The soon to be tallest building in Japan will be the Tokyo Sky Tree 東京スカイツリーwhich is slated for completion in the Spring of 2011. Long discussed, the tower is being constructed by a group of six terrestrial broadcasters (including NHK) who will use it to transmit digital television signals.
When completed, the 634 meter tall tower will stand out in Tokyo’s skyline and the tower’s observatory will be open to the public in the spring of 2012.
Construction has been ongoing for the last few years and you can view the building works via the webcam here.
