It doesn't seem to be a very touristy area. Correct me if I am wrong, but in these pictures I can never identify anything familiar. Even in the aerial, I can't identify any building, and I know a good amount of them in Tokyo.

No, I wouldn't like it in Ginza, but how about Odaiba?

What's the name of the nearest metro station to this new Tower?

Oshiage Station (押上駅) on the Asakusa line and the Hanzamon line.

Narihirabashi Station of the Tobu Isesaki railway Line is also right next to the site.

location: google maps, it's actually close to the Sensoji temple in Asakusa it's only 1,5 km east of the temple.

"Oshiage"

Odaiba buildings are legally required to be below 80m in height due to its proximity to Haneda airport.

Sumida River flows near a tower. The new river is made.




This whole area is got ready, and the river is expanded, too.

I believe the tower is being built where it is because the elevation is slightly higher than most of Tokyo, but more importantly, the project is being undertaken by a railway company who owns that land already. This is much cheaper than buying land in Tokyo. Also, first and foremost, the tower is a TV broadcasting tower. It doesn't matter where it is as long as it gets the job done. Tourism/retail is an afterthought. The revenue they will get for leasing the tower to broadcasters is tremendously higher than any other schemes.
