Great to see the antenna rising! I will be in Tokyo in 100 days - I hope it will have reached the final height by then!

The day has finally come!

One thing I really like about the design of TST is that the spire is very thick and thus quite visible from afar. Unlike other spires that fade with the distance.

It was great that it was a tallest building in the world. And I liked a picture it look amazing and it has a great height. And I searched that it main purpose is broadcasting for radio and television. And currently its construction is going on and it will be completed in December 2011 and it will be open for public in spring 2012.

This so cool the way towers are being built today is much more unique compared to the concrete blocks stacked on top of each other that towers of the past reflected.

Aesthetically this tower is so well balanced and solid.

The glass on the first observation pod looks really nice, I am pleasantly suprised

BTW there is a thread here for the office tower but no one posts in it

YES! I've been trolling this thread for the past year, and this is moment I've been waiting for.

The existing Tokyo Tower pales in comparison to this monster!

The top now has it's own obstruction light as it will grow higher then the tower cranes.

12/18 blog update #1

We get to see straight away why the spire isn't hoisted up in 1 go and why the tower is actually being built. The installation of the Digital TV transmitting equipment.

12/19 blog update

I was about to post some pictures taken from a helicopter that I saw on 1 of the regular Sky Tree blogs, but then I spotted tommyzion's name in the text. So expect some birds eye view pictures from him any time soon.

Here are some other pictures instead, first some merchandise pictures.

And some tower pictures.
