You mean the 2nd pod? If that's the case, that'll be one hell of a fast paced construction, meaning the top-out is possible piror to end of the year. My estimate is that the 2nd pod might be completed by the end of the year.

That's true, the expected completion date for construction is december 2011....I guess the pods will take awhile to build. Well hopefully the first pod is completed by May/June

The tower body should even be finished this winter, then it will take a year to jack up the spire from inside the core and finish all the podium buildings including the 160m high tower. My guess is that they finish the 1st pod early/mid summer and than it's a race to the 2nd pod, that will be finished this autumn. The last bit of the tower-body up to the roof will then be easy, when that's done we will just see the spire come up slowly out of the tower.

Usually observation pods takes time to construct like urban highrises, but when I was thinking of this one I'm not quite sure of the complexity of its interiors for each pod.

オオゥ
ザッツビューティフルピクチャ~!
イメージ画像よりもダーティーで武骨な感じがするね。
東京タワーより優雅に感じられるがあのCGはもっと改善すべきだと思う。

i felt this is more elegantly than Tokyo Tower.
However, this is more roughness and dirty than the completion forecast picture.
The CG should be improved more because the CG do not have the atmosphere.
あ~訳めんどくせぇ~

I think that Tokyo Tower will have been icon until the 30 years next
when the generation is disapperd.
The Japanese image high economic growth after the war is too strong.

Strong winds but cranes are operating

Hi all,

This morning is very windy in Tokyo. Winds are 10 m/s gusting 16.. yet I can see the cranes are in operation. I thought the max wind condition was 10 m/s for the cranes to operate in.

Great updates and vids everyone.. thank you!

EDIT : Think I may have been mistaken about that - the cranes were not upright, which I thought was position for strong winds, however - didn't see any movement from them most of the day. Would have been interesting day on top of the tower!
