I think "rural people" would be better than "farmer" in this case

It's difficult to say it seem between 250 and 300 m but I am not sure. However I compare with the Dubai's Index which TO with the same height to have an idea.

Good observation. Does seem surreal looking at old, present and future all at once.

That was exactly what I thought when I saw the picture. It is a really different scenery. In a good way.. I liked it.

There're some pagoda-like apartments. Then this flamboyant building. Somehow nice, but so kitsch.

HANGING VILLAGE OF HUAXI | 01.03.10

Yesterday, I found in a chilean newspaper, called "La Segunda", a little info about this project.
The information on this newspaper talk about Huaxi, a city located in China, that have one of the most riches cities in China and this tall structure that reaches 328-meters high.


(Sorry about the bad quality of the pic, I used a scanner)

Currently the project is called Hanging Village of Huaxi.

BTW. There is another project for this city, a 538-meters high tower proposed for Huaxi. The cost it's around US$ 880-million. No more info about it.

i was there several days ago, and see this building myself, the surrounding is really weired.
the huaxi core village are only one, but the core village has no develop space(no land), recently, huaxi village merge another 11 villagers into "large and new huaxi",but the another 11 villages give the core huaxi land, but benifit little. this building is an example.
the building is for whose private house are demolished(for new factory,mostly the another 11 villagers),and drive them live in this supertall, lol. but they prefer live in villars(their former private house normally 250 square meters).
anyway, the building will provide good service, inculde clean the room, breakfast,cloth wash etc, the housewives's life will be easy.

Amazing! Perhaps the most futuristic looking skyscraper to be built. I wish this building were in Shanghai with the other space-age designs.

I agree. Also if you look at the Newspaper picture, are those just new steel beams or is it near topped-out?
