A keen observation! I wonder if that had any influence (subliminal?) on the choice for the tower's name?

This morning there was a good view, not.

From the other side and a bit closer by it was still visible.

It stopped the construction and it delayed the crane jump, but luckily they are ahead of the schedule so it's not really a problem.

But I hope it doesn't do too much damage.

Typhoon bears down on Japan's main islands

TOKYO, Oct 7 (Reuters) - A powerful typhoon approached Japan's main islands on Wednesday, threatening the heavily populated country's industrial centres with torrential rain and strong winds.

Typhoon Melor may be the most powerful storm to hit Japan's main islands in more than 10 years if it makes landfall, the Meteorological Agency said.

Television showed waves pounding the shores of Japan's small southern islands as the typhoon moved north-northeast towards the the main island of Honshu.

The eye of the storm was 250 km (155 miles) south of Tanegashima, 1000 km southwest of Tokyo and home to Japan's rocket launch pad, at 10:00 JST (0000 GMT), according to the Meteorological Agency. It could make landfall in central Japan west of Tokyo on Thursday.

Up to 400 mm of rain is forecast over the next 24 hours in the Tokai region, which includes the industrial centre of Nagoya, the agency said, also warning of high winds, gales and flooding across southern Japan.

Toyota Motor Corp (7203.T) may not open its plants in the Nagoya area on Thursday due to the typhoon.

"We haven't decided whether to do daytime shifts tomorrow," a Toyota spokeswoman said.

An official at Nippon Oil's (5001.T) Oita refinery on the southern island of Kyushu said it was raining heavily but the typhoon had not affected the refinery's operations or oil shipments.

Nansei Sekiyu KK's refinery in Okinawa said high seas were delaying some ships.

Melor, which had earlier been classed as a Category 5 Super Typhoon, is now a Category 1, according to storm tracking website Tropical Storm Risk. A Category 1 storm can bring winds of up to 153 km an hour.

Television news warned of similarities to a deadly 2004 typhoon at the same time of year that killed 95 people, brought transport to a halt and disrupted production.

An official at Tokyo's city government offices said no additional measures were being taken to deal with the typhoon. An average of about three such storms hit Japan each year, although there were none last year. (Reporting by Isabel Reynolds; Editing by Hugh Lawson)

Their schedule was probably designed with such events in mind, which is why they've been ahead so far.

Some storm damage on the tower, although nothing major just some torn plastic seal that covered the scaffolding.

Central Tokyo has its fair share of very modern buildings, but your statement probably applies better to the suburbs which are dense enough to be "urban" by any measure but bland enough to be suburban.

160 meter

It will be completed together with the Tokyo Sky Tree in December 2011, and if the info on Obayashi's website is correct it will go up after the summer of 2010.
