lol but the shear size of this structure at the bottom is enormous, look at the sdistance between the core and edge of the bottom floors.

Relax, at this point is just pre constructed steel sections. After finishing the concrete base, they could reach this point in a matter of days. Don't forget that ESB was finished in less than a year using the same method and a century old equipment.

Learn from Example

I think construction companies throughout the world should take note and learn on how fast a construction process can take place here. It is going up so fast that it is almost hard to document the progress.

TOKYO - The world's tallest building will get the go-ahead next week, but the 610-metre-high (2,100-foot) Sumida Tower will hold the lofty title for only a few weeks.

The shining steel structure will soar above the Asakusa tourist district of central Tokyo after approval is granted by the city authorities.

But even if construction of the tower were to start Sunday, it would enjoy only a brief reign at the top of the world: its projected completion date in 2009 is very close to that of the Burj Dubai, which will be at least 80 metres taller.
Lol that's in post 1 of this thread. Did the tower have huge delay or something? (first time I look on this thread). At least 80 metres taller... 207 meters to be exact .

And when is the completion date for this tower?

completion date: December 2011.

The first plans for this tower were announced in December 2003 and the final go ahead was made in May 2006. The they still had to get most of the local planning permissions, the final design still had to be chosen etc etc. The completion date in 2009 as stated in the article was already unrealistic at the time it was published.

And tommyzion, thanks for the update especially since the blogs are a bit quit lately.

Especially this picture, it's the 1st time we see the steel for one of the 3 legs of the steel body of the tower coming out of the hole!

Thanx to all the photogs - keep up the good work.

Good idea! How do you sort those pictures? A map for every month?

I think the vertical growth will slow down a bit for next one month, as it get's into "phase 2" (ie, installing tower cranes and starting the construction of other structures on site)

I sort by structure / year / month / and for big months on the BD by week. I also name pics YY_MM_DD_# so they are in order. Near 29,000 pics of the BD. Over 3500 of the CS. I now watch 12 structures but some unfortunately on hold now.

Back OT. Great update Tommy. You, Momo, and Japanese - keep up the good work.
