■Facility configuration
As work styles become more diverse, we believe it is important to provide support facilities that accommodate the flexibility of work styles. We are collaborating with nearby facilities (Akasaka Intercity AIR, The Okura Tokyo, etc.) with the aim of maximizing the performance of each person working in this building and creating a place where everyone who gathers can find excitement and job satisfaction. We also planned highly convenient worker support facilities. Specifically, the “Business Center” (1st to 3rd floors) consists of a shared
office/conference/fitness/bike station (bicycle parking by
reservation)/concierge that provides a fulfilling office environment, meeting the day and night needs of workers and visitors. We will support the QWL of each visitor and worker by establishing a corresponding “commercial area” (1st to 2nd floors) and a “sky lounge” (22nd floor) that can be used by workers for refreshment and social gatherings.
A business center that supports diverse work styles

Efforts to realize the project proposal by our group
After our group was officially selected as the owner of the reserved floor in March 2019*2, we have been holding discussions with related parties to realize the plan proposed at the time of competitive bidding. As shown below, in addition to realizing high-quality office specifications and thorough BCP measures, we are steadily progressing with the realization of planning proposals, such as acquiring environmental certification and area management initiatives in response to recent social demands.
[Image 14:×628.png ]
■Standard floor plan
◇Office specifications (rental floors: 16th to 37th floors)
The standard office floor is approximately 3,500 square meters (approximately 1,050 tsubo) per floor, with an easy-to-use shape and a column-free space that is easy to layout, allowing for an efficient office layout. The specifications allow for the installation of a pantry and internal stairs to encourage communication, and the plan is to flexibly respond to the needs of a variety of companies.
◇Complete BCP measures (building structure, emergency power supply)
[Image 15:×693.png ]
■BCP conceptual diagram
The building uses a seismic damping structure to ensure “special grade (S grade)” seismic performance that will not cause damage to the structure even in extremely rare seismic motions (seismic intensity 7 class). A dual system consisting of a cogeneration system that utilizes medium pressure gas and a dual fuel emergency generator allows for 60VA/m2 of electricity to be supplied to the private area even in the event of a power outage, and the elevators, lighting, and security in the common areas to be available for normal use. . It is also equipped with fuel that allows the emergency generator to operate for 168 hours (7 days) even in the event of a medium-pressure gas cut-off. Even in the unlikely event of a disaster, we have built an office environment where tenant companies, including head office functions, can continue business with peace of mind, using Japan’s highest level of BCP measures.

■Obtaining environmental certification
◇Environmental response/area management initiatives
