Think that 828 meter high tower Burj Khalifa is high enough? Japanese are planning to built twice as tall tower at the south-east of Japan which will house 55.000 people.
The project named Sky Mile Tower aims to build 1700 meters high building in Japan. Project is developed by architects from Kohn Pedersen Fox and Lesle E. Robertson companies. If everything goes right, the building should be finished in 2045. The tower itself will be followed by complex of smaller buildings as well as artificial islands where is planned to build wind and solar power stations and algae farms which alltogether should ensure sustainability for this complex when it comes to energy consumption.
