For those of you with insufficient brain capacity, this is what happens when you build a building too fast... (In China unsurprisingly)

This project is not approved yet,but 6 months is possible when you see they're building 200m in 15 days

Jay is right, a building of this size can't be constructed in 6 months and still be safe for occupation

Is it just me or could a cat have designed that? It looks as though is was sketched in the 80s. As much as I feel China could probably build something like this in the six month time frame, it would probably be very poorly made, and would surely not meet the required seismic tests.

Poorly made in China = breaks

Ewww. That spire looks tacked on. Khalifa's spire flows nicely with the building itself.

I would not want it to be taken over by a hulk like this.

if built this would most likely get the title for the building with most floors though, it is unlikely Kingdom Tower will reach 220 floors.

The project seems pure fantasy, we can only wait an see. Anyway, what do you people think is the maximum reasonable speed to build something like this?

Of course you cannot use modular construction method they have employed for that 30 storey building. Nevertheless, with strong enough foundations already in place, the actual erection could take no more than 24 months. And I think this would already be a remarkable achievement.

I'm afraid it could be longer than 6 months. Maybe 2-5 years...

Nobody is saying that the final product will be rised using only the modular technique presented on experiments. From the diagram it is clear the central part (the core?) is different and stronger from the rest (living units). In short - we still haven't been shown everything imo and until they will we can't say what's possible or not. Other than that I think it is important that this building is pyramidal in shape. Each of the bottom sections have to withstand only fraction of load of sections above, also the pyramidal shape makes it more stable. There is no doubt you can't build tower like 432 park ave with this method

I think two years excluding foundation is indeed reasonable. After alll we have to remember this tower sacrifice any design (which makes it hard to believe it's beautiful for anybody ) for simplicity and repetitiveness which imo may speed up things significantly.

That is of course if they are not just bullshitting us with this project

More images of the model. It indeed looks like Willis's mom. I don't know if I like it, I'll wait to see decent renders.
