The three layers of different-sized blocks symbolize the new city center of Shinjuku. On clear days, Mount Fuji is visible, and the upper stories enjoy a panoramic view of the city. But there is more than aesthetics to Shinjuku Park Tower. It was designed for functionality too, including, for example, mechanisms and structures to restrain any acceleration in wind speed so as to minimize the impact of "building wind tunnels." In the upper stories, the Park Hyatt Tokyo is located; in the lower stories, the Living Design Center OZONE and a number of shops and restaurants.
