One of the largest and most prestigious undertakings of the Mitsubishi Estate Company, the Harumi Towers embody Mitsubishi’s commitment to providing metropolitan Tokyo with an alluring architectural image and serve as a model of the company’s contributions to modern Japanese society.
Each tower is 48 stories tall, rising to the same height of 172 meters and containing a total of 1,800 units, a truly monumental scale exceptional in this section of Tokyo. Oriented North-South as a response to urban planning requirements, the towers also capitalize on expansive views of the Tokyo Bay stretching off into the horizon. Throughout, the project provides a clear expression of form, space, and texture by using natural materials and subtle plays of light and reflection, resulting in an exceptionally well-crafted design entirely in harmony with its environmental context.
The buildings are highly visible along the Harumi Canal and from the Harumi Bridge when commuting from the waterfront district toward the center of Tokyo. Simultaneously, the buildings themselves frame views of many significant Tokyo landmarks, including the Rainbow Bridge, establishing a strong visual dialogue with the city and effortlessly blending into the seascape and sky.
