Investors are hoping the new tower will be complete by 2010

Six Japanese broadcasting networks will work together to pay for a radio and television transmitter tower that will be the tallest tower in the world.  The tower will stand tall, reaching nearly 600 meters, which will make it taller than the 553-meter tall CN Tower in Toronto, Canada.  The New Tokyo Tower will be built in an old railway yard, with the company that owns the land also ready to pay for part of the construction of the tower. 

The broadcasters are using Tokyo Tower as a transmitter for both analog and digital terrestrial broadcasting. But Japan plans to switch broadcasting waves completely from analog to digital, which will offer high-quality audio visual transmission and two-way communications by July 2011.

The deal to finalize the plans for the second Tokyo Tower should be passed by the end of the month.  Construction is estimated to cost about $420 million.
