"Billionaire Broad Group CEO Zhang still adamant that 838 meter tall Skycity skyscraper will be built."

"Construction is one of the most polluting of all industries but I can make the most environmentally sound buildings for half the price and 10 times the speed of anyone else," Mr. Zhang says.

In a way it already exists and has existed for 2000 years. Concrete. Concrete is similar to 3d printing by pouring a liquid into a mold to form a rock into any shape we want. Quicker and easier than sculpting natural stone. Stronger too.

They continue to build highrises under this forum's radar, dunno why they don't go for the 200m mark.
