I dont care who builds it, not gonna step in to any buildings built in 90 days or less, EVEN as simple as 6 story apartment building.

I believe if they actually finish the building in next March, people from around the world will flock there to enter the building within days. It will be the real marvel of wonders in the modern world.

Lot of idiotic comments here

They're specially designed to be strong and installed quickly... they aren't just bundling up some sticks and propping them up 800m in 90 days...

Maybe they still think a skyscraper is symbol of power even though the idea of power and a skyscraper have long gone. ugh i think its a stupid idea and i don't think people are gonna go there probably going to end up deserted like most of there large scale projects
like the super mall that no one goes to or the deserted cities they just make to throw money its not out of necessity its just to be showy.

I agree with you. It would be fantastic if we had the technology to build such a building in 90 days but in my opinion we are still decades away from that

The technology is there already, but the question is whether there is a need. If BSB wants to build it that's fine but they will have accept the cost associated with it.

the need for it is there. if the cost really is much cheaper than constructing it with conventional methods at least. but noone will take the risk before it is proven to be a successful concept, design, building. if they can built it and it is a success structurewise, even if the costs are extremely high and the building stands empty, the requests will flood them. but the initial step building this thing might not be possible.

China already built a 15-story hotel in 6 days.

Check this out.

There is also a youtube video on how they constructed it.
