  • TOKYO - Sky Mile Tower - 1700m Proposed Building - スカイマイルタワー

    The Sky Mile Tower is a proposed 1,699.87 m (5,577 ft) megatall building in Tokyo, Japan. The design of the tower is part of an initiative called Next Tokyo 2045 for research and developmental purposes and was made by Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates and Leslie E. Roberson Associates. The Sky Mile Tower is to be built on an archipelago of reclaimed land in Tokyo Bay. This proposed reclamation project with the Sky Mile Tower as its centerpiece is dubbed as "Next Tokyo". The building is designed to be occupied by around 55,000 people and is planned to be 1,699.87 m (5,577 ft) high. The song was produced by me.

On our bus ride to Narita Airport, we cut through the city, passing famous landmarks such as the Tokyo Tower and Tokyo Skytree. The Tokyo Tower looks almost identical to the Eiffel Tower of Paris, France. The tower was built in 1958 and is the second tallest artificial structure in Japan. Originally, the Tokyo Tower supported radio and television antennas. When Japan switched to digital broadcasting in 2011, a taller structure was needed. As a result the Tokyo Skytree was built. You can see the Skytree in this video as well. The Skytree was completed in February of 2012 and also holds communication and broadcasting equ...

The Skytree was completed in February of 2012 and also holds communication and broadcasting equipment, in addition to an observation tower and restaurant. The Tokyo Skytree is the second tallest structure in the world, after Burj Khalifa in Dubai. Driving over Rainbow Bridge and Tokyo Bay was my favorite part of the journey. Japan's large export machine is on display, with a huge port in the distance. Cargo ships mingle with pleasure and tour boats. Several Japan Coast Guard ships can be seen in port. Although there is significant traffic in Tokyo at rush hour, the drivers are calmer than in America. Road rage in Japan appears to be pretty much nonexistent. While people work long hours and they are probably in a rush, they give each other the benefit of the doubt. Horn honking is rare and aggressive maneuvers such as weaving in and out of traffic are frowned upon. All in all, I would find it difficult to drive in Tokyo simply because of the majestic surroundings. It would be hard for me to keep my eyes on the road! Good thing we chose to ride the bus instead of renting a car!

Next in Tokyo, Japan, we'll take a look at the construction site of Tokyo Sky Tree, the tallest broadcasting tower in the world. Our correspondent spoke with the designer of Tokyo Sky Tree on how it was built to resist even the strongest earthquake in the country. Tokyo Sky Tree will become the world's tallest free standing broadcast tower, and is revealing its secret in overcoming earthquakes in quake-prone Japan. Standing over 630 meters high, Tokyo Sky Tree was designed by Nikken Sekkei, a Japanese architecture firm experienced in building quake-resistant, high-rise buildings in Japan. The company developed a system of adding mass as a balancing weight to buildings, to control how they sway during an earthquake. For the Tokyo Sky Tree project, the emergency staircase, situated in the core of the tower, acts as the mass, controlling sway during an earthquake. According to Nikken Sekkei, it's the first in the world. [Eizo Toyoda, P.R Manager, Nikken Sekkei]: "The core column and the surrounding steel frame are constructed separately. Therefore, when it shakes from an earthquake, they will shake in different ways. The system works by utilizing their different ways of shaking to repress the overall sway." Along the core, oil dampers are also installed to absorb shock. These act as cushions and are able to absorb swaying up to 50 percent. [Eizo Toyoda, P.R Manager, Nikken Sekkei]: "In the middle there's a space of about a meter, and from the height of 125 to 375 meters, we put six oil dampers. This is to control swaying so that the core column won't hit the inner part of the tower. They also serve to absorb the energy from an earthquake." The concept of using a central mass for the Tokyo Sky Tree was borrowed from traditional Japanese wisdom of building five-story pagodas. The longest standing pagoda in Japan is regarded to be at Horyu-ji Temple in Nara Prefecture, built in the 7th century. Tokyo Sky Tree will be opened to the public in May 2012 as Tokyo's newest landmark and popular tourist attraction.
