Frankly I do not like much but sure as you see it grow to the sky impress anyone, even me.
I like that blue color you have.

Here's your answer

01/20 スカイツリーToday Update:

Also fresh concrete on the right side.

hard at work

More and more steel is going up on the site and also further away from the core.

The pace, the sheer pace of this construction is just unimaginable.

01/21 skytree.reporting.jp/ update:

only the big picture for now, close ups should come later.

[IMG]http://i41.************/24gkqbb.jpg[/IMG]

And we see a steel frame erected in the front middle of the picture. Although it's not for the actual tower but for one of the surrounding buildings, it's still going up up up!!!

We also see that the floor around the core is being covered, maybe those are the preparations for the concrete floor.

Incredible pictures, but can someone tell me if this is located in the financial section of tokyo or is just spread in a different (which looks to me) residential area. Thanks

You're right, it's not in one of the centers like Marunouchi or Shinjuku, it's located in the Sumida ward, 5 km Northeast of the central station.

Picture from the other side as requested. From 1/18, 3 days old but already a bit outdated.

hmm does the fast pace have anything to do with a stronger push for the 2016 olympic bid?
