They'll be prefabricated, which means they'll have already been assembled before they arrive on site.

What if I don't like it? That's 5 years for nothing! At least with this method, waiting 6 months to a year isn't so bad. And now, if this project works out without to many problems? Other countries will adopt this form of construction and we could have those Blade runner/ Star Wars skylines in the next 10 years!

after all we live in a fast world and china has to anticipate what it will need 6 years in the future when planning buildings, with this method it reduces a lot of risk and can help with vacancy rates that are hard to guess for the future.

To plan 6 years or more in the future is almost impossible. Just look what happened during the construction of BK.

yeah, that is what i tried to say, if construction gets so much faster we will see a lot less constructions go on-hold, because the investors know what they pay for. the whole construction cost is easier to anticipate.

Yeah, that's what it all boils down to. If I was a developer, I'd be scared out of my pants to try and construct a building of such massive proportions.

And they are prefabricating a functional building ( not just the structure ). The prefabricated panels, if needed, come with electrical,plumbing and HVAC related items pre-installed on them.

About 250 million additional 'urbanites' in about 12 years ( 250 million people/17,400 = 14,367.82 Sky City Ones ).

I completely agree with you. The sooner a building is finished, the better. For us skyscraper fanatics, for the developer and for the people who plan on occupying it. This project is indeed the skyscraper dream comming true. I am still skeptical about this new construction method working, however we just have to wait and see. Something as revolutionary as this had to come sooner or later and even though I expected it later, I'd definitely be glad to see it sooner

With that method, developers wouldn't need to be so skeptical about large projects where the economy bottoms out 3 years into the construction. With this not only will they be built more quickly, but also in greater numbers.

I also didn't expect a building method like this to come along so soon. I really hope this works out! We already know that they can make smaller buildings using this method. If this works out? I wonder if Japan would adopt this building method? Tokyo is one of the most scrap and build cities I have been to. Also, they are supposed to be more earthquake resistant than current buildings. In Japan, I imagine this building method to be a developers dream!

Every country in the world would want to adopt this method if it works. This would save trillions of dollars in the construction industry and cause a fundamental shift in the very fundamentals of highrise construction .... that is, if it works

Well, if it works, our world will be something like this:

BTW, can fully-glassed building be build using this method?

Ahh Good 'ol Coruscant. Note that the 'edge' of the canyon of buildings is actually still about 3km high. Those superscapers must be around 20km or something. I always wondered what's in those buildings though, because the areas with actual windows are very small compared to those huge solid areas. Or maybe they are one sides transparant walls so light can comes in but not out.

I admit I just watched the beginnen of Star Wars II a few times, just to see Coruscant. The guy that made all the concept art and actual 3D footage of Coruscant for the movies is a frikkin' genius.

Sure ... but why? They are just supertall 'medieval'castles/churches/temples.


A more realistic possibility (Zoomlion is based in Changsha) ...

I don't know how well the modular structural system of J220 can adapt to different designs (with refinement, it probably could result in some really beautiful concepts), but when I think of thousands of SkyCity towers going up around the world, I think of this:


(from Inception)

Which I wouldn't mind at all, as long as they don't bulldoze our old urban cores to do it, like Le Corbusier wanted to do to Paris.

The suburbs, on the other hand...

Not with the new urban planning guidelines.

Sky City One, Two, Three ... may be on layouts that look like this:
