That is if the info on the first page is still credible.
The japanese article says: 11年12月に完成する, then it's planned to be completed in December of 2011.

Good heavens, that wall is like a great wall of Japan.

Is it snowing there or is that rain?

「東京スカイツリー」青みがかった白、下町の空に映える色

 東京都墨田区に建設中の新タワー「東京スカイツリー」の色が、青みがかった白に決まった。建設する東武鉄道が26日発表した。

 新タワーの色は日本の伝統色で最も薄い藍(あい)染めの色である「藍白(あいじろ)」がベースとなっており、「スカイツリーホワイト」と名付けられた。

 航空機から見づらい高さ60メートル以上の鉄塔や煙突は、航空法で紅白の塗装を求められる場合があり、同法施行前に完成した港区の東京タワーも、旧運輸省の要請で紅白塗装が施された経緯がある。

 新タワーは高さ約610メートルあるが、ストロボのように明滅する高光度航空障害灯を28機設置するため、国土交通省が独自の色に「お墨付き」を与えた。同鉄道では「下町の青い空に映える色」としている。

Translation from Babelfish:

Color of the new tower “Tokyo sky tree” which is in the midst of constructing in white and glows in the sky of the downtown color Tokyo Sumida Ku to which “Tokyo sky tree” becoming green applies, was decided in the white to which becoming green applies. The Tobu Railway Co., Ltd. which it constructs announced on the 26th.  Color of the new tower the thinnest indigo (meeting) is color of dyeing with the Japanese traditional color, “indigo white (it meets and the [ji] [ro])” has become the base, it was named “sky tree white”.  From the aircraft as for the tower and the smokestack above difficult to see height 60 meter, there are times when paint of crimson white is required with aviation law, before the same method enforcing Tokyo tower of Minato-ku which is completed, there are the details where crimson white paint is administered with old Ministry of Transport request.  As for the new tower there are height approximately 610 meters, but like the Strobo in order 28 to install the high brightness red mast head light which blinks, the national traffic ministry gave the “certificate” to individual color. With the same railroad it has made “the color which glows in the sky where the downtown is blue”.

a bit more decent translation by me
Quote:
On February 26, Tobu Railway Co., Ltd. announced that they'd decided to paint Tokyo Sky Tree bluish white, the new tower which is under construction in Sumida, Tokyo.

The color of the new tower, named Sky Tree White, is based on Aijiro (lit. indigo white), the lightest Japanese traditonal color used for indigo dyeing.

The aviation law requires steel structures or smokestacks taller than 60 meters which are not easily recognizable from planes to be painted red and white. When Tokyo Tower was completed in Minato before the law was in force, it was also painted red and white at the request of the old Ministry of Transport.

Though the new tower is approximately 610 meters tall, the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism officially permitted the newly-made color on the condition that they install 28 high-intensity aviation-obstruction lights, which blink like strobe lights. The company says the color will stand out against the blue sky above the traditional residential district.

That's why I'm so happy about it. I love the skyscrapers blinking red all over the place at night. A huge tower with 28 of them is warmly welcomed!
