Not a strange question I guess. It got lots of unused space when I look at the cross-section which is not very profitable.

But what about the construction time, isn't 5 years a bit short for such a project??? And is the starting date already known?

Isn't it a park over there right now? So to build this building they should take a huge part of forest out?
Project itself looks interesting - but why such a huge base?

The arcology-like tower would contain a hotel, a business centre, a sports cents centre,an entertainment centre, a shopping mall, and a parking garage. What else would it contain?
