Some pics from panoramio:

The Sumida River and The Asahi Beer Headquarters(the tower will be just behind the buildings on the right):


The Sumida Ku, Sumida River and Sobu Line.(The tower will be in the middle of these boxed residential buildings)



Just try to figure the tower rising from the middle of this scene:


Surely this tower will revenue this area...

Sumida word is an area with much working poor in Tokyo.
The average life span is lowest in Tokyo, too. As well as Sumida, there are many needies in 23 wards of eastern parts (Sumida, Adachi, Katsushika, Edogawa). The reason is because there are many small factory workers. If compare to New York, Sumida is the Bronx.

This tower should have been built in Nishi Shinjuku.

Yeah, Sumida is a working class suburban area and the land is cheaper there.The tower will revenue this area and pump lots of money to the local economy.
But I don't like the comparison with the Bronx. There are several department stores, railway stations and some nice places. It's far better than Bronx, and this is not the worst place of Tokyo, after all.

There is not the department store in Sumida. there is a shopping center such as Wal-Mart. The average income of inhabitants of Sumida is low next to Adachi in the Tokyo whole.

Wow! I didn't figured it. But they are really similar...


This is the real Sapporo Tower.



And this is the Tokyo Tower, actually:



(Just to avoid newer mistakes)

The thing is, in Japan, factory workers are not poor. The rules and trend of wealth distribution is distinctively different from that of the US. That's why there is pretty much no clear "slum" or "bad area" in Tokyo. Of course the other side is that there is no clear "rich neighborhoods" either. (Setagaya maybe? But still not quite...)

But anyway, this tower will probably spur redevelopment projects nearby as Oshiage area is not bad location-wise.

I can't believe Tadao Ando has pulled a Tachu Naito. Doesn't fit him at all.
