Out of curiosity, why did it took Japan so long to finally build a supertall skyscraper? -excluding the Sky tree-

Who wants to be so high in an active earthquake zone like this?

During the post war economic rush it wasn't technically possible with the building codes in Japan. Only after the real estate bubble broke in the early 1990s it became possible to go supertall, but then then the economy became the main factor why a supertall didn't came about until now. Developments became more conservative, focusing more on the demands from the market rather then city marketing.

But there are more reasons:
- earthquakes, building supertall is of course possible in an earthquake prone area but it doesn't make it easier.
- the CBD locations in Tokyo and Osaka have height restrictions because of aviation laws. (for this tower the area with these restriction was redrawn to make it possible to go to 300m)
- The big Japanese companies prefer their own building instead of sharing it with other companies.
- Just plane economics. Going taller means more cost to build and maintain, smaller buildings just generate bigger profits, especially with the thickness of Japanese office buildings and the earthquakes.
- No need to show of, Japan doesn't have to proof to the world that it's a modern country.

In other words there are a bunch of reasons, but it's mostly economics. In this case it's a railway company that wants to show off a bit, if it was developed by a proper project developer it wouldn't be as tall.

update

12/19









The pedestrian bridge is also progressing nicely.

Not to sound mean; but that sounds really off considering Japan has quite a few Nuclear Power Plants.

I hope the Tennoji/Abeno area will see a high rise construction boom after completing this tower. All the office buildings are concentrated in kyobashi and umeda, this tower will definitely bring a different and new perspective to Tennoji.

Is the Osaka metro area still urbanizing enough to justify construction like that?

Yes! But I'm not 100% if this would apply in the soon future. That depends on how this project will turn out.

Looks like it is making good progress. I only wish they would have build it in Umeda instead of in Abenobashi.
