To prevent the reduction of the population in center of Osaka City, many measures had been taken aiming to promote building esidences. As a result, many super high-rise apartment complexes were built. However, it is a question whether these buildings are eally used as residences. In this study, to investigate this, basal data including the location trend and the building forms of 103 uper high-rise apartment complexes in 6 wards of Osaka downtown areas were collected and organized. We found that almost half the of super high-rise apartment complexes were built at the formerly public lots or in downtown, where business buildings of themajor companies representing Osaka had been previously located. These phenomena may reflect the changes of business community in Osaka Further, it is of note that a rate of super high-rise apartment complex actually used for residence was very low in the redeveloped area.
