This tower really gives me an industrial feeling. I guess it's now the central focus point in Osaka.

This is a nice, subtle design, It will mesh well with Osaka's existing skyline.

Magnificent building. I don´t know why I like it so much, I guess it´s the industrial look but mainly because it looks so huge.

Even though there are four towers taller than the Mid-Town tower ( which are this one + WTC in Osaka, Landmark tower in Yokohama and Rinku Gate tower in Izumisano ), Tokyo has by far the most buildings over 200m. ( 20 of the 30 ).

Btw, in other countries it is even more. Think of the USA, Germany, UAE, Australia...
