Richard Meier & Partners

New York-based practice, Richard Meier & Partners has just announced that the first of the two Harumi Residential Towers planned for Tokyo has been completed.

Prominently positioned in Harumi Chuo-ku City in Tokyo and adjacent to the site of the 2020 Olympic Village, the development is the first residential project in Japan to be designed by Pritzker Prize-winning architect Richard Meier. Working alongside him has been design partner and colleague, Dukho Yeon. The project architect was New York firm, Balestri Architects.

Situated on the waterfront promenade of Tokyo Bay, the project is a focal point for the Harumi district. As one of the largest and most prestigious undertakings of the Mitsubishi Jisho Residence, the Harumi Residential Towers is intended to reflect Mitsubishi’s commitment to the international and dynamic cityscape of metropolitan Tokyo. The two new towers ‘are very much part of this urban context’ according to Yeon.
