I could imagine little electric cars or segway like things though. Bicycle would be the best probably though other than walking if it is not very steep

I mean, who in their right mind would bother to drive a car all the way up there? For what? And if the "road" was opened for everybody who lived in the tower, you'd be looking at a perpetual indoor traffic jam, or a gas chamber, depending on how well ventilated it would be. Maybe they'd pull a car up there for an advertisement stunt once, but it would probably be towed by winches most of the way, to prevent emissions.
Right, my misunderstanding. It looks like a road on the plan. Even if for pedestrians it would be too steep. I remember this design in a building in Dubai I think. It had a car lift so people can drive all the way to their door. Nice idea but could never work. One car lift for 100 apartments, you'd be waiting a while.

That was Dynamic Tower which most of us agree was never a real proposal with any chances to be built.

There are a few towers around the world that offer this, but each one is considered a luxury tower with a low level of occupants and even then, maybe half of the apartments will have this option. Only real car guys would be willing to give up several hundred square feet of their Penthouse to store their cars. I'm pretty sure there is a Penthouse apartment in NYC where the owner has or at one point had, a very expensive Ferrari parked in a glass garage where people down below could see it. I remember seeing pictures of it on the news or a car show.


Sky cities "road" was meant to be more of a foot/bike path with the occasional maintenance truck on it to help residents move in or repair things. There is no way several thousand people would be able to drive their cars right up to their doors Forget the emissions and gridlock, and think about the added weight alone. Imagine if more cars just happened to be on one side of the Tower then the other. It would lean badly or even collapse. Sometimes you have to think about the logistics of something like this to understand that it just wouldn't be possible

There is one in Singapore called Hamilton Scott with such a car lift.

This project is dead. They've just announced the tower to get attention from the rest of the world.(f.ex. That it would be the tallest and that they've had a completely new method to build this)

let us see how J97 plays out, before ruling this one out completely.

Per square foot, people actually weigh more than cars do; crowds have a proscribed load of 100psf, where cars only are 40psf.

Very true. I was about to rise that argument too I don't think this building is planned for car jams or cars at all, but any tower needs to be able to work with huge mass dislocations. And if you add wind force to this it's clear there's simply no moment in lifetime of a building when the load is distributed equally.

Btw just imagine crowds of people jumping inside one side of tower I'm pretty sure it would be much worse than cars and any tower must work with such scenarios.

I think we have learned enough from this

I'm not sure if this was already posted before,
but it's very interesting the way the designers have distributed the space for apartments from 50m2 to 225m2.







Let's keep an eye on J97, just to be sure this Sky City is feasible.

Wow, those are some terrible residential floor-plans! A four bedroom with ZERO windows in the living area? A two bedroom with ZERO windows in the living area, and a four bedroom with ONE window in the living area...that looks directly into someone else's bedrooms>>>?

They already have this in New York, but for a smaller building.

Don't take this stuff serious... these planes could be fake. And, judging by the look, they most probably are. Also I think that's the old design which was later replaced by this one.

Broad Sustainable Buildings to develop Riverfront District in Yinchuan


Broad's new project in Hunan


It will be quite fascinating to see BSB of Changsha and 3D printing companies work together to build skyscrapers at lightning speed.
