This tower has one of the best spots to view all of Tokyo's clusters.

Can you imagine razing down a few blocks to build a new road like this in say... NYC? Haha all the lawsuits from homeowners, business owners, preservationists... Good for Tokyo.

It's just as difficult in Tokyo as in New York.

The planning for this road started in 1946 during the American occupation, it was to become a new 100m wide road from the American embassy to Shinbashi Station using the empty land from the bombings.

The current redevelopment process started in 1998, it got it's final approval in 2003 and construction started in 2005.

All in all it has been a lengthy process, with plenty of opposition from land owners. But their reward is not just a good price for their land, part of the Mori Building deal is that they have become partners in the redevelopment. As a result they now own part of this new tower which is likely to become very profitable over the next couple of decades.

Why don't they remove loads of wire in the street somewhere as they do in Europe and Russia? It is a real eye-sore.

In that last pic it reminds me a bit of the new 1WTC mixed with the old 1WTC
