The 80-year-old Industry Club of Japan building in Tokyo’s Marunouchi district, which has served as a hub for Japan’s business circles, will next month undergo reconstruction.

The building will be torn down and reborn as a 143-meter high-rise through a joint development project with a neighboring office building. At the same time, part of the historic structure will be preserved and used as an annex to the new high-rise.
