It looks like Dubai's Burj Khalifa is about to get dethroned as the world's tallest building—by a 838-meter monstrosity that will be built in only 90 days.
It's called the "Sky City," and it will be built by a company called BSB "that specializes in erecting pre-fabricated buildings" quickly.
It seems unthinkable that a skyscraper, let alone one that will be the world's tallest (the Burj Khalifa is only 828-meters tall) can be constructed in 90 days, but that isn't stopping Broad Sustainable Building (BSB) from gunning for the record. To compare, the Burj Khalifa took five years to construct.
If the name BSB rings a bell, that's because was the same company behind the construction of the 30-story hotel in 15 days from earlier this year.
I'm just really, really failing to see what the rush is here. Sky ain't going anywhere, guys. At least, it isn't going anywhere until China builds a giant shield over the country to keep everyone in.
