This certainly is a very intriguing tower that shows many faces; sharp, clean, rich and at the same time subtle in detail and decoration

I like this tower a lot... Nothing particularly ground breaking, in as much as it looks to have all been done before, e.g. The garden balconies are similar to Drapers Gardens (UK), or the diagrid steel frame is similar in appearance to The Broadgate Tower (UK). But, I guess not all towers needs to be innovative in their design, but focus more on the functionality of the building itself. The distance shots with the building in the horizon are truly impressive, and really show how high the tower is. A treasurable building for Osaka, and indeed Japan. - G

Agree 100%. I know some would contend the form isn't particularly elegant, the various facade treatments are too busy and as you stated, it's not that there is a lot going on here that hasn't already been done before.

But it still totally works for me. The height and massing feel well proportioned, the various angles and intersections do seem to have a nice hierarchy and visual appeal and the whole thing just has the look of what I would expect a huge, modern Japanese supertall to have. In that sense it is one of my favorite towers out there right now. It's not a sculpture or work of art but that's a-ok...it's certainly not trying to be.

Days before the opening the 1st pictures from the viewing deck have been posted on the internet. It looks like it was already specially opened for residents from the direct neighborhood or something similar.
