The firm Broad Sustainable Building previously constructed a prefab 30-story building in 15 days (verified by timelapse video), but for Sky City, they have an even more aggressive schedule: 90 days to build 2,750 feet into the air. Once completed, the building will be a place for people to both live and work, with recreational facilities, theaters, a school, and a hospital all within the structure.
