New Tokyo tower to pump 47.3 billion yen to local economy annually
(Kyodo) _ A new 610-meter-high radio and TV transmission tower to be built in Tokyo's Sumida Ward will likely pump 47.3 billion yen a year to the local economy, a think tank said Wednesday.
The tower -- higher than the 553-meter CN Tower in Toronto, Canada, so far the world's tallest structure -- is expected to draw Japanese and foreign visitors to the new attraction in Sumida Ward, according to the Dai-ichi Life Research Institute.

Even before its completion in 2011, the 50-billion yen tower will likely add a total of 95.4 billion yen in sales of goods and services during the four-year construction period that will commence in 2008, the think tank said.

"The local economy is likely to receive strong stimulus from a likely surge in the number of foreign tourists and other expected results due to the combined tourist-attracting effects of the new tower and nearby long-time tourist spots like Asakusa and Ryogoku," it said.

The think tank forecasts 3 million Japanese and foreign visitors will visit the Sumida tower a year. The 333-meter-high Tokyo Tower, located in Minato Ward, attracts 2.6 million visitors a year.

Annual revenues from admission fees, transmission fees to be paid by Japan Broadcasting Corp. and five commercial TV broadcasters, hotel accommodation, as well as other sales to be directly induced by the new tower are projected at 29.7 billion yen. ADVERTISEMENT



On top of the revenues, the tower in Sumida Ward will induce such indirect economic effects as incomes to be reaped by financial institutions and the food industry that will feed its visitors, it said.

Apart from the tower's building costs, the construction will induce secondary effects for industrial segments related to its construction, including those for manpower agencies that will mediate in dispatching construction workers and for construction material makers like steelmakers, it added.

I like it, if the "blue ufo's" are a littlebit smaller... It's so freakin big!, it takes the shape of the structure out of balance.

Are you serious? The CN Tower is a little too bland to me.

It looks elegant, but it looks "too" tall for my taste.

Looks cool, but it doesn't look like it will be counted as a skyscraper.

Looks like a hybrid of Tokyo Tower and Warsaw radio mast both in shape and hight
But I hope it won't share the fate of the latter one
