Представлен дизайн нового самого высокого небоскрёба

Новую мегавысотку спроектировали те же люди, что сделали нынешнего рекордсмена среди небоскрёбов – дубайскую башню Burj Khalifa, вымахавшую на 828 метров. «Штык», который возведут в Саудовской Аравии, будет на 173 м выше «Халифы». Его запланированный рост – 1001 метр.

New world record for fastest lift

0
It may well be the tallest building on the planet, but the Burj Khalifa can no longer boast the fastest lifts in the world. That record has now been clinched by the new 1 080 metre/minute lift in the 212.75-metre-high G1 Tower being built by Hitachi in Hitachinaka City, Ibaraki Prefecture in Japan. This will also be the tallest lift research facility in the world.

Record breakers

No great surprise here. The Burj Khalifa burst onto the international scene at the beginning of this year with a massive fanfare, fireworks and festivities at the dawn of the new decade after a much anticipated build. The fanfare wasn't without merit: the building smashing almost every record - and by a considerable margin. What's not commonly known is that the Burj actually bagged several world-topping records when it was opened (see below), and set new heights for others to attempt to surpass.
