Mori Building, a Japanese urban landscape developer, has partnered with Aman, an operator of luxury hotels and resorts, in the Toranomon-Azabudai Urban Redevelopment Project, an urban renewal project that is expected to revitalise central Tokyo once completed in 2023.
The two main results of this partnership will be the branded residence Aman Residences, Tokyo and luxury hotel Janu Tokyo, which is Aman’s sister brand.
Janu Tokyo will also represent the debut of the Janu brand in Japan.
Mori Building president and CEO Shingo Tsuji said: “Tokyo must add to its magnetic power if it is to succeed in its competition with the world’s greatest cities. Mori Building is joining hands with Aman, which operates diverse world-class resorts, to provide a world-leading residential environment and hotel unlike anything ever seen in Tokyo, where people will achieve harmony with nature as well as connect with and inspire others through creativity. By realizing this new form of ‘urban wellness,’ Mori Building will enhance Tokyo’s magnetic power.”
Aman and Janu chairman and CEO Vladislav Doronin said: “Launching our first urban Aman Residences in Japan is a milestone moment in the history of Aman and speaks to our brand’s close relationship and symbiosis with this country and its incredibly special culture.
“Working with leading developers Mori Building, and being part of the Toranomon-Azabudai project, will enable us to bring to life Aman’s fifth development within Japan, this time offering a permanent sanctuary for owners as well as exclusive access to the Aman lifestyle.
“Furthermore, it will provide the setting for Janu Tokyo. In this hub of culture and art, we want to connect guests to the heart of this vibrant community and offer a chance for creative expression.”
Aman’s luxury hotel brand Janu will be located on floors 1–13 in the B-2 District Tower.
Designed by Denniston (Malaysia) under the leadership of Jean-Michel Gathy, the hotel will feature around 120 luxury rooms, all offering views of a central square filled with lush greenery.
Janu Tokyo will feature Japan’s largest spa of around 3,500m² , a fitness center, six restaurants, and a cafe and bars for leisure and business gatherings.
Located on floors 54–64 of the 330m A District Tower, Aman Residences, Tokyo will provide 91 hotel-branded residences with exclusive services, including a residents-only Aman Spa.
