Building a Vertical City in 90 days

The future of vertical cities isn’t far off… “Once completed, Sky City will be contain low-income housing, luxury condos, a hospital, a school, and retail space.” They’ll achieve this by using prefabricated modular construction (building large chunks of it off-site and fitting them together like Lego blocks). To hit the 90-day deadline, they’re aiming for 5 stories a day. The same company has built a 30-story building in 15 days (see video).
