Shibuya's tallest skyscraper to open on Nov. 1

The crowded skyline of one of Tokyo's most famous neighborhoods has a new addition. The Shibuya Scramble Square building is the area's tallest skyscraper and is set to offer visitors hundreds of new shopping and dining options.

The 230-meter structure, which spans 47 stories, will open Friday next week. Sixteen floors will be devoted to commercial space, housing about 200 stores.

The rest of the building will mostly be office space, largely rented out to tech companies.

Visitors can head up to an open-air observation deck to enjoy a view of the iconic Shibuya scramble crossing.

The building also includes a number of warehouses stocked with food and water for earthquakes. There are enough supplies to last 2,000 people three days.
