Shiodome is an area conveniently close to the southern end of the famous Ginza Street and known as the place where the first terminal railway station in Japan was constructed more than 100 years ago.
The Shiodome City Center is a building complex aiming to provide a variety of functions and was designed with a particularly high FAR (Floor Area Ratio) of 1200% that was exceptionally permitted in this development area by the Tokyo Metropolitan Government. There are retail shops and restaurants on the 2nd basement level through the 3rd floor level, and restaurants are located on the topmost 41st & 42nd floor while offices occupy spaces on the floors between the 4th and 40th levels. Through the use of a building core planning design, the typical floor was designed to create a continuous space secured for the inhabitants. Through this building core design, and the application of a 9.6m wide column spacing, the inhabitants have been given the opportunity to experience an exciting view of cityscape through the perimeter glass screen.
