Awesome! The lighting looks great already and I,ll bet the finished light sceme will be stunning. Judging from the photo close to ST with a cameraman on a ladder, standing next to the tower looking up its full height would be incredible!

The schedule for the last 3 months of the year was put up on the information boards around the Sky Tree today. And it gives all the information that we need to know about the start of the 2nd observation pod and the spire.





# Steel tower frame.

It will reach it's highest point of 495m this month, it will be structurally complete at the end of the month.

# 2nd Observation Pod

Work on the 2nd pod will start at the end of this month, it will continue throughout November to be structurally finished in the 1st weeks of December.

# Spire

The spire is U/C inside the core right now, it will be jacked up towards the top. It will surpass the 495m roof of the tower half December after the 2nd pod is finished.

# Height at the end of the year.

This is something that isn't mentioned, this means that we don't know how fast the spire will grow. The only thing we know is that the in the original planning it should be 634m in the spring of 2011.

~~~~~~~~


Let's add some pictures from the official blog from Obayashi, the main contractor of the Sky Tree.

Since it's (officially) 17 meters left to the top of the structure, then I would guess on 2 levels of segments to be added until it's topped out.
Can't wait for it

2 levels, then they add two small cranes to the roof. Then the two extremely tall tower cranes go down to make room for pod 2 construction. The question is, can they start jacking the spire at the same time the two small cranes are in operation at the roof? I say no.

Tokyo Sky Tree to be illuminated for 3 hrs next Wed.
Quote:
TOKYO, Oct. 6 (AP) - (Kyodo)—The Tokyo Sky Tree tower, the tallest building in Japan which is under construction in central Tokyo, will be illuminated for about three hours on the night of Oct. 13, the first and the only light-up event before its scheduled completion in the spring of 2012.
The light up of the new communications tower in Tokyo's Sumida Ward, which is 478 meters high as of Saturday, will be held from around 6:30 p.m.

The event is designed to test the performance of 50 light-emitting diode bulbs to be installed at the ground, 160-meter and 335-meter levels of the tower. The bulbs are made by Panasonic Electric Works Co.

The tower will be lit up in two colors -- light blue to depict the "Edo spirit" and purple to symbolize "miyabi," one of the traditional Japanese aesthetic ideals.

After the tower is completed, it will be illuminated in each color every other day using 2,000 LED bulbs.

"I want to see the illuminated tower," said Masao Kobayashi, a 68- year-old who manages a stamp company near the tower. "It will be a different night view from before. I think our town will be even more attractive."

Tower operator Tobu Tower Sky Tree Co. said, "The illumination is not intended to be viewed but given that visitors are expected on the day, we want to make sure we take sufficient precautions for their safety."

The illumination will be postponed to the following day in case of bad weather.

The Tokyo Sky Tree, set to be the world's tallest stand-alone communications tower at 634 meters when completed, will be used mainly for terrestrial digital broadcasting. It surpassed Tokyo Tower, a 333- meter communications tower in Minato Ward, as Japan's tallest building in March.
