According to preliminary calculations, its construction the company will spend about $ 5.5 billion and has 185,000 cubic metres of wooden building materials.

The Skyscraper height of 350 meters will be the first 70-storey wooden building. Now the maximum height of wooden houses in Japan do not exceed seven floors, so the project is unique in its kind.
