One of Shinjuku's more visible skyscrapers saves its design excitement for the top. The main shaft of the building is the reflective glass curtain wall and corner cut-outs you'd expect from a modern office building. The visually interesting part is the top where several floors are capped with a roof that slopes back from the edges of the building. From above it looks something like a folded piece of paper. Protruding from the seam is a round column supporting a helipad.
