The first "new station" on the Yamanote loop since Nishi-Nippori Station opened in 1971 will be called "Takanawa Gateway" (高輪ゲートウェイ駅). The name was chosen based on public submissions; though"Takanawa" placed first, JR East decided to name the new station "Takanawa Gateway" (ranked 130th). The station will also be accessible by the Toei Asakusa Line and the Keikyu Line via the nearby Sengakuji Station (source).
