Report: China to Construct 220 Story Building in 90 Days — Then Take Another Year to Convince Anybody to Go Inside It

The Obama administration believes China’s “vastly superior” infrastructure is something the U.S. should be emulating. I disagree.

China’s “stimulus” building projects are faulty enough at normal speed, so I can only imagine how unsafe they’ll be after having been put together in a hurry:

According to its engineers, this will be the tallest skyscraper in the world by the end of March of 2013. Its name is Sky City, and its 2,749 feet (838 meters) distributed in 220 floors will grow in just 90 days in Changsha city, by the Xiangjiang river. Ninety days!

It’s not a joke. According to the construction company, the skyscraper will be built in just 90 days at the unbelievable rate of five floors per day.
Foundation work is beginning at the end of the month, once the Chinese authorities give the final go ahead to the project.

For construction they’ll be using a new state-of-the-art material called “Erector Set.”

I’d drive down a winding mountain road with Lindsay Lohan behind the wheel before I’d go in that building.
