In an engineering first for the city, an underground tunnel will place a portion of the Loop Road No. 2 arterial road beneath the more than four acre Toranomon site, thereby freeing up the tower’s immediate environs for people-friendly plazas, community pathways, and open vistas. The Shinbashi-Toranomon section of Loop Road No. 2 is scheduled to open to traffic in spring 2014; it is slated to connect with the Wangan-sen Bayshore Route and other traffic networks serving Haneda Airport and the seaport area in 2017.

Wonder if they will accept reservations in time to use a suite upgrade cert before they expire in February 2014...

+1 Can't wait for a suite as well.

Whatever the opening date for reservations will be, one would hope it will be handled better than what we're hearing about the Andaz Maui.

I can confirm that this news is correct. This will be the third French Hyatt GM in Tokyo.

This is the MacArthur Highway, which has been in the planning and construction phase since the late 1940s. It took them well over 30 years to buy out all the properties that needed to be demolished in order to build the highway. Apparently eminent domain is not big in Japan, unlike Alphaville.

Nice new Hyatt property closer to Haneda, away from Shinjuku where the HR and PH are at. Seems the hotel (located in Toranomon Hills) is developed by same company that develops Roppongi Hills and the GH Tokyo?

I hope to be able to book a suite for the first week. We'll see. I'm very excited! The Andaz is now coming up in reservation searches, but it looks like it's not yet accepting reservations.
