Looks like they removed the blue stuff from the second pod's outer walkway. Any close-ups?

There will be no antenna on those missing places? And how was Sky Tree behaviour with today's earthquake?

my guess is that there will be no antennas in those areas , the tower is designed to withstand big earthquakes

I'm pretty sure the antennas from that top empty section are just being delivered late.

Just a couple of questions. I've noticed that the covering we're seeing on the lower portions of the spire that have no antenna are generally put in place after the workers have completed their work in that particular area and I'm assuming that they're put there as a safety precaution to prevent workers below from being struck by a falling object but the renders of the Sky Tree appear to have antenna going from the top to the bottom of the spire. Since the very bottom areas don't appear to have any antennas at all and it's very close to being topped out does this mean that it's going to look different than the renders or that these missing antennas will be put in place at a later date?

Tokyo did not just build this thing out of nowhere for nothing. They've got some other supertall ideas up their sleeve. I know they had trouble with reception earlier, but look at how tiny those buildings around it are compared to it! This is more than they needed for what they have now; they are planning for the future.

Look at thopse last few pictures above my post, that thing is out of this world with the rest of the skyline. There is no skyline after that thing. It makes those other buildings look like they're 5 stories tall.
