TOKYO (AP) -- While sky- jestically near the parliament 1 scrapers begin to change its, building, is Tokyo's first real skyscraper, the 36-story Kasu- migaseki Building. It will be completed in March. The building will measure 482 feet, a miniscraper beside the Empire State Bui'ding, but a concrete monument in a city rocked regularly by earthquakes. For decades, a safety law limited buildings to a height of 102 feet. The law was scrapped in Like the skyscrapers, under- i 963 w jth the development of ground development resulted new building techniques, and from soaring real estate prices. A square meter of choice land fronting the Ginza--Tokyo's mam street--costs $3,200. But Tokyoites who work underground boast of other advantages: there is no traffic, and huge ventilators keep them free of smog. Subterranean development in Tokyo--the world's most populous city--11 million--began after World War II. But it was not I until recently that it gained pop- i ularity. i Officials estimate that, added together, these subterranean colonies now cover 43 square miles under this 784-square-mile megalopolis. There are subterranean colo- r.ies under virtually every large department store, business dis- t-ict and busy thoroughfare. Many are connected by wide, airy corridors, which serve, in winter and rainy seasons, as popular escapes for strollers. Others are connected by subways. Above street level, rising ma- Japanese contractors began building taller structures. By the end of 1968, Tokyo is expected to have its second skyscraper: the 486-foot World Trade Center which will be one story higher than the Kasumiga- seki Building. Wi h the taller buildings have come complaints. In the eastern sector of Tokyo, where several tall structures have been erected, residents asked that they be removed because they interfere with television reception.
