Details are sketchy, but unnamed, apparently relevant Chinese officials have decided that Sky City, er, hasn't filled out the proper paperwork to begin construction. Now, if you were planning to build the world's tallest structure, you might think that you'd make sure to get all the proper permits ahead of time. And Broad Group, the force behind Sky City states that they indeed have completed every such form.
Clearly, somebody around here isn't quite telling the whole truth. But a delay in the construction of Sky City might not be the worst thing in the world. A prefab building that is hoped to reach its full height of 2,749 feet after only four months of construction has plenty of risk involved in its creation.
