I decided to search for the tower on 2channel and I found 1 recent article that they will start constructing the tower in the summer of 2008.

New Tokyo Tower
Downtown building Manhattanize Accordingly, in order to prevent interference by the construction of digital terrestrial broadcasting for the radio tower.
Stay in Tokyo and other commercial broadcasters 6, requested in the form of Tobu Railway Co., a subsidiary of the group "New Tokyo Tower, Inc."
Business entities and next summer start building, as the 23 Heisei year scheduled for completion.
Meanwhile, the Tokyo Tower (about 333 meters) to operate a radio tower Japan, Ltd. (Minato-ku, Tokyo),
Antenna 80 to 100 meters high on the ground to respond to and digitized voice.

And this diagram might also be interesting, from a different source.

Not bad, but i always say Tokyo missed the perfect chance to develop a new breed of tower. At least, the height is impressive..

It's not a building. Doesn't Tokyo need any more office rooms?
