I still can't get over how fast this thing is going! just two weeks ago it was as high as the tallest building in Christchurch (76m), and now it is 17 meters higher.
I think the construction will be an average of a meter a day (30 meters in 31 days, from 21/7 to 21/8)
I think the webcam needs an upgrade, you can't even see the current top.

Incredible to think this picture was taken just 24 days ago. The difference is outstanding.

That's the power of the internet. Much respect for the people that upload their pictures every day on their blogs for the world to see.

Oh, I shot two updates myself when I was in Tokyo for three weeks in May and June, that was fun to do.

Anyway,

Blog round-up 8/7

All cranes are raised.

Survey: Anyone interested in more Mr. Teddy exclusive construction shots?
If I am not too busy, I might go out and bring Mr. Teddy to the site this weekend.

What's really amazing is that as the tower gets taller, it gets thinner, so that the number of pieces and time it will take to assemble them will grow shorter! Until they get to the occupied levels. I wonder if those will be pre-fab parts as well?

To reach the 100m they put a new part on the North corner.

It's actually already 105 meter high.

The number of cranes will go down and you have to lift the pieces a lot farther.
