But anyway, this tower will probably spur redevelopment projects nearby as Oshiage area is not bad location-wise.
I have seen picutres of wooden shacks on rivers near Tokyo where so-called burakudin live. They looked pretty much like slums...

I see those wooden houses like a slum, but it is not a slum.
In Tokyo, income is low, but is high in the developed nation.

Tokyo Tower and Sapporo Tower were designed by the same architect.

Probably "wooden shanty shacks" means something like this:

Japanese cities are said to nearly completely lack urban planning and look very chaotic, and that is exactly true. One of the reasons is because people are not interested in spending money to make their city "look good". Probably the same applies to lack of green space because there is not enough demand either. Among Japanese people, the most common perception of "parks" is "children's playground" rather than "place to relax / take a break".

The blog is incorrect.
The density is high in the Japanese city, but the house is large and clean.

Is there an updated expected completion date? I'm hoping it will be finished in the next year or so

Ha I guess so, I just figured it would be a speedy construction because it's basically all steel framing

They look like shanty towns because the japanese houses usually does not have front gardens or large backyards, due to price of the land that make them space savers. The houses usually have two or three meters gap betwen each other in all sides and no much more.

To make it worst, the streets are too tight and most of them do not have sidewalks.

There are no parks because the land is too valuable. Tokyo once had the most expensive real estate; it's still not cheap either. Why turn valuable land into parks when you can sell it for tens of millions of dollars?

I looks so boring and uninspiring. Just a bigger version of the Tokyo Tower.

The design of Tokyo Sky Tree is a hobby of the governors of Tokyo.
