A Chinese construction company revealed their plans to build the world’s tallest skyscraper yesterday. Here’s where it gets crazy – they plan on completing the project in 3 months.
Sky City in Changsha, south-east China, will be a 220-story structure standing at an incredible 2,749ft (838m).
It will house 17,400 people, and also boast hotels, hospitals, schools and office space with occupants using 104 high-speed lifts to get around.
The superstructure that is half a mile tall will be 32 feet taller than the Burj Khalifa in Dubai – the current world’s tallest skyscraper – and is expected to cost almost half as much.
Everything about this sounds like a sketchy idea, as there is no way all of the safety regulations could be met within such a short amount of time.
