This half mile-high skyscraper will house an entire Chinese city. The world’s tallest skyscraper will house an entire Chinese city and is set to begin construction next month in the city of Changsha, China. Along with being the tallest skyscraper on earth, it will also become the equivalent of a whole city; this is a sustainable way to accommodate China’s massive, rapidly growing population.

The company responsible for this amazing building is Broad Sustainable Construction. The company says that the Sky City concept will reduce the per capita use of land, which will also drastically reduce emissions. A person living in this vertical city would be using 1/100th of the land compared to a normal city dweller.

This new concept for a Chinese city is absolutely incredible. The building will literally have all of the same functions and amenities as a regular city. Stats for City-Sized Skyscrapers Trending: Older & Buzzing
