in 2027.[4]

The third and eighth floors at Tokiwabashi Tower are shared spaces with a mix of cafeterias, meeting rooms and event spaces. All other floors are used for offices.[5]
