The full name is Mode Gakuen Cocoon Tower with 203 or 204 meters and 50 floors. This will be a vocational school for up to 10.000 students (source here).

Here's the rendering from tokyo-construction.com:


By the way, there's another thread for this building under the name Mode Cocoon Gakuen Tower . That name sequence sounds odd and the thread starter has been banned later on (I bet not due to his writing about Cocoon Tower). After all, there's no chance to reply there anymore, so we should go on posting here...

Interesting: the cladding is fixed immediately after the rise of the steel, so one could think that the building has already topped out. To me, this is the greatest design for a highrise in Tokyo so far, by the way!

Should really brighten that part of the city's cluster a bit. The other buildings look a little dull in comparison apart from the white building with the slope going downward.
