The Sky City tower is slated to become the world's tallest building.
Currently, the Burj Khalifa in Dubai is the World’s Tallest Building.
Well, that record may soon change hands. Sky City, a 220-story tower may be taking its place.
It will reportedly stand 2,749 feet tall. Scheduled to debut in China in 2014, it is a prefabricated structure, requiring 3 months of manufacturing time off site and an additional 7 months needed for assembly in Changsha.
The design goal of the upcoming tower is to promote sustainability. Amazingly, the building will house office spaces, residential apartments, recreation areas, farms, even schools and a hospital. The structure will essentially serve as an entire city.
It will offer more than 4,400 families a place to live and be able to accommodate more than 100,000 people.
If the project is a success, the Chinese super tower will surpass the Burj Khalifa, which stands 2,716 feet high and serves as a 160 story waterfront building, housing hotels, retail offices and residential spaces.
