LG Electronics Plans to Move Tokyo Office to Kyobashi Tower

LG Electronics Inc. (066570), the world’s second-largest maker of televisions, said it plans to move its Tokyo office to Kyobashi Trust Tower near Tokyo Station from Akasaka to consolidate its group companies into one location.

LG is relocating from Akasaka Twin Tower, in the city’s Minato ward, as early as March, said Kim Dong Gun, a spokesman for the Seoul-based company in Tokyo. LG will occupy four floors in the new building, he said.

LG is consolidating office space to boost efficiency, Kim said.

Kyobashi Trust Tower, owned by Mori Trust Co., is scheduled to be completed by the end of the month, according to the company’s website.
