A unique city within a city, this complex includes the Midtown Tower, the tallest building in Tokyo, and consists of offices, residential spaces, retail stores, restaurants, entertainment, recreational facilities, gardens, the Ritz-Carlton Tokyo hotel, the Suntory Museum of Art, spaces for public art, and much more. Tokyo Midtown and UHM have recently established a partnership that brings the grand prize winner of the art competition to the Department of Art + Art History for presentations and to work with students.
