It's dated 2010/01/08, so it's the height from before they started at the new level, in other words it's already outdated.

The last pic looks so warm, what side is this from(what is in the background?)?
Im guessing it's from the east/north, looking west/south.

For me this is the best looking (non-habitable) tower since the CN tower. I hope to visit Tokyo in 2011 and hope this will be complete by then.

What do you expect in a city of 30 million? Of course there's going to be heavy smog...It's still nothing compared to places like Athens and Mexico City, or even LA.

Anyway, this thing is looking awesome and massive already. 264m...that's already taller than any skyscraper in all of Tokyo! In fact, short of Yokohama Landmark Tower and Tokyo Tower, it's the third tallest in Japan. Won't be long now before it surpasses even the Landmark Tower!

Tokyo actually has a good record for air quality, despite its size.
Look again at the series of pics, its not smog that's dicolouring the sky, its your typical wintertime sunset (the kind you see on the clearest coldest days):



as in:




and the 'murk' stage just before/after the sun goes out


as in:




'afterglow' blue

end of days

Symmetrical, graceful, smooth, rounded, different shapes.

Why can't London build something like this?

I can now see the tower from where I live (Adachi-ku), its an amazing thing to see growing day by day. Even better, the information here is fantastic and its like zooming in on it and seeing the progress in more detail, it's surreal! I'm very lucky to work in Roppongi Hills and have Tokyo Tower in view, that is a charming structure for sure but Tokyo Sky Tree is shaping up to be a worthy successor to it.
