Broad Sustainable Building had intended to build a 666-meter (2,185 ft) skyscraper, but the local government wanted the world’s tallest building, hence the current plans. The company has constructed 20 buildings in China using the same method and has several franchise partners globally. It has a planned helipad at a height of 739.8 m (2,427 ft) above ground. If Sky City One is built as planned, it would be tallest building in the world until the Jeddah Tower in Jeddah is complete (currently under construction, planned to be opened in 2019), with 202 floors. The construction plan calls for it to be built from pre-fabricated units constructed on site in an unprecedentedly short period of 90 days. BSB’s plan is to assemble 95% of the building in its factory before any excavation takes place at the construction site. The fabrication process is due to take around six months before the actual construction begins.
