Most information can be found on the internet or on the information boards around the construction site, just not the weight of the steel beams because they all have different sizes.

Of course all have different sizes, but maybe You know the range of weight for main vertical steel beams? Is it secret information?

It's just that people keep asking for the weight and that information is just not available because there are simply no identical beams. It would have been a different story if the tower wouldn't change it shape along the way.


Some cool 360 degrees pictures from inside and outside the Skytree.

Really cool panorama! And also good update! Thanks, Momo1435!

It is amazing tower and very interesting for me. Probably, I will start to study Japanese language, because, I suspect, most interesting technical data are at Japanese sites

Of course, weight of steel beams decreases with tower height. But personally for me it is interesting how maximal weight steel beams were lifted by JCC-720AH tower cranes at this construction? I like Japanese tower crane, because they are very resistant to earthquake and storm. Also these cranes are very elegant from technical view point. Why I can not find these cranes in other countries? Are they very expensive in comparison with other ones? Sorry for offtop, but maybe You know people and internet sites where I can discuss such questions?

Thanks as always for the updates Momo.

I wish Tokyo would do something like that with all its canals. They're one of the city's biggest assets, yet most of them are ugly and stinky (or hidden under elevated freeways). Let's do more.

As for the Sky Tree... 東京頑張ろうよ☆

It's not because of him, the "forumers" did it to make him depart.

Back on topic... Good to see the Skytree rising well. As for the beams, they will only go smaller once the tower rises more. So that will make the upper part look smaller too, hence the weight variations.

With every update TST looks even more massive! Hard to believe there is still about 400m to go yet!
