Especially in the evening, on this pic you can see that they still need to do 1 side for this level.

Wow this is going so fast!
to think it is as tall as the tallest building in Christchurch already! (actually it is exactly the same height of 76 metres)
the curvature can clearly be seen now in the structure.

It's nice that you already can see that the sides are starting to curve, on the way between a triangle and a circle.

Can't wait for next month...

Wish the WTC was as efficient, amazing progress. Over 2000 feet in an extreme earthquake and typhoon zone. Go Japan.

I just realized that this will be more than six times the height of Godzilla.

Great the shape "evolve" from triangle to circle. Do you think at the end of 2009 or the beginning of 2010 TST reach the Tokyo Tower's height ?

The Tokyo Tower is 333 meters tall.

As tall as the Sky Tree's 1st observation turret.

And looking at the builder's website:
http://www.skytree-obayashi.com/build/index.html

The 1st turret should be finished Summer 2010, so I think they will reach the 333 meter somewhere in Spring 2010. And that's about right if they continue the current speed, although they won't have to do the 30 meters every month like this month.

More fireworks pictures.
