Why would they build a 400m supertall demo version?

Isn't because it's using a new construction method? Pre-fabricated components or whatever? Or am I totally off

Any news so far? It has become very silent around that proposal.

Go back a few pages Kanto. There are pictures of some sort of demo version of this building under construction. That was back in the middle of March so right now who knows what the progress with that is. I know we thought this project looked dead before but those pictures raise my eyebrows. Unfortunately we don't receive many updates so it is hard to tell what exactly is going on at that exact location.

The pictures and link are on Page 61. I also found this thread in the cityscapes section about Changsha. http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=1604300 I am trying to find the black building in the picture on gaoloumi in order to locate the construction by Broad in the link.

I guess this project is officially dead. I haven't heard of any news of this skyscraper's proposal or construction. I knew a building like this was too good to be true.

I think it was clear from the start that you can't build an 800m tower with that construction method without it collapsing under its own weight or wind pressure.

I just found a video that I believe has not been posted here before. It has 3D renderings of the tower and its interior, with typical Chinese subtlety :P

That is exactly how my vision of a perfect urban habitat looks like. No dense streets devoid of any form of nature, just a few gigantic buildings and arround them beautiful forrests and fields, fusing together the best of both cities (proximity and availability of services) and villages (nature). This building could be very well called Kanto Tower
