TOKYO -- Japan's capital is set to lay claim to the country's tallest building in 2023, when developer Mori Building aims to complete a 330-meter tower as part of a major redevelopment.

The 64-story main tower of the 580 billion yen ($5.45 billion) project unveiled Thursday -- the company's costliest to date -- would beat out Osaka's 300-meter Abeno Harukas skyscraper. It will contain a mix of office and residential space.
