Urban Renewer Mori Building CEO shares his vision for Tokyo
By Simon Farrell
The Tokyo skyline of 2017 looks quite different from that of 2001—the year in which the twin towers of Atago Green Hills joined ARK Hills in the portfolio of Mori Building Co., Ltd. and kicked off a string of high-rise projects that have transformed Minato Ward. It was the vision of the late Minoru Mori to change the way we live and work through his concept of the Vertical Garden City. A year before his passing in 2012, Mori handed the torch to then-Vice President Shingo Tsuji. In this exclusive interview, his first with an English-language publication, Tsuji explains the importance of “Mori Buildingism” and outlines the developer’s plans for the next decade.
