Atago Green Hills, Forest Tower+ expand detail
700,000 square feet / 65,000 square meters
Atago Green Hills is a modern array of offices, residences, and shops in a park-like setting adjacent to Mt. Atago. The project comprised the design of two 42-story towers — the Mori office tower and the Forest residential tower — and the redesign of a large public park to include the 500-year-old Seisho-ji Temple. Situated between two major business districts and adjacent to many hotels and embassies, Atago is an important business center for Tokyo.
Highly sculpted in form, Forest Tower starts at the base as a square block. As the tower rises, its chamfered corners splay open as the building becomes round toward the top. Unlike the primarily glass Mori Tower, Forest Tower is mainly clad in Japanese ceramic tile. The glass of the ribbon windows is highly transparent, giving residents unobstructed views of the city.
The Atago Green Hills development offers numerous amenities, including over 20 restaurants, cafes and shops.
Both towers provide high levels of comfort and safety, including advanced earthquake resistance. In 2003, the project received an Award for Excellence from the Urban Land Institute.
