China to Build World's Tallest Skyscraper in 90 Days

By Ningauble @AliAksoz

China is planning on building the world’s tallest building in only three months, yeah… Three. The 220-story skyscraper is named Sky City. It’s being built by the same company that built a 30-story hotel in 15 days, Broad Sustaining Building. Sky City will be built in a similar way, using prefabricated modular pieces that are attached on site.

China will build world’s tallest building in 90 days

Sky City will use an astonishing 220,000 tons of steel. The structure will be able to house 31,400 people of both “high and low income communities”. The company says that the residential area will use 83-percent of the building, while the rest will be offices, schools, hospitals, shops and restaurants. People will move up and down using 104 high speed elevators.

They also claim it will be able to sustain earthquakes of a 9.0 magnitude and be resistant to fire for “up to three hours,” as well as be extremely energy efficient thanks to thermal insulation, four-panned windows and different air conditioning techniques that were already used in their previous constructions.

 

If they can do it properly and safe, it will be a major accomplishment. The question is: can they?
