Tokyo developers give office towers post-pandemic makeovers

Vision includes smartphone-operated elevators and facial-recognition doors

The projects by Mitsui Fudosan, Tokyo Tatemono and Mitsubishi Estate all feature amenities aimed at curbing the spread of the coronavirus.

TOKYO -- Three building projects underway around Tokyo Station offer visions for how workplaces can adapt to life amid the coronavirus pandemic -- a critical question for developers as the rise in remote work raises questions about the future of the office.

A redevelopment project by Mitsui Fudosan in Yaesu, just east of the transit hub, is slated to open in 2022, becoming he company's first large-scale project completed since the start of the pandemic.
