The Nishi-Shinjuku 3-Chōme Redevelopment (西新宿三丁目西地区市街地再開発?) is a large proposed redevelopment project in Nishi-Shinjuku, Tokyo, Japan. The proposal includes a 77-story office tower, two 66-floor and one 50 floor residential towers.[2] The 77-story office tower, called East Office Tower (東オフィス棟), is set to rise 338 metres (1,109 ft) and become Japan's tallest building, taking the title away from the Yokohama Landmark Tower in Yokohama.[1][3] The office tower would also become Japan's first supertall skyscraper over 300 metres (984 ft).[4] Two identical 66-floor residential towers, called North Residential Tower (北住宅棟) and South Residential Tower (南住宅棟) will rise 245 metres (804 ft).[5][6][7][8] The third and shortest residential building, West Residential Tower (西住宅棟), will rise 190 metres (623 ft) and contain 50 residential floors.[9][10] The entire complex was slated for completion in 2010, but as of 2010, plans for the complex are still on hold for unknown reasons.[2]
