Xian Min Zhang’s latest building, by Broad Sustainable Construction, is a 57-floor, 2-million-square-foot skyscraper constructed with energy-efficient blocks.

While a 57-floor skyscraper is nothing special, the speed at which it was constructed is…

Broad Sustainable Construction reportedly built three floors per day on the way to the company completing the building in 19 days, or 456 hours.

Zhang reports the skyscraper has 800 apartments, 19 10-meter-high atriums, office space for 4,000 people, and is tightly constructed in order to create an environment with 99.9% pure air inside of the structure.

Of course, this helps building residents escape from the pollution-ridden air they encounter outside, and the skyscraper’s energy efficient blocks are estimated to save 12,000 tons of CO2 emission compared to a similar building.
