Finding the building on Google Maps, it's the Yokoso Rainbow Tower. I have no idea what it is used for though, although, it looks like it might be mixed use with what appears to be terraces on the top half.

Toranomon Hills looks like a great project. It is a beautiful tower, and it looks absolutely massive both in terms of height and footprint.

Thanks. Also, it's an apartment building.

A huge update from Bluestyle, taken over the last couple of days.

In the 5th picture we see that the final tower crane is being taken down by a small crane that will itself be taken down in parts by the elevator.

I still find the style this building was built in to be pretty uniquely Northeast Asian. Both Korea and Japan have a lot of buildings with fairly simple shapes but detailing you'd almost call ornate if the design of it was more complex. It's almost a kind of minimalism; I'm a fan.

Pretty evil that they're doing this in favor of increased car usage (and adding huge amounts of parking). One of Tokyo's huge advantages is the degree to which it's avoided the post-WWII auto fetish that's ruined so many other cities.... ><

Great photos, is this the last skyscraper of 200 + metres planned for Tokyo?

No, it's certainly not the last 200m+ tower.

For starters there are currently 2 other towers U/C

almost completed:

Yomiuri Newspaper Tokyo Head Office Building | 200m
http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=1496067

just started construction this week:

Roppongi 3-chome East District Redevelopment |249m
http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=1459415


And there are several planned with the start of construction in the next couple of years.

Nishi-Shinjuku 5-chome Center North District Redevelopment | 209m
http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=1549298

Akasaka 1-chome Redevelopment | 202m
http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=1459417

Shibuya Station District Redevelopment | 230m
http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=1494593

Hamamatsucho Station West Entrance Area Development | 2x 200m
http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=1549296

And over in Yokohama:

Yokohama Kitakanadori North District Redevelopment A-4 Block | 223m
http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showth...#post108243121



And there are several less concrete plans that are likely to include 200m+ towers, like the plans for a 2nd Roppongi Hills and the upcoming redevelopments for the blocks across the street at the rear exit of Tokyo station.

Tokyo needs its first supertall i think, though also 200m towers can create a cool skyline
