China is planning to build the tallest skyscraper in the world in just 90 days. If everything goes according to plan, a 2,749 foot skyscraper will be hanging out with the clouds by the end of March. The skyscraper, dubbed “Sky City One,” will contain businesses as well as apartments.
Seven million people are sardine-canned into a mere 1,108 square kilometers of Hong Kong, comprised of 6,588 high rise buildings (several hundred more than in New York City).
