The name "ARK" is derived from the location of the complex at the intersection of the Akasaka, Roppongi, and Kasumigaseki districts. (Another explanation is that the name stands for Akasaka and Roppongi Knot.) It is built on a slight slope, rather than a hill.
The heliport on the roof of the Ark Mori Building is used to provide direct flights between Narita International Airport and Ark Hills (approximately 20 minutes) it was discontinued on December 1, 2015.

Some nice eateries in this building. If you are in Roppongi, it is a very pleasant walk on Roppongi Dori to Ark Hills and past that will take you to the Imperial Palace. more »
Nice to meet friends near Roppongi area, a lot of restaurants and coffee shop around
It is a shopping center/ office building/ restaurant/hotel and opera complex that has a few gems to discover. A French bistrot and the restaurants around are worth checking out. A few coffee shops too. It is well connected to subway and many bus lines. The bakery in the intercontinental hotel is worth checking.
