China to Build World’s Tallest Building in Just 90 Days

If completed, Sky City will be the world’s tallest building. (RFE-RL)

A Chinese construction company is planning on building the world’s tallest building in just 90 days.
Voice of America reported:

A Chinese construction company is insisting that it will be able to build the world’s tallest skyscraper in a matter of weeks.

The Broad Sustainable Building corporation tells the Construction Week magazine it is confident it can complete the 220-storey building, dubbed Sky City, in just 90 days.

The group says the 838-meter structure in the south-central city of Changsha will be completed at an astonishing pace of five storeys a day, using a special method that uses prefabricated sections.

Officials say construction is expected to begin by the end of the year, but they are still waiting for Chinese government approval of the project. When completed, it will house over 31,000 people, as well as schools, hospitals, offices and other businesses.

Meanwhile in New York… They’re still working on the One World Trade Center more than 10 years after the 9-11 attacks.

    Asian ingenuity, hard work, shared goals, communist….yes, but we could take a lesson or two in how they are advancing due to thei commitment to excellence, while the US is regressing due to our political correctness, where we strive for mediocrity.

    Oh, and they have no Unions.

    Indecent American, you are right, slave labor is cheaper.

    Keep in mind, the bathroom is a shared area down the hall, not in your apartment. Think of the hell that would be raised if our public housing projects had shared bathrooms. Think of the money it would save!

    Quality?? Are you kidding me? Have you looked at Chinese products? Of course you have. They have flooded our markets. Junk! That is what they make, and that is what this building would be. I wouldn’t want to be anywhere near this thing, let alone go into it.

    Is there a mosque nearby? What of the zoning requirements on commercial impact? Did minority firms win the bids? Are all union teams utilized? What of the CO2 impact? Might a snail darter or another protected species ve harmed?

    America is dead. Its people sold out for a handful of “free” condoms and a promise of “free” healthcare they had to buy themselves.

    Slave labor can accomplish amazing things. It built the pyramids.

    one world trade center is a monument to the inefficiency of the modern american politican. they can’t do anything except confiscate the worker’s income.

    Is Changsha one of China’s “ghost cities?” Maybe the planned skyscraper will be nothing but a facade.

    Why is China building eerie ‘ghost cities’?

    Sure they’ll build it in 90 days. I wouldn’t want to step in it though. Look at the materials and weep. Substandard. The electrical, plumbing, and such will all be substandard. The tap heads will break off if you mess with them too much. There’ll be gaps in the finishing. Don’t look too closely at it, don’t go in the back cuz it will look like a dump. Don’t have too many in the elevator.

    In America elevators can be chock full of people. Not so in China. Steel is steel in America, hard to bend. Not so in China. Then, look at the building when it’s done, and hopefully it might be level with the height of the stair treads equal and level. Don’t get blown away by Asian “ingenuity” cuz it doesn’t exist. I’ve seen them dig up and move whole huge trees and replant them elsewhere, and I thank God typhoons didn’t happen where this was done.

    After this building is built in 90 days, no one will still be able to drink water from the tap as folks can do in the USA.

    Lol, I don’t doubt poor quality of Chinese products, which I can guarantee is somewhere in your household now. But how do you explain their economy is revving up, and Americas is regressing? How much US debt does China own.

    Laugh at them, but due to our clown president, they are taking over the world.

  • Ghost

    90 days, hmmm do you really want to get on that elevator?

  • bigL

    like the chinese cars it will have a special option…It will fold in half upon impact…

  • squeaky

    from much earlier this year. a 30 story in 15 days………


    90 days LOL. I won’t be spending time in that propaganda building.

    To those who extoll the virtues of “made in America,” be reminded of Three Mile Island, the WPPS (Washington Public Power System) default, the New Orleans levees, and Solyndra, among others. Regardless of the details, they were “made in America,” by Americans.

    I recall a bumper sticker years ago, which read, “The parts falling from this car are of the finest British make.”

    Excellence is not permanent. It must be continuously and relentlessly pursued.

    Agree with #1. . .

    I go to China often and yes quality does vary but have stayed in Shanghai at the Hyatt (88 story building) which tops anything I have seen here in US. . .

    Let not kid ourselves, the US Freedom Tower is a perfect example. .more than 10 years after 9-11 and still not complete. . .thanks to lawyers.

    The US needs to wake up that we are loosing our place as #1. . .
    with a newly elected third world government of incompetent radical at the helm
    Spending us into oblivion
    while stealing from the treasury for their political supporters or Obama phones and Foodstamps instead of using the money wisely to build a bigger and better infrastructure

    Remember, give a man a fish, feed him for a day
    Teach him to fish and feed him for life.

    But heck, even the Obama phone lady needs her flat panel TV and blu-ray player. . .and her Mickey-D’s!
