Somehow I can't read this blog in a normal way anyway, but thanks to the internets...

Work continues on Monday 2010/01/04, starting straight away on the new January target of 290m.

With this speed they could already reach the 333m (Tokyo Tower) early March, unless they slow down to start on the 1st viewing platform.

The structural engineering behind this tower is quite interesting. For example, whilst the base of the tower has a structure similar to a "tripod", from a height of about 350m and above, the tower's cross sectional structure is cylindrical to better withstand strong winds.

The tower also includes seismic engineering techniques, namely the central shaft made of reinforced concrete, to reinforce the tower from vertically and horizontally traveling seismic waves caused from earthquake activity.

well you know what they say, it takes everyone else 1 years planning and 9 years building, but the Japanese do it 9 years planning and 1 year's building...

Every now and then I find a photo blog with a photo series that deserves it's own post.

This will be the most impressive tower ever built.. are there any other towers approved or planned which will be taller (not skyscrapers just tower)?

When will the building next to it be completed?

Tokyo really needed a building of this height, it sure has a lot of landmarks, and sure this will one great addition, but still it will take time to overtake Tokyo Tower from people's minds!
