With strong partners such as Fujian United Benefit Broad Sustainable Building Technology Co., Ltd. Broad sustainable Broad Sustainable Buildings ambitions are getting from Big to Bigger to World's biggest.

Master planned factory of Fujian United Benefit Broad Sustainable Building Technology Co., Ltd. complete with staff living quarters in Fujian province.


The age of instantly built skyscrapers has arrived and thanks to China, these buildings will be sprouting around the world like weed.

For sure NO American, European or Arab Money. This is all home grown!!!

So what is going on, did they stop construction? After they said they started, it is kind of pissing me off that there is this huge confusion. And even though if its in prep, i would love for this to move to uc section if it is even in prep

Dont worry, have some patience

That means it would be the world's tallest building for about 5 years, till Kingdom Tower is completed (which is under contruction)

Well, what if Kingdom Tower gets built before Sky City J220? I swear that would be like torture (since J220 should have been completed before)

Well, medieval European cities was far more susceptible to fire and there wasn't fires every year. Nowadays technologies are more secure; if we can manage witch fire in 1000 ft tall buildings, this is possible as well in this one I suppose...

I like this part (this is of course about the skycity one):

The company had said that it would start construction in June this year, but is reported to have suffered delays in getting permits. A press conference is due to be held soon to announce the official construction date, according to Shanghai Steel.

From the description it could be Zhucha Island off the Huangdao coast. Would be visible from Qingdao AND Huangdao then too...

1,008 metres? I guess it's just a coincidence that Kingdom Tower is 1,007.
