Elements of the 'sky walk' or 'air corridor' or 'glass walkway' or ... ?! are being put in place - looks amazing - can't wait for the updates ..

It seems this was constructed this morning - they are working so fast and yet have another 12 months to run..

In Japanese it's called the 空中回廊, Kuuchuu Kairou, Sky Corridor.


And it's like a gift for the Sky Tree fans that they started doing this on a Saturday, there are plenty of pictures of the parts being installed.

Great stuff Momo, thanks for the clarification and great pics.

What it must be like to be perched out in that skeletal bubble while its being fixed to the main structure

Whoah, they're building it so fast! I'm planning on flying to Tokyo in the next summer and despite that I won't be able to go up there (unfortunately) I still long to see this great structure in all its glory.

News update on the spire:
http://www.nikkei.com/news/headline/...E29191E2E2E2E2

The spire is currently being hoisted up inside of the core. The top is currently at 450m, about the same height as the 2nd pod. The total length of the spire is 240m, the diameter is approximately 10m and it weighs about 3,000 ton in total. The speed that they are hoisting it up with inside of the core is 3m per hour, 25m per day.

With such a heavy lift it's essential that the tension on the wire stays the same during the lifting, the system that is used automatically adjust to even the smallest variations in tension. Another problem is the chance of an earthquake during lifting. To prevent damage on the spire and the inside of the core they have wrapped special cushions around the spire.

The planning is still that the spire will start to come out from the tower from December and onwards. Don't except the same speed as it has now inside of the core. They will need to install the antenna equipment as it come out of the spire and top of that they have to take the weather conditions into account. It probably won't shoot to the top in 5 days if it goes on with the same speed as it does now.


ps.

The article also mentions that until now there haven't been any major accidents during the construction of the Sky Tree, and that it will top priority to not loose focus during the final stages of the construction top keep to keep it accident free.

In the last picture you see how much space there still is between the Sky Corridor and the crane.

Yesterday? Still 30th here The earthquake, although strong - 6.9, was very far away from Tokyo. Central Tokyo measured just 2 although the movements lasted 30 secs according to various reports. Was outside at the time so didn't notice anything. Am sure the TST swayed but it was very weak tremor, luckily.

It should be coping right now, since it got 2 Tuned Mass Dampers on the top of the tower.

It's now also officially pass the 500m on December 1st.
http://www.rising-east.jp/dl/pdf/20101130.pdf





I think tomorrow the spire will touch the top of the spire with the TMDs tomorrow, then the thing on top for the height will actually count. The height will jump from 497m to 511m in one go.

The target date for topping out is still Spring 2011, no specific date has been given yet.

More info on the tuned mass dampers in Japanese:

The tower from above a couple of days ago.

What I found surprising is just how large the structure is that contains the tuned mass dampers. The spire itself is obviously going to have to be very large and sturdy to support all of that weight. It won't be anything like other spires we've seen that just look like glorified flag poles. I can't wait to see it rise.

The engineering is incredible - but in terms of design I still don't like it. The steel looks too functional without the elegance of other tubular steel outer towers. Take for example the 600/610m recently completed and named Canton tower in China with it's narrower mid section and sweeping/twisted design.
