This tower should now officially be under construction.

Some pictures from late last June already showed activity, it looks like some work making facade mock-ups.

It doesn't help that the tower on the neighboring block looks like it's part of this tower in the render.

And they used a pretty extreme angle that made the tower on the right of the render very small. But that tower has almost exactly the same dimensions as this new tower. It's the Fukoku Mutual Life Insurance Co. Building 富国生命本社ビル that is also 120m tall. The new tower will be a bit wider, not that much.

I like the location. This building needed to be taller.

I wonder how much trouble they'll have finding tenants, considering JX is moving back to the Marunouchi/Otemachi area.

The tower has started to grow, but it won't grow as tall as originally planned. An update of the construction sign shows that instead of 120m the tower will now be 115.91m tall.
