To maintain equilibrium between the two dominant factors i.e. to mange the concentration of population, and at parallel to cater for their environmental needs the Japanese construction company Takenaka has evolved a design proposal for constructing Sky City 1000, 'a super high-rise, huge multilevel city with a height of a kilometer'. The design concept of Sky City 1000was introduced in 1989, and the concept has gained worldwide popularity, and many urban developers and planners are looking forward towards the success of the plan, 'lot of expectations are around, planners are highly optimistic about the success'. As the 21st century is in progress, there are increasing expectations for the implementation and execution of the plan.
Sky City 1000 is based on total floor area of 2000 acres, and has an elevation of 1,000 meters, the structure of the Sky City 1000 comprises of 14 concave dish-shaped, aerial bases called Space Plateaus piled one upon the other, and viewed as perfect super high-rise city. The structure has been conceptualized to adjust and support residences, offices, commercial facilities, schools, theaters. The tower has the capacity to offer accommodation to 35000 people, and more than hundred thousand people as employees will perform their respective task. Different systems have been employed by the construction authority to ensure the safety and protection of the city, and in this regard latest security focused technologies have been used to maintain the comfortable state of the city, and offer maximum possible cover to residents. The technology employed by Takenaka has attracted many investors and commercial giants. The concept of Sky City 1000 was launched by Takenaka with the cooperation of Shizuo Harada of ESCO Co Ltd.
The Sky City 100 is innovative and modernized version of regional and town planning, the city has modified concepts and innovative plans invested which intends to offer intensive functions and suitable natural environment. The newly designed and fabricated projects seek compatibility with the environment, and the project of Sky City 1000 has been launched after ensuring the harmony of the plan with the natural environment. The functions of the project modules are like those of a medium sized city, which successfully incorporates housing, commerce, education, and recreation. The planned city of high elevation offers blend of architecture, transportation, communications, and energy.
The core features of the city tower includes,
