The 200-key Tokyo Edition Toranomon will be built within a redevelopment of the former Pastoral Building, a mixed-use project comprising offices, residences and a medical center. Located in Minato ward, the hotel site is walking distance from Kamiyacho Station and Roppongi-Itchome Station and a short drive to Toranomon Station and Tokyo Station. Site excavation work has started.
The properties will result from separate agreements with Mori Trust, the largest owner and franchisee of Marriott International hotels in Japan.
