On 13 February, 2003, the Mori Group increased the building’s height to 492 m and 101 stories from the initial plans for a 460 m, 94-story building. The new building will use the foundation of the original design. The building construction resumed on 16 November 2003. On17, July, 2008, after 10 years’ work, the building was finally finished and opened to the public.
