The Shiodome master plan incorporates a 44-story office tower of 140,000 sqm., a smaller tower for the Matsushita Headquarters of 4,400 sqm., retail area of 2,800 sqm., and the reconstructed historic Shimbashi station, Japan's first railroad depot, on an unusual site located at the south-eastern edge of the Ginza shopping area in central Tokyo. From an urban design point of view, the project was challenging. The site is a very complex, irregular shape and faces a network of streets and elevated roadways on the north side, new large high-rise projects on the east and south sides, and an undistinguished low-rise development on the west side. Respectful of its historic and cultural importance, the reconstructed Shimbashi Railroad Station occupies the central and most prominent position on the site. It is flanked on the east by the Matsushita Headquarters and on the south by the larger Shiodome City Center Tower.
