Yeah looks like they will have to zoom out or change the camera location in the next couple of weeks to keep the whole of the tower in view. It's already a fantastic addition to the Tokyo skyline

It won't be a big problem, these pictures are taken from a residential tower in Funabori, Edogawa-ku, 5.5 km from the Sky Tree. It's just a matter of using a bit less zoom. We are actually blessed that there are people in Japan with killer zoom lenses that want to take a daily picture of the tower from this distance instead of Paparazzi-ing Japanese celebrities.

So they are using super zoom instead of being geographically close, I see

I wish I was Tokyo right to take this kind op pictures. But what I can do is post some pictures that the original photographer has taken earlier this year.

Wow, that highrise is going up quickly!

they were just starting the core for 3 more levels on the 7th, and now on the 10th, they have finished quite a lot of the 3 levels, so it would be at least 1 floor each 2 days, and it is a really strong building too!

I can understand the need for strong buildings, it is nearly a week since the 7.1 magnitude earthquake hit here in Christchurch.

Tokyo Sky Tree is awesome, and I can't wait for the next viewing platform to be built!

The official height on the Sky Tree website is 448m, but it has already grown to around 455m.

And that height is another height record for Japan, the tallest structure ever in Japan. That was the 455m tall Omega Tower on the island Tsushima between Japan and Korea (オメガ塔(対馬オメガ局)), a wire supported pylon that was used as an antenna for the OMEGA Navigation System. It stood from 1975 until 2000 when it was dismantled, because it wasn't needed any more because of satellite navigation.

And today they actually broke it, they started installing the steel beams of the outside frame and those are taller then the latest parts for the core.
