Chinese Not Impressed by World’s Future Tallest Building

July 24 (Bloomberg) -- As recently as July 1, cattle apparently grazed in the fields intended for the world’s tallest skyscraper in the rural outskirts of Changsha, in China’s Hunan province. That wasn’t the original plan: Sky City, as the concept is known, was scheduled for completion earlier this year after a mere 90 days of construction.

Understandably, few people inside or outside China believed such a deadline was possible. It wasn’t. Work never even started on the project, which was delayed in part by the government-approval process.
