Project outcome

Kanda Manseibashi building is twenty stories above ground and two stories underground, with an approximate GFR of 28,500 square metres.

During the planning phase, the Lendlease Design team from Australia took part in the project's concept design, and organised a tour to visit green buildings that Lendlease was formerly in charge of within Australia. Lendlease proposed the installation of the building’s Winter Garden - a space where windows can be opened, and which can improve the office working environment.
