The Japanese - and the Chinese in Guangzhou - seem to be using a new form of fast construction using criss-crossing steel tubes.

I think that this kind of tower is cheaper and easier to construct than a classic building, am I right ?

Yes, much less expensive. The speed of construction, the lack of floors, bathrooms, lights, walls....90% of this type of tower is empty space.

That doesn't make it any less awesome!

Tokyo should definitely get a supertall building. whatever happened to Nishi-shinjuku 3-chome Office Tower. Hopefully, after the construction of this tower or by early 2011 there should be some good projects.

Nishi-shinjuku 3-chome was canceled because of the lack of it's own railway station, the railway company that owns the line that runs next to the site didn't want to open a new station especially for this project. And that was needed to get permission for the construction.

But at last day of this month the new tallest building for Tokyo will go U/C, the 255m high "Loop Line 2 - Zone III" building. (still waiting for a better name, although this is already much better then the full project name).

More info on all high rise construction in Tokyo:

That's it for this post, there just to many pictures for your computer to handle. I don't want to be held responsible for the overheating of your Intel Pentium processor.

Just 1 preview for the 11/03 blog round-up #3

The building it self is just a "big tall nothing but something tower thingy", but to know they can actually built something that huge, I mean just looking at the pictures, no words, just very impressive.

cheers
