The renderings look bland, so I hope it'll look better in the real.

I can't believe I didn't go to Tennoji on my last visit to Osaka to see this. Sorry if this has been asked before but is this on the previous site of the Kintetsu department store?

I'll definitely get some photo updates on my next trip though will probably be in a few months.

Great photo updates again Momo

This is indeed the site of the Kintetsu Abeno department store, but only the western part of the complex was demolished for this tower.


08/30





The first structural steel parts have arrived on the site. It doesn't mean that the tower will start to rise very soon. These beams are part of the top down contruction method for the underground floors. They will go down first and then the soil will dug around them and the floors will be attached to these beams as they dig deeper.




Foundation work is also still going on, especially in the corner that was demolished only recently.

Thanks for explaining what's been demolished, I noticed Tennoji-ekimae tram station on Abeno-suji in the photos so I now know where this is.

Will be looking forward to following this one over the coming months

Excellent! I'm not a construction expert and this may be a silly question but will there be any concrete core like for example Shard London Bridge? I can't see how there could be looking at the design of this tower.

There won't be a core like the Shard, it will be a steel frame with (some of) the beams reinforced with concrete for extra strength.


09/21

More beams are going into the ground, they go in quite deep so they have to be welded together on the spot. I will take some time before it's all finished, I predict that the tower won't go up anytime soon.

1. Will the existing department store be reconstructed because of its incorporation into the new tower?

2. I hope some proposed supertall building in Tokyo surpasses the Abenobashi Building in height after it gets completed. Plans for that supertall have been abandoned now. (I'm not referring to the Sky Tree though)

I haven't really looked into it, but what I see from the renders the part of the existing building that hasn't been demolished will at least be getting a new exterior.

And it's to bad that Tokyo known supertall building project, the Nishi-Shinjuku 3-Chome Redevelopment (338m) has been cancelled because of a railway station. Or better the lack of it's own railway station that was demanded by the planning authorities, but the private railway company that runs a line next to the site didn't want to open a new station. It must be said that it was huge redevelopment with next to the 338m high 3 other towers between 190m and 245m, the demanded station wasn't something completely unreasonable. But it's still a shame that it was cancelled because of something like this.

But Tokyo will have a supertall some day, but just don't expect one to go U/C anytime soon. As long smaller buildings with big open floor spaces on every floor are dominating the new office market there won't be to many developers that want to develop a supertall on a location in Tokyo outside the area that is effected by the height restriction from Haneda Airport.

Japan Construction sites look so much cleaner than those in the US or China.
