I feel like this thing needs one more spire at the top that comes to a point--at some point. That or a large golf ball. Just feels incomplete to me is all I am saying.

Digital Terrestrial Broadcasting and the Role of the New Tower

In July 2011, the current analog broadcasting will end and a complete transition made to digital broadcasting.
Five commercial stations and NHK took this as a turning point to advance preparations towards digital broadcasting from a TV tower with a height of around 600m and decided on the Sumida/Taito area as the site for construction of the tower. In addition, for "one-segment broadcasting (one-seg)," a digital broadcasting service for mobile devices that was launched in April 2006, it is ideal to have transmissions from a height that is not very vulnerable to the forest of super high-rise buildings that stand at heights of around 200m in downtown Tokyo. Expectations are also on the tower to serve the role of a tower equipped with disaster prevention features.

Birth of a Town with a Tower

At the foot of the new tower will be a "town with a tower" spans about 400m from east to west, connecting Oshiage Station and Narihirabashi Station, and encompassing an area of about 3.69ha. A networking plaza leading from Oshiage Station to the tower lobby on level four of the facility, three plazas in front of the station and along Kitajukken River, and Shinsui Park will form a community environment where visitors and nearby residents will gather.

Location

Located about 1km east of Asakusa - a town filled with the atmosphere of a shitamachi (the traditional name for the area of Tokyo that extends from Taito, Chiyoda and Chuo Wards east of the Sumida River where many merchants, craftsmen, etc. reside) - and about 2km northeast of Ryogoku - a town famous for sumo wrestling. The new tower stands in a major traditional international tourism zone of Japan.

Development Schedule

Fiscal 2006: Basic design
Fiscal 2007~8: Execution design
July 2008: Start of construction
December 2011: (Scheduled) Construction completion
Spring 2012: (Scheduled) Grand opening

I can't help myself about the spire/antenna of the Skytree. It just looks odd.
Instead of being broad on top, it should be broad on the base.

Perhaps they should have build it just the other way around.

May I ask your reasoning for that?

Even Burj Khalifa, tallest structure/building in the world barely gets noticed here. What makes you think Tokyo Sky Tree would? :p

Sadly enough, lots of people in the U.S. Are oblivious to the new world trade center. Some still think esb is the worlds tallest, it's pretty sad. Nobody pays attention to world development like they should.

Some people just don't care who hast the longest dong. I can perfectly understand them.
But it's indeed sad to see loads of people with an overall limited horizon claiming things they have no idea of.


Back to the topic - is the antenna of the Sky Tree finished for now? As I stated, it really looks odd this way.

Yes what is left to finish? It appears as if it is complete to me.

Isn't there a mass tuned damper at the top of the antenna?

There are even 2 mass tuned dampers in the top.

But it's really only the platform at the very top that gives the wide appearance, they could have gone without it.

Furthermore the antenna is completely finished, although some of the netting still needs to be removed. There are still some open spots, most noticeably the at the bottom of the antenna. This is caused by the late overall height increase from 610m to 634m that was announced about a year ago. But that again makes it easier to have future additions to the array of antennas that are already on the tower.

All this gave the tower it's functional look, nothing has been done to hide it's actual purpose.

ps.
299 days before the grand opening, the countdown has begun.

I guess there is still a lot of work to be done before the public is allowed into this beautiful tower. Hopefully in a couple of years I will walk there myself.
