The Sky Tree utterly dominates the skyline! What's the height of the next tallest building in Tokyo?

@Ajaypp
Height of the tallest building is ~250m - it's Midtown Tower. The next tallest construction is 333m high Tokyo Tower

If tokyo had no earthquake problem, tokyo would have covered by huge skyscrapers.

The official opening is planned for Spring 2012.

The official completion date is still December 2011, they got some spill-over time for the delays.


Speaking of delays, originally the cranes would have been taken down late April. Now the planning is that it will happen the last 1/3 of May (I can't help it that the Japanese often divide the months in 3 parts).
http://www.tokyo-np.co.jp/article/to...202000023.html

The cranes will be dismantled 1 by 1 clockwise starting at the North crane, that is one of the 2 tall cranes. The last crane will be taken down by a small mobile crane that itself can be taken down with the elevator. The normal procedure for tower cranes on tall buildings/towers.


Not many pictures on all the blogs the last couple of days due to the bad weather in Tokyo.

"Sweet Momo" is what somebody said a while back along with a bunch of people, after the tsunami, saying "Momo, I hope you're all right" or "my prayers are for you Momo"
Fags.

It's a guy in the Netherlands.

yangkhm didn't say that Momo took the pics. He just emphasized that he likes the pics.

@yangkhm: Why did you repost all the pictures that are just TWO posts above yours? I'll never get it, why ppl are doing that!
