So what?If you look at the neighbouring country you can also find so called ancient "engineering feet".Even so this suddenly accounts the possibility of building a tower worth at least a billion dollar?Even if this tower magically appear in Dhaka what use does it serve to Dhaka?It's going to make Bangla more financially trouble.Dhaka is listed one of the worst cities for investment.I'm not being racist here but the leap is too big and irrational one.Hence why everyone in this forum thinks it is a bad idea.Bangla first need to stabilise its country politically and economic.

I would be glad if this building passes height restriction, because the tallest building in Dhaka's economic center (Gulshan/Banani area) is only 40 stories tall because of the airport. This building is less than 10 km from the airport. Assuming the flight paths are not an issue, the cost along with the numerous barriers make this project extremely unfeasible and implausible

Yes, with 700m it would be taller than Shanghai Tower.

It's true that China has extremely tall buildings however China is not comparable to Bangladesh.

China is part of BRICS and is classed as a newly industrialized country. Their DP is the second largest in the world at over 10 trillion dollars. As well, their HDI is high at 0.727 and they have a history of infrastructure related developments. For example; China high-speed rail system is the longest in the world eclipsing the sum total of ALL the other countries. They have the Shanghai Tower at 632 m and the Chow Tai Fook in Shenzhen at a hair under 600 m which are both completed in addition to numerous other supertalls.

Conversely, Bangladesh is counted among the Next 11 and is a developing country. Their GDP is much lower at topping out around Portugal's (a nation with 5% of the population. The HDI is one of the lowest in Asia at 0.57 and have no experience with massive infrastructure projects. As I said in the lede, their current tallest building is a skyscraper at 171 m.

While it might seem harsh to dismiss such a plan (like Cambodia's insane twin towers) it would not be without precedent for a developing country to build a supertall (or in this case a megatall.) I would suggest looking to it's neighbour India for comparison - it currently has neither supertall nor megatall complete and likewise lacks a modern railway system.

Will this tower get built? I would not make any bets on it.

Has there been any news on whether construction will start on this? Last I heard was the Prime Minister approving the project which would allow construction to begin (late 2016). Nothing since...

The concern I have is this "Kali Pradip Chaudhury Group" doesn't sound like a reliable or established developer.

As a pragmatic initiative Bangladesh government and Businessmen should encourage Chinese Businessmen to develop mega tall skyscrapers in Bangladesh, especially Zhang Yue of BSB Changsha, he has the potential and resources but at the moment his government didn't approve to build his mega tall skyscraper: 838m Sky City

I agree with you, I think Bangladeshi property development companies should team up with Chinese companies and entrepreneurs like Zhang Yue of BSB Changsha & Huang Nubo, chairman of Zhongkun Investment Group. These companies have the skills and resources to support a mega tall skyscraper

BSB Changsha wanted to build several mega tall skyscrapers with their prefabricated building technology.

Here's their 838m mega project


Huang Nubo, chairman of Zhongkun Investment Group wants to build a mega resort in Iceland but the Government of Iceland continuously rejected his offer.

It would be really nice if a good Bengali Businessman like Mohamed Tunis and/ or Salman F Rahman for instance are able to team up with the Chinese to bid for the mega tall skyscraper project and development a sustainable skyscraper

How about building something useful like a reliable fast public transport instead.

They are already building a metro and boat navigation system. However due to large population and high population density we in Bangladesh need mega tall skyscrapers, several major structure Engineers from major western companies praised simple skyscraper like Sky City to be a solution for Bangladesh. It would be a city within a city.

We also need to develop green buildings and implement large scale planting of trees on buildings like the French and Japanese are doing

It would reduce smog and increase air quality. Below is the ACROS Fukuoka

New rendering of the Project. The megatall Project at Purbachal starts at 9:50


The Broad Sustainable Building is cooperating with Bangladeshi partners to participate in Bangladeshi skyscraper projects. Here's a small demonstration of Sky City which is being proposed for being the model for their Mega tall project in Bangladesh.


It would be really nice to realize a tree wrapped mega skyscraper based on Sky City model

Given their already insane population density and rapidly decreasing landmass, Bangladesh's future survival probably depends on building up. That said, a project like sure looks like a vanity project. I hope Bangladesh finds a way to house their people beyond substandard slums and that urban rooftop farming really takes hold there.

the design is a little bit ridiculous. But I am happy, if we get any supertall in the city.

Thanks for your goods words of encouragement and your superb insight. It would be nice if you could check the video below which recommends building mega talls in places like Bangladesh, China & India



The relevant part goes like this:

Simon Lake from AECOM: Is the Sky City an inevitable response to the needs of the many from the East against designers from the west who has spent the last few years designing for the perceived desires of the rich few and if that is the case and given that 7 billion are going to be living in cities by 2050 and that most of those people are going to be from the poor end of the income spectrum rather than the rich. Does that make the future for tall buildings Sky City rather than glass and other fancy icons that we see at the moment.

Zhang Yue of BSB Changsha translator: I believe buildings over 100 stories tall, between 100 and 200 should be appropriate for China's large scale urbanisation, because there's not enough land for building and infrastructure...

Bob Lang, Director, Arup seemed relatively scared according to Ken Shuttleworth, Founder of Make Architects who encouraged the initiatives of Zhang Yue as he sees it pushing the boundaries of construction.

Panel moderator spokesman: I think the application in places that are a lot less sophisticated than China that are going to have huge population expansions into cities like Bangladesh , Pakistan, Nigeria places like that

Personally I think that developing buildings around 400m will become like building a ship of the current generation many of which are around 400m. As such it's inevitably also likely that skyscrapers construction would become outsourced to lower cost countries where sections and modules would be manufactured in prefabricated parts and shipped for assembly at various construction sites around the world just like the way major sections of bridges, ships, 600m oil platforms, ship to shore cranes and container, cargo, petroleum and passenger ships.
