The new 195 meter tall JP Tower Nagoya adjacent to Nagoya Station is all set to partially open in June this year. Plans for a full opening are set for April 2017.
Already parts of Kitte Nagoya - the Central Post Office and post office shop on the ground floor is open. You can purchase souvenir stamps, postcards and other Japan post office goods in the shop.
JP Tower Nagoya will become one of the tallest skyscrapers in the Chubu area of central Japan and joins the twin towers of Nagoya Station, Lucent Tower, Midland Square and HAL Mode Gakuen Spiral Towers as high rise buildings in the Meieki area. Construction of the building began in 2013.
Offices will occupy the floors between the 5th and 39th floors while the lower floors will have the Central Post Office, Post office bank plus meeting rooms and a conference hall. Around 40 stores, cafes and restaurants will occupy space from the first basement floor to the 3rd floor. There will be easy access from the first and second basement floors directly from Nagoya Station with access to Nagoya highway bus terminal from the first floor.
The development mirrors JP ("Japan Post") Tower in the Maranouchi District near Tokyo Station that replaced the old post office building in 2013.
