Mitsui Fudosan, a major Japanese integrated property firm, and Takenaka Corporation, a major construction firm, plan to build a mega wooden office building in Tokyo.
This planned wooden building will be the largest-tallest existing wooden high-rise in Japan, with 17 floors above ground, approx. 70m high and approx. 26,000 m² of gross floor area.
The project will use the cutting-edge fire-resistant laminated lumber “Moen-Wood”, developed by Takenaka Corporation, for its main structural parts. The flooring and finishings will also actively incorporate wood.
As such, this colossal wooden structure will produce around 20% less CO₂ emissions during construction compared to a typical steel-framed office building of the same size.
Based on the project announcement in September 2020, they plan to start construction in 2023, finished by 2025.
They plan to build this wooden building at 1-chome, Nihonbashihoncho, Chuo City, Tokyo. In central Tokyo, you can see a vast concrete jungle. When this wooden structure enters the scene, it should be a real eye-catcher. It may even become a new hot spot for international tourists when you visit Tokyo.
