    China's Sky City will be world's tallest building by year's end

    China s Sky City will be world s tallest building by year s
    Home  /  Building


    The building is the 838-meter tall Sky City in Changsa, China. China's Sky City is a pre-fab skyscraper, one that is expected to become the world's tallest structure. And will be completed in record time (Burj Khalifa 828-meter). The total scheduled build time of Sky City is a meager seven months. That's a rate of 13 feet (more than a single story) per day. Even that incredibly ambitious goal is a step back toward sanity for Sky City's developers. The initial plan was to complete the structure in 90 days, which would have come out to roughly three floors a day. The Sky City is designed to resist a 9.0 earthquake. The Sky City has 220 stories, and it will cost $628 million. Watch the video of the how the project will come together and what it will ultimately look like.
