Great tower! I can't wait for the antenna!
But I have a question - At which height does the second observation pod start? I think 470 m? Is that correct? And at which height is the roof of this observation pod?

It's not a teenager chat so be serious.

I don't like this kind of towers. Can I write my opinion here or I need to ask your permission?

Try tu build a skyscraper I like and I'll write that I love it.

Am I only person here don't like Tokyo Sky Tree cladding? It looks cheap and too 70's. I like the tower itself but they could come up with shining blue glass cladding to make it stand out. Tokyo deserves better than this.

No, I think there's some guy in Ohio who doesn't like it either but the rest of us all like it.
Seriously though, I guess it's just a matter of personal taste. I like everything about the Sky Tree and I've been watching this thread more than any other. The skill to design and construct something this complex is a tribute to Japanese know how.

As a future user of the obeservation function of the tower I would like to see the clearest glass as possible, so I'm not complaining. Even though other more exiting glass would have indeed been better for the looks of the tower.

Just because it doesn't have an "artistic" structure like GZ Tower doesn't mean this one isn't good. It looks fine. It sure beats the hell out of Tokyo's shameful Eiffel Tower clone.
