Mitsubishi Estate unveiled the name and design of the skyscraper that is set to be the tallest building in Japan when it opens in 2027. It will be situated near Tokyo Station and will soar 390 meters high (1,279 ft). It will have 63 floors of office space, and on the lower floors, it will also open restaurants, shops, a bath house, and a 2,000-seat grand hall. Mitsubishi Estate named it “Torch Tower” as the design was envisioned as a flaming torch that lights up the world. The “flames” will serve as an observation deck overlooking the capital and the famous Mount Fuji.

Currently, Japan’s highest building is Osaka’s 300-meter Abeno Harukas. The ongoing 330-meter building in Toranomon-Azabudai district will also be surpassed by Torch Tower. But Mitsubishi Estate assured in a press briefing that the soon to be highest building will have the “highest level of seismic resistance”. The Japanese developers said that the development will also provide common areas where people can take shelter if there are natural disasters.
