It consists of 52 floors and 5 basement levels with an total floor area of 244,305 square meters. This makes it the second-tallest skyscraper in the city after Midtown Tokyo. The complex offers a mixture of office spaces, conference halls, restaurants, shops, ANDAZ TOKYO hotel and luxury apartments. The landmark building along the new Loop Road No. 2 is a must-see for modern architecture lovers. To promote this new facility a mascot was created with the name Toranomon.
