Will this be the first block in a Megacity?

For those of you who know of the dystopian future depicted in 2000AD the following image might look familiar. Rather than any fictional universe though, this building will soon be real.

Dubbed “Sky City One”, plans have been approved for a Chinese corporation to build this 220 storey self-contained city – and they intend to put it together in just 90 days!

When finished, the structure will be the tallest man has ever built, will house 30,000 people and facilities will include a school, a hospital and undoubtedly many shops. Yes, folks. It seems the future really is here.

If you’re interested in learning more about the project, there’s a good explanation available at The National Post.

Would you want to live here? Do you think it can be built in 90 days? When will the Judges take over? Answers in the comments.

  1. Hey there! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any problems with hackers? My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing months of hard work due to no backup. Do you have any solutions to prevent hackers?

    • We haven’t (fingers crossed) had any problems with hackers. Regular database backups and a good password are our defences at the moment.
