The height of this tower is impressive, but the shape is not very fascinating if compare with Tokyo tower. Bu the way, there are only low rise buildings
around it, The picture as I imagined " A supper high gaint with a group of ants" . I think is not necessary to build a such supper tall tower in there.
The height of the tower is better about the same as Tokyo tower as well.

I don't think it matters ^ ^
Boxy buildings are more space efficient, I guess that's why there is so much in Tokyo: because land is very expensive and cannot be wasted with un-needed architectural refinements ;-)

According to my statistics, Tokyo is the world's 3rd skyline after Hong Kong and New York.

tokyo's obsession with 'refined/modified' boxes was pretty aesthetically successful in the beginning, but with all these new proposals and constructions that obsession is getting really TIRED.

but wow, that's a lot of construction and i think when you compile all the bldgs > 150M, tokyo might just be the third or fourth largest skyline on earth, even though nothing really stands out.

Can anyone here discuss in detail about how Tokyo can have so many hi-rise building, when it's situated in such an active seismic zone. What is the technology that's being used? These buildings have to be superstrong and flexible, to be able to withstand such poundings.

What I like about japanese skyscrapers is that they look large. They are massive.
