Parks Tower (パークスタワー) is a 30- floor-and-149- meter high skyscraper located in the Namba Parks complex in the Namba district, Naniwa-ku, Osaka, Japan.[1]

It was designed by Nikken Sekkei Ltd., and constructed by Takenaka Corporation in 2003. The building later earned the nickname "PS3 Building" in 2010 as it bore a striking resemblance to the original PlayStation 3 console.[2]
