The gorundbraking was on 14 July 2008 and the foundation was completed on 6 December 2008, the above ground construction work is indeed already going on for almost a year.

Looks like they are removing the "inside" blue netting at the bottom, now we can begin to see what it will really look like.

I don't think so, not yet at least. That section without the netting were hidden behind the scaffolding that were surrounding the bottom of the tower which recently got removed.

But yeah it give a pretty good teaser on how awesome this tower will look when it's done.

(I've had to register anew, it's been long since I've posted here)

I spotted some recent context photo requests for TST, don't tell me you haven't seen this webcam where you can track the building progress live.

I've been checking this one almost on a daily basis ever since my return from Tokyo last April. It's awesome because you can literally see TST grow. I might've developed a little crush here, so be warned as you all are likely to do so as well :-)

Counting from below, choose the second of the six available camera angles, or if you read Japanese, it's the Azuma bridge angle. (To the right of TST you're seeing the Asahi buildings by Nikken Sekkei and Starck.)

This tower is rising faster than bread dough. It'll be a lovely addition to Tokyo.

Dayum, I was there in October (last weekend) and it seems to have grown another 25ms at least :o Or maybe they've just taken more of the 'wrap' off from the top, maybe. Siiigh, I really miss Tokyo

I'd post my pics of the tower but I guess they're a bit dated now. Plus I don't think any of them are really good. It's definitly quite hard to photograph up close, but we didn't really venture very far, just walked around the site. Maybe next time I'll give myself more time to explore and find some good shots. Should be taller by then too, heh :p

Kudos to Momo1435 for this incredible updates....This is truly a thread that makes my day!!

You have to give credit to the Japanese: All those netting, scaffolding, protecting equipment, such precision and yet unprecedented speed! Ok it's a tower without floors, but they sure haven't lost their edge!!

Until I see a similar tower built in another country, I'm withholding judgment on the speed being a japanese phenomenon. I mean, we really don't have a reference speed. That said, it's definitely going up faster than typical structures.

I hadn't noticed it yet but since a few days the tower has the famous red obstruction lights on the tower and not just on the tower cranes anymore.

Thanks, I think its the first time I get a good view of its position within Tokyo, so I can now anticipate its impact in the cityscape better.
