Technically it's a tower and not a building.

And to be fair, buildings or towers don't necessarily have to be beautiful to be awesome.

22 May 2012 seems a bit quite far away to have an incite from the tower Why is it taking so long ?

Originally the tower should have been completed this month, but it got delayed until February. To complete the tower isn't taking that long. But since they already had the opening planned in Spring 2012 they just picked 22 May. I don't know why they didn't pick a date earlier in the Spring. I can guess that it had to be after the Golden Week because it might have become simply too busy if it was opened just before this holiday in the 1st week of May.

From the perspective of the New Year I was thinking that they'll be finished with the interior works and have the opening around the end of the year to allow citizens to have the New Years party up there. Looks like we'll be waiting 3 more weeks after Hinamatsuri for the opening.

I prefer pyongyang tower than this.

I hate towers, probably the only tower uglier thant this is the tower in Auckland, The only tower I can stand is in Toronto.

Why did you build this thing?

Impressive photos indeed, thanks for sharing! The structure is somehow starting to grow on me, surprisingly.

I'd like it without that horrible extra mast on top and it wouldn't look so ridiculously tall then. I guess it does the job it was created for, though.
