The design of the tower is part of an initiative called Next Tokyo 2045 for research and developmental purposes and was made by Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates and Leslie E. Roberson Associates.
The Sky Mile Tower would be built on an archipelago of reclaimed land in Tokyo Bay. This proposed reclamation project with the Sky Mile Tower as its centerpiece is dubbed as "Next Tokyo". The building is designed to be occupied by around 55,000 people and is planned to be 1,700 m (5,577 ft) high.
Representatives from Next Tokyo believe the value of new waterfront properties in Tokyo Bay could help pay for the project's construction, should the proposal go through.
