They showed a 2hour long show all about the Sky Tree on J TV tonight. Only caught last 30 mins but it was recent footage up to the 470m mark - amazing footage. Hopefully there will be some YouTube clips appearing soon.

They (Sky Tree building company) mentioned how some members of the public called them to remark how the tower's 'shape' - from tri-angle to circle - seemed strange and if they had noticed about that?!

Also the 2nd pod will begin construction in November. Today it looked amazing - its almost there, to the base of the antenna.

Can anyone confirm that the spire and antenna are finished inside and ready to rise?

This is how far the construction should be in October.



The spire is red with the arrow up, already on it's way up. If they are working on schedule this should confirm it.

I think castermaild posted it in the JP forum. Even if it's not the same one, the one he posted in JP forum is still interesting

It was a beautiful day for a visit to the Sky Tree.

I will be in Tokyo at the end of March 2011 - can anyone tell me if the tower will be mostly "externally complete" by then? Estimated height around that time? Thanks. . .

But this is already up, because later in the morning up in the clouds the tower grew again to an estimated 482m.
