If the plans are accepted – ‘Sky Mile Tower’ would be surrounded by a series of man-made hexagonal islands, that are designed to protect Tokyo from flooding and act as foundation for homes for around half a million people.
The tower and satellite islands also come equipped with wind, solar and algae farms to provide electricity and its façades have been designed to collect, filter and store water from the elements of the surrounding weather.
All vertical population movement will be make use of Thyssen Krupp’s cable-free, magnetic levitation elevators, which can run vertically and horizontally.
Assuming it is approved, the man-made marvel is set to be completed by 2045.
