Usually it's done as a collaboration with major Japanese firms like Nikken Sekkei, likely to assist in understanding the development codes. From what I can see, the aforementioned seems consistent with FAR-intensive squat boxes created under the code, but doubt a single one will be constructed, especially an entire f-ing forest of them which look chopped to tree stumps with average green space.

HASSELL Studio can recycle this proposal for one building somewhere else in Tokyo. I want to see something world class like another Shiodome.

Mitsui Fudosan, the owner of the Imperial Hotel Tokyo next to Hibiya park bought a building right next to it. The NBF Hibiya Building is a 109.3m tall glass office tower constructed in 1984 was purchased in December 2017 by the developer of the almost completed Tokyo Midtown Hibiya project on th other side of the hotel.

With this purchase it's now expected that Mitsui is working on a large redevelopment of Imperial Hotel

I put this one here first.

Hirakata City in Osaka Prefecture has released the results of a public appeal for a large redevelopment of the central area of this town. There are 4 proposals, all include a number of residential towers, a park plus other low rise buildings with public functions.

The number 1 proposal got the best rating for now, but a final decision still has to be made.

Sumitomo Forestry presented 350-meter high wooden skyscraper project in Japan
Quote:
Sumitomo Forestry (SFC) summarized the concept W350 plan to realize wooden high-rise building with a height of 350 meter. According to the announcement, the objective of the project is to realize an environmentally-friendly city made of high-rise buildings made of wood, transforming the town into forest.

The conceptual plan was prepared mainly by Tsukuba Research Laboratory of the company’s R&D institute. It provides a road map to future technologies such as building construction method, environmentally conscious technology, development of trees that become used parts and resources, and widens the possibility of wooden buildings in future.

This building is a wooden steel hybrid structure with 90% wood ratio. With the height of 350 meters, the building has 70 floors above ground. It consumes 185,000 m3 of wood. The project cost is around JPY 600 billion (around USD 5.5 billion).

In the quarter ended December 31, 2017 Sumitomo Forestry increased net sales by 11%.

Several visions and technology for wooden towers have popped up recently.



Takenaka Corperation designed the Alta Ligna Tower to showcase their fire resistant wood, which can be used in high rises up to 20 floors. It's not an actual project yet, but they are working on several projects where it can be used.

http://www.takenaka.co.jp/news/2018/01/03/index.html






Obayashi Corporation came with a more visionary project called LOOP50.

It's a rural building up to 120m tall which will house a full community. Every year the building is extended with new wood from trees that have grown for 50 years. This will be a continuous loop as the part of the structure that turns 50 years will be torn down again and be used to create energy for the building. The trees used for the construction will be grown near the building.

The Tokyo Metropolitan government has released a vision / plan for the next large renovation of Shinjuku Station. In this document they lay a out a baseline proposal for what should happen after 2020.


Shinjuku Large Terminal 新宿グランドターミナル


http://www.toshiseibi.metro.tokyo.jp...eibihosin.html

http://www.toshiseibi.metro.tokyo.jp...seibihosin.pdf


The reason for the plans are the need to replace the aging building at the East and West entrances. The Lumine Est Mall at the East entrance and the Odakyu and Keio Department Stores at the West Entrance. These buildings are already 50 years old, which is old for such buildings in Tokyo. Odakyu and Keio are already working on an plan for the West entrance. Tokyo wants to use that to create a larger project, creating a large terminal on top of the tracks on the north side of the station.

Work is currently going on an a new open underground passage way linking the East and the West entrance without having to pass the gates. The new plans go further and see the creation of a pedestrian deck above the tracks linking the new buildings, including new high rise towers on the East and West entrances. Another part of the plans are to create better spaces for pedestrians on ground level at both entrances. Especially at the West Entrance the station square is very traffic orientated with a bus stops and 2 large ramps to and from the semi underground taxi and logistics roads on level -1.

The aim is to create another passageway between East and West Shinjuku and to improve pedestrian flows in and around the station. Continuing the improvements that started with the construction of the new South Entrance that was completed a couple of years ago.





This diagram shows the pedestrian deck and the new entrance buildings, the blue things on top are encouraging.




In this image you also see a bit of an outline of the possible new towers behind all the lines painted over it.




Work on this large project should start in 2020, so we might not have to wait too long before we see more info on the towers.

Most of these wooden skyscraper visions are indeed mere visions, because height waivers or a complete revision of the law banning wooden buildings at such heights outside of historic sites would be required. LOOP50 could work well for affordable housing because of its modularity, although it's supposed to be for a rural area where a shortage likely doesn't exist.

Speaking of historic sites, stick to wood when reconstructing castles, shrines, temples, and other traditional Japanese buildings, especially as mulligans for all the post-war concrete ones which aren't up to earthquake code anyway, and establish preventative measures against catastrophes like fires.

Saitama City is working on a complete transformation of the east side of Omiya Station. Further plans will be announced later this year, but for now these 2 images have been released via the construction press. They show a modern business district at this Shinkansen Station with possibly several skyscrapers.

The Meiji Jingu Stadium may sell its air rights to pay for its upcoming redevelopment. This is being considered by the Japan Sport Council and Meiji Shrine. The rights will be sold to nearby landowners, allowing them to build larger buildings. The redevelopment of the Jingu Stadium and the Chichibunomiya Rugby Stadium was first announced in April 2015.

Source: Japan Property Central (Published: 29 January 2018)

I wonder if this implies that mixed-use highrise developments will be on the sites of the Jingu Stadium and Chichinumobiya Stadium instead of any planned replacement baseball/rugby stadiums, or that such new highrises will be limited to around the vicinity of the complex they are in?

As the article says the air rights will be sold to nearby landowners to finance the stadiums. That doesn't mean the new stadiums are off, they are not selling the land.

It's only unclear how close to the stadiums nearby is. Is directly surrounding the stadium, or is it for example in a km radius. We'll see if some developments will pop up in the next couple of years.

A 13-storey, 400-unit hotel is being developed on a site to the north of the National Olympic Stadium, replacing the Jingu-Gaien Futsal Club. Also, on another site near the Olympic Stadium (to its south), Gaien House, an apartment building initially used to house foreign press during the 1964 Summer Olympics, is being replaced with a 22-storey building before the 2020 Olympics. Japan Property Central also reported on the announcement of these two new highrise buildings. Could the development of these new highrises near the National Stadium have resulted in the announcement of the air-rights sale of the Jingu Stadium?

I wonder what's the highest that could be build on a site near/next to the National Stadium and Meiji Jingu Stadium?

This tower will be demolished the coming month.


Nishi-Azabu Mitsui Building 西麻布三井ビルディング

height: 78.95m
construction year: 1988

This tower, together with the residential building right next to it stands on a large plot of land. So it's most likely going to be demolished to make room for a new tower. The size of the plot will mean that it will have enough air rights to develop a taller tower. The only drawback is the distance to the nearest Metro/Train station. Located right between Roppongi and Shibuya, it's a blank spot on the Tokyo railway map.

At first, I questioned myself why the biggest and a relatively new building on this strip seems to be under demolition. However, it seems logical when apart from a few other office buildings housing Fujifilm operations and the Venezuelan Embassy (like they can even pay the electric bill), it's mostly residential. After Novartis moved, I assume the lack of close transit demanded nowadays made it hard to find a suitable tenant. So as the odd one out, built at a time when executives cruised in with their Toyota Crowns and Nissan Cedrics, I bet it's being demolished for a "taxpayer" Times24 parking lot for area residents to park their Lexus and Mercedes-Benz rather than under the freeway. Until the time is right, hopefully after more land assembly like the rest of the lots on the block and maybe adjacent "16-ban" to the east, something will come with the redevelopment announcement as standard procedure. I'll bet it's going to be a condo tower, maybe like The Roppongi Tokyo Club Residence, or Park Court Azabujuban The Tower with a mid-rise component and open space in the back to flow with the low-rise neighborhood.

A redevelopment is being investigated for the shopping district in Nishi-Shinjuku between the station and the skyscraper district.

There's a big possibility that it will be completely transformed into a area with office towers.

At least 5-6 towers could fit in that space, eliminating the small streets and extending the east-west boulevard to Route 414. The north-south street below the one separating the two blocks north could be realigned with it or turned into a pedestrian mall altogether, and presumably said blocks would also be redeveloped. With the bus stops moved and assuming the rotary can be reworked, I want to see a grand central station square, supertall fronting where the Odakyu and/or Keio department stores currently exist, and homeless problem fixed.

It was really only a matter of time...it's amazing that area held out for as long as it did. I remember the old days when that area was "Camera Town"...I haven't been there in ages, but I imagine with the changes in shopping culture and technology that it's kind of found the same fate as Akihabara "Electric Town"...still hanging on to its identity, but not really so relevant anymore except to the die-hard old timers.

Most redevelopment outside the skyscraper district proper have been to the northwest, prioritized because fire hazards and were planned for decades. With most completed or under construction, and redevelopment also on the east side of the station, it indeed was only a matter of time.

Only a matter of time indeed. But is this a good thing? West Shinjuku is a fairly soulless place; this little area was the only interesting thing about it. I'd say a lot of the nearby office workers would be very disappointed to see this area be turned into more faceless skyscrapers; they'll have to make their way to Memory Lane or across the tracks after work for food and entertainment!

That said, I seldom ate or drank there myself, and only used that Yodobashi once to buy a business card printer template set after Air France lost all of my luggage. It's such an odd store, that one!
