Beijing’s Megacomplex a City Within a City

Pl Home F A new apartment complex in Beijing provides one way to avoid the bad air and traffic jams: Don’t go outside. From Wired Magazine:

The megacomplex is defined by a ring of eight 21-story towers, each with an upper-floor promenade and lounge, plus skywalks that connect to adjacent buildings. Galleries, cafés, bars, and shops will line these public passages. With its 82-floor hotel, the project boasts a total interior space of 2.4 million square feet, and the 15-acre grounds feature everything from a skateboard park to tai chi platforms. And, since this is a 21st-century Eden, elaborate water-recycling and geothermal-power systems may rack up enough eco-points for a Gold LEED certification.
