Tokyo Opera City Tower is a skyscraper located in Shinjuku. Completed in 1996, it stands 234 metres high and has 54 floors; it is the third-tallest building in Shinjuku and seventh-tallest in Tokyo. The closest train station to Opera City is Hatsudai. The building houses the New National Theater in its lower levels. The fifth through fifty-second floors are devoted to office space. The building is an octagon with four sides shorter then the others. Those sides are faced with glass, while the main sides have a white facade with uniform rows and columns of small windows, like several other buildings in the area. The effect is to make the white sides look like they've pulled back or peeled away from the main building revealing the glass corners underneath. The singularity of the glass facades make them seem like a uniform shaft from the ground into the sky, emphasizing the sense of height.
