The general guidelines of this massive master plan are: enhancing lifestyles through a green approach, connecting seamlessly various aspects of people's lives by eliminating barriers between facilities, and, creating a new international urban focal point as well as a new cultural and economic area in the heart of Tokyo, through the connection of the so-called Hills, the Cultural Heart, and the Global Business Hub.
