    3 months ago chian announced it will build the huighest scyscraper in the world in 90 days, and that it will be ready by march or so.., so far did any one hear about where the project is now? have they actally started to do it, or was it just a lie to attract attention to the company?

    A construction company yesterday revealed plans to build the world's tallest skyscraper - in just three months.

    Sky City in Changsha, south-east China, will be a 220-storey structure standing at an incredible 2,749ft (838m).

    It will house 17,400 people and also boast hotels, hospitals, schools and office space with occupants using 104 high-speed lifts to get around.

    China-based Broad, which started out making air-conditioning systems in the Eighties, will employ 3,000 workers for the project.

    Spread over 1million square metres and be made up of 200,000 tonnes of steel, Sky City will be a mini town when completed.

    It will have more than 5,000 residential properties playing home to 17,400 residents as well as a hotel for 1,000, a hospital, five schools and office space with overall capacity standing at 31,000.

    Sky City is expected to cost around £400 million, significantly less than the £940 million Burj Khalifa which took more than five-years to build.

    Broad is still awaiting final approval from the Chinese government, but it is hoping the project will get off the ground towards the end of December and be completed before April 2013.
