I wonder if that much height with vertical irregularity will work in a high seismic region .

Woo, this is ugly... Also, I don't think making it earthquake proof is such a big engineering challenge these days?

How can you tell? It's just an initial block envelope for the project with no detail.

We'll see more detailed renders in the future if being a serous proposal.

500m in Saitama eh? Who would've funk?

This television tower is designed to accomodate the needs of digital television broadcasting. Due to the large number of highrises in the 200-300 meter range in the area, the existing Tokyo Tower is not high enough to ensure clear signal transmission. Saitama City is near the geographical center of the Tokyo metropolitan area.

Approval for this project was done by citizen approval in 2004. 1,000,000 signatures were needed, 1,750,000 people signed.

Following the announcement of project approval at a public ceremony on September 22, 2004, spotlights were shined into the sky to mark the location of the proposed building.

The original concept for the tower has been replaced by three proposals: one by the Obelisk Group, one by SDBT Research Society, and one by Nikken Sekkei, Kajima Design, and Mitsui Realty.

This tower eventually lost the competition with Sumida Tower as the New Tokyo Tower, and thus will not be built.

I've noticed proposals in Japan or South Korea never seem to get built but if you find out about a planned skyscraper in China or the United Arab Emirates it's already under construction.

It's not a render.

It's just the block envelope for the building (basically the external shape of it), and if this is a dead project it's unlikely we will ever see any detailed renders.
