This video looks as unauthentic as the whole proposal.

Yeah, generally one would expect simple English words to be spelled correctly at the very least.

Nobody actually expects this to go forward. Nobody with any knowledge of basic economics, anyway.

Guys, tomorrow I'm revealing my 6666 meters tall tower design for Sheboygan Wisconsin. If the design gets approved, it'll be like a 100 times taller than the Burj!
I also need an anchor tenant if anyone's interested in taking up a few million sqf.
Fingers crossed!

I doubt this would get built.

Exactly. And many sources wrote about the Japanese government document "Next Tokyo". I tried to make a simply research in japanese but... It doesn't exist.

Only the following create by the architects group: http://global.ctbuh.org/resources/pa...-ecologies.pdf

The only that it's possible to be constructed is the Runway E @Haneda Airport.

I did get picked up a bit in the media, but mostly on website with popular news, without any background info other then lists of other tall towers in the world. But almost nothing in the more serious mainstream media or the specific construction news websites.

The most serious was this article on wired Japan, with an interview with David Malott from Kohn Pederson Associates where it's more presented as an utopia, a concept for future cities.

http://wired.jp/2015/02/10/next-world-10/



It would probably gain more interest if 1 or more of the major Japanese banks/real estate developer decide to show some interest in these proposals.

But even then there will be more then enough hurdles on the route before this will actually become a serious plan. It's location in relation to Haneda Airport will be one of the main issues.

Tokyo so far doesn't have a single 300m tall building. There's a huge sea of low-rises that could be replaced. If they need more room in the city, maybe that's a more realistic that would be a more realistic way of getting it?

The tower has a potential occupancy of 55,000 people and would feature 20m-high multi-level open-air sky decks every 320m, as well as shops, restaurants, hotels, libraries, gyms and health clinics.

But the height isn’t the only striking feature of the development.

Architects have designed Next Tokyo 2045 as a series of hexagonal archipelagos on reclaimed land in Tokyo Bay.

Although “very ambitious”, the Sky Mile Tower is entirely feasible, according to Ulster University Belfast honorary visiting Professor Chris Abel.

“There is the engineering know-how, but the question is why do it,” he told The New Daily.

“Tokyo needs [development in Tokyo Bay], it is going to grow, it is going to need expansion, whether or not this tower is actually needed, that is the question.”

The development according to Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates, the New York-based architects behind the idea, is an effort to adapt to climate change through “a high-density eco-district built on resilient infrastructure”.

Seems like a publicity stunt for the firm.

Yep...it is too anticipated...2045? They should begin working at least in 2035...is almost 20 years more, so many other structures will be done by then...

Let's keep it more real, in our time.

Cheers,

super skeptical not of funding, but if soil in the island nation of Japan can support a 1700 meter structure....I highly doubt it.

This reminds me of the "Tokyo sky city" 45 minute video from ~1999:

I would actualy prefer Sky City than this, there were many nice fantasy proposals for Tokyo in the past as well - imo cooler than this one.

Anyway, Im trying to imagine how would it feel being on top of this structure during magnitude 8 earthquake.
