Tokyo is outdated??? Seems to me you haven't been to the most vibrant city in the planet. Tokyo may not have all the supertalls but the the city is flowing with wonderful architectures around. More than the structures, it's the extraordinary life that this city has that makes it as one of the world's capital cities. And the Tokyo Sky Tree is a new shining symbol of that

I like this tower very much! It almost looks like those building you see in SF movies!

And I don't understand people who say that Tokyo hasn't got many tall buildings, OK Tokyo hasn't got enormous buildings, but there are many buildings over 200m in Tokyo. Most European cities can't compete with that.

Are you high? Aesthetics aside, Tokyo is the most advanced city on the planet.

Your location tells me all I need to know.

Oh **** it, I'm going to reply to your untrue bs...

"Japan's economy will continue to decrease"

I don't what figures you have seen, but the economy has grown almost every year the last 20 years. It's doesn't grow as fast and steady as the up and coming nations in the rest of Asia. But that's understandable because the Japanese economy is already at such a level that it can be 3rd biggest economy in the world with 127m people. Compare that with the 300m for the USA or the 1b for China.

"What have Tokyo achieved in upgrading infra-structure the latest 10 years compared to other Asian cities?"
Compared to other Asian cities Tokyo already has an outstanding infrastructure, that fast growing cities are doing more right now is just catching up.

But since you don't seem to know everything, here are some examples of new infrastructure:

New Metro lines:
Toei Ōedo Line (2000)
Tokyo Metro Fukutoshin Line (2008)

New Train lines:

Tsukuba Express (2005)
Nippori-Toneri Liner (2008)
Keisei Narita Airport Line (2010)
and many upgrades

in the planning:
Chuo Maglev
Narita-Haneda connection line
...

Station developments:
New Shibuya Station
Shinjuku station south entrance
Tokyo Station Restoration

New roads:
Central Circular Route (Shuto Expressway)

Airport developments:
New runways on Narita and Haneda
Haneda International Terminal

Plus the ongoing construction of many new office and residential buildings.

Tokyo is still going strong.

Why the generalization?

Obviously, this is an individual case. Just ignore or ban.

I lived in Tokyo in 2008.

^I thank for an earthquake donation of Chinese.
There's no need to wish bad things to happen to others.

^Your location tells me all I need to know.
Judging the Chinese people? It's OT but I'm not Chinese.

^Tokyo is still going strong.
Tsk, tsk, you can say whatever you want, but you're still not an economist. The economy of Japan is predicted to decrease more and more. It it dependable on many reasons, but their only savior would be to "import" more foreign workers (which they won't because of their alien policies and Japanese pride). And woah, touché, you mentioned the construction of 2 metro lines during 1 decade, I'm reeeeeally impressed. That compared to how many metro-lines Shanghai constructed during 1 year just for the Expo is piteous.

Of course I know that Japan already has an well-built infra-structure, and that they're doing an amazing job in keeping their country clean, fresh and "good as new" as I would say it. I guess the discussion has went a little bit too far and people have jumped to conclusions way too fast as always (!). I just wanted to point out the fact that Tokyo is a futurecity in the 90's, not the 2010's.

Most European cities can't compete with that.
Folks, I'm not comparing the gluey infra-structure in European countries with Asia. That's two completely different systems. I was comparing Japan to the rest of Asia. And the reason why European countries arn't upgrading their infra-structure so much is a completely different reason than the Japanese. Japan won't upgrade because they feel that they dont need it, people who don't frequenly travel around in Asia wouldn't notice that its outdated. Europe won't upgrade because they are butthurt of their old buildings.

And lastly, if you ban new members this fast because they have opinions, I must say you are an incredibly butthurt forum as well. Or you are just Japanese.

You fail to see that Tokyo is still doing much better then Japan as a whole on many fronts.

btw,

The rules for this section have been "no politics" and no "City vs City". Comparing Tokyo to other cities without any relevance to this project is not allowed based on these rules. You are lucky that you are doing it in this thread because this one is problem free. If you had started this kind of discussion in some other threads you would've already been banned.

That's a good conceptual video of the Sky tree. Regarding the Tsunami quake and Fukushima nuclear plant disasters my sincere heart goes to the Japanese people.And, I hope they find the quickest solutions to the radioactive issue.

Wow look how the activity here just died as excitement over two major things that coincidentally happened at once have died down. tsunami and top out.

Nothing more to say here. To cantilever the excitement there needs to be placed afore or after a lull. Here, after.

They did seem to be in a major hurry to top this out after the quake. I wonder if that was so that they could get the mass dampers working properly in the event of any big aftershocks???

Maybe if I just continue to post daily picture updates again the activity will get up again. Somehow I didn't come round to do it the last few days.

The T/O was planned btw, it was not done much quicker then originally planned. But with all the after shocks it's better to have it at it's final height. Probably not so much for the mass dampers that should have been working normally since they were installed. But with the spire in it's final position it could be fully attached to the tower, now the spire can't damage the inner core of the tower by swaying too much anymore. There were cushions between the core and the spire that would prevent the spire hitting the core, but if the quake is too big it would still be not enough to prevent damage.

Love the cloudy/rainy/hazy pictures, never see to many of those of any buiding, but it really gives it the true skyscraper look.

Sweet Momo, thanks for your posts! Yes seems like was a bit of a dash there - has been 'naked' on that portion of the antenna ever since but hopefully soon it wil be kitted out.

Easy to forget the amount of work happening inside and outside the tower too.. a huge project.
