Yes new core parts, that should make the tower higher then 248.1m, the height of the Midtown Tower, Tokyo's highest skyscraper (not counting the antenna of the NTT Docomo building in Yoyogi). The next target should be the 296m of the Yokohama Landmark Tower, Japans highest skyscraper and after that the 333m of the Tokyo tower.

...

What weight is of this core part?


Great pictures update to Tokyo Sky Tree construction history

The next target should be the 272m of the NTT Docomo Yoyogi Building antenna, then the two you said.

This is a view of SkyTree from the Rainbow Bridge, well it's not that new (picture taken 12/19) but I never saw any pics from this angle, so here it is!

^ That will be a really sweet location to take a picture of the Sky Tree.

I wonder if they had that in mind when they were discussing the location of it, I mean that the Rainbow Bridge is a pretty famous "tourist" location, and seeing the Sky Tree there would make the people really notice it and go there as well...

Looks like the tower cross-section has nearly completed the transition from triangular to circular.

It's kinda scary, maybe intimidating... I hope the tower bring new buildings than those residential boxes with zillion apartments.

254m

From the Daily Yomiuri Website.

And only 3 days of work before the builders get their well deserved New Years Holiday.

I wonder if the 254m is the end of the year total or that they still find a new part for the next level to put up ont the tower before Thursday.

Straight yes. X-mas is Christian thing.

And there are Oseibo (end-of-year gift between relatively rich people, the whole thing probably started by Matsuzakaya or Mitsukoshi) and Otoshidama (new year gift, nearly always some cash to kids from parents/grandpa)

And shotatsu yasumi (new year holidays) is Jan1-3. This is the time people eat rice cakes (omochi) and every year, nationwide NHK broadcasts how many choked themselves eating omochi
