It would be nice to see this in relation to the main cluster in 'downtown' Osaka. Is it close to it? Any pictures showing this would be appreciated.

It's about 6km from the main cluster in the CBD around Osaka station, the distance is comparable between downtown and midtown New York.

Vou need quite a panorama to see the distance.

In the link below there's a picture of the whole skyline at night. At the left you see this tower, if you scroll to the right you 1st see a low rise area with the Osaka WTC in the background that is even further out of the center. Then the skyline becomes denser until you see the CBD on the right side of the pano.

Interesting, that's a very long distance. I didn't realize Osaka was so big.

I remember when Japanese cities wouldn't build skyscrapers because of earthquakes. Yes I have grey hair.

Might I say some good news? Alright, Abeno Harukas will finally reach its final height (300 meters/984 feet) on august 30.
Technically, after two days from now, Yokohama Landmark Tower (296 meters/971 feet) will cede its place to the brandnew mixed use supertall Abeno Harukas.
Well, let's say, finally !!!!! .

I wouldn't be surprised if that would actually happen. The city will see the construction of several new around 200m high towers in the next few years. With the construction of the Chuo Maglev between Tokyo and Nagoya the city should attract more companies that could see even more development. The only thing that could prevent a supertall are the aviation height restrictions. I don't know how strict they are in Nagoya since the airport closest to the station area where all the high towers are located isn't the main airport of the city.


But for now until Thursday Osaka has a 299m tall tower.

When we will see similar building in Tokyo? Soon, I hope. Tokyo deserves it too.

And the tower is officially Topped Out on 300m.

The news brings this event with some nice helicopter views of the tower.

Great. I'm glad there was no delays or obstacles on the way of building this astounding tower.
