【看英文中國郵報學英文】日本東京2023將出現新的摩天大樓,成為全日本最高建築,建商森集團於週四透露了位於東京六本木邊緣區域新大型建案。

Japan’s tallest skyscraper will dominate Tokyo’s city skyline in March 2023, with developer Mori Building on Thursday unveiling a new mega-project on the fringe of the glitzy Roppongi district.

這項建案在三十年前就已開始,根據森集團的執行長Shingo Tsuji,這項實驗性的計畫將花費約七十億美金(約台幣2300億)。

The development, which has been 30 years in the making, has tentatively been dubbed the Toranomon-Azabudai project and will cost about 580 billion yen (S$7.5 billion), Mori Building’s chief executive officer Shingo Tsuji said.

森集團過去完成的建築物經常將住家與綠地、商家、甚至文化機構諸如美術館或藝廊等結合混用。

Many of Mori’s properties are mixed-use developments with residences, ample green spaces, retail outlets, as well as cultural facilities like museums or galleries.

這棟建築物也不例外。根據執行長,它將容納奢華旅館、國際學校,並且旨在「使東京中心地區重獲新生」,該地區現在充滿木屋與狀態不佳的老房。

It will also house a luxury hotel and an international school, said Mr Tsuji, adding that it is “aimed at revitalising a large area of central Tokyo” that is littered with old wooden houses and buildings in bad shape.

這個想法在1989年就已經開始醞釀,森集團的代表花費多年挨家挨戶地說服當地居民和地主釋出土地以做新的住宅區規劃。

The idea sprouted as early as 1989 but Mori’s representatives spent years knocking on doors to persuade residents and property owners to give up their land in exchange for residential space in the new development.
