Aman has unveiled plans for its first residence-only development, Aman Residences Tokyo, and sister brand Janu’s Japanese debut, Janu Tokyo, both located in the 8.1-hecatre Toranomon-Azabudai development.

Due for completion in 2023, the hotel and residences project signals a collaboration between Aman and Japan’s leading developer, Mori Building Co. Ltd.

The Toranomon-Azabudai development will comprise three towers, the tallest of which will be occupied by the Aman Residences, Tokyo. Taller than any other residential property in central Tokyo, the building, known as ‘A District Tower’, is designed by the preeminent architects of Malaysia’s iconic Petronas Towers, Pelli Clarke Pelli Architects.

The urban residences will offer 91 exclusive homes, designed by Yabu Pushelberg, as well as lifestyle services and a residents-only 1,400m2 Aman Spa with panoramic city views.

Janu, the sister brand of Aman, will bring a contemporary and playful spirit to the urban development, while respecting the sense of place.

Representing the brand’s inaugural city hotel, Janu Tokyo will occupy a prime position facing the project’s central square within a building identified as the ‘B-2 District Tower’. Designed by Denniston under the leadership of Jean-Michel Gathy, the 120-key hotel will feature a 3,500m² Janu Spa featuring extensive wellness facilities, as well as six dining outlets and bars.

“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,” says Vladislav Doronin, Chairman and CEO of Aman and Janu. “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.”

Shingo Tsuji, President and CEO of Mori Building, comments: “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 realising this new form of ‘urban wellness,’ Mori Building will enhance Tokyo’s magnetic power.”
