ThinkPark Tower (シンクパークタワー) is a 30-story skyscraper, part of the ThinkPark redevelopment area in Ōsaki, Tokyo. The building construction started in 2004, based on designs by Nikken Sekkei with additional input from CIA, Inc. / The Brand Architect Group and Neil Denari. It was completed in 2007. The official opening took place on October 25 of the same year.

Contents

The ThinkPark complex, which encompasses the building, distinguishes itself by being the first green urbanism project in Japan. [4] Richard Seireeni of The Brand Architect Group named the complex, designed the logo and devised the green urbanism marketing strategy. This approach in turn helped the developers in renting the entire lease space over one year prior to opening. The main functions of the building are office and retail space for companies, restaurants, retail establishments and clinics.
