Sumida Tower is not yet been approved!
I think Tokyo will be much more imprsessive when Sumida Tower, Nishi shinjuku 3 chome project, Mid-town Tower and Tokyo station redevelopement will be completed!!

I'm not impressed with any of these boxes. I guess they aren't building anything else due to the fact that japan is so small for such a big population- land is expensive. Soon they will start building underground cities unless of course they invade another country... history does have a tendency of repeating itself.

That's true...shapes are not amazing but Tokyo is just great!!...Buildings are much more modern than any other city in the world.
I am sure in the future also Tokyo will have buildings with nice shapes as Sumida Tower and Mode Gakuen projects...

I was suprised about the building boom in Tokyo. Now what the city needs is a supertall!

well maybe this was the wrong word, i should have said "poor" archticture, what i mean is that the designs are not very creative or special.

There are still far more creative and sexy scrapers in Tokyo than Dubai. Towers like the Metropolitan Government Building, Shinjuku Park Tower, Roppongi Hills Tower, Dentsu Headquarters at Shiodome, NTV Headquarters, and Atago Green Hills Tower are all at least as pretty and/or impressive as the Burj al Arab which is currently the only memorable completed building in Dubai. I think Tokyo's skyscrapers are very under-rated.

Yes I agree with you, Monkey. But let me underline that except Tokyo Tower there is not a real landmark in Tokyo. I think chuo-ku should have a super high-rise building. From Tokyo bay the panorama could be much much more impressive.
Even though Tokyo is simply GREAT!!!

^ It's true that Tokyo lacks world famous landmarks. There is no Tokyo equivalent of Big Ben, Eiffel Tower, Statue of Liberty, Red Square/Kremlin etc. The iconic image of Japan is a Shinkansen bullet train streaking past Mt Fuji rather than any Tokyo building. Other Japanese icons such as samurai swords, kimonos, geisha, or sushi will also spring to mind. However that does not mean that people around the world have no images to associate with Tokyo. If you mention "Tokyo" to most British people the image they are most likely to picture are the neon-soaked futuristic streetscapes found in districts like Shinjuku or Shibuya.

That´s not a boom, its just regular construction activity in Tokyo, the same stands for São Paulo. In 2005 230 high-rises were completed there and according to local newspapers 2005 construction activity decreased about 15% from 2004.

Well, Tokyo always is changing and adding new highrises to its impressive skyline, and i have no doubts that the activity will never stop...

I agree with many forumers that Tokyo lacks a supertall, just take the example of Taipei, that city is located in a place where earthquakes happens frequently, and they built the world tallest building...

I completly agree with Javier. I think the main reason Tokyo has not a supertall is due by the high limits. It is caused by the Haneda airport near the city center chuo-ku.
Even so I am still thinking Tokyo needs a supertall (from 300 to 350 m.) in the bay area.

thats exactly the reason for unexisting supertalls in Tokyo. There are many buildings with similar heights: Metropolitan government (243m), Mid Town tower (248m), Yoyogi RC (240m), Sunshine 60 (239), City Opera (235), Shinjuku Park (235), all located in Shinjuku
