Completed in 1986, the development was the first of Mori Building’s many “Hills” developments, such as Roppongi Hills, Omotesando Hills, and the new Azabudai Hills.

Along with the two main towers, there are housing blocks, gardens, a hotel (the ANA Intercontinental), a concert hall (Suntory Hall) and central plaza with a huge artificial waterfall. More recently, two new towers have been added—Ark Hills South Tower and Ark Hills Front Tower.
