Baku, February 8, AZERTAC
Architects want to build a mile-high skyscraper in the Japanese city of Tokyo, two times the size of the world’s current tallest building. The aptly titled “Sky Mile Tower” is proposed as part of sustainable Tokyo development plan till 2045, according to Russia Today.
The tower would measure 5,577 feet (1,700 meters) in height, roughly double the size of Dubai’s Burj Khalifa, which comes in at 2,722 feet (830 meters).
The colossal structure is the centrepiece of a “futuristic mega-city” outlined in an initiative called “Next Tokyo,” which creates a new vision for Tokyo Bay, Architectural Digest reported.
If approval is granted, the tower will house 55,000 people and multiple shopping centers, restaurants, hotels and other amenities as well as operating as a public transport hub.
