Japan is planning to build a Sky Mile Tower which they claim to be double the size of Burj Khalifa. Burj Khalifa is the world’s tallest skyscraper building ever made by any human in the history of mankind. Shiekh Khalifa inaugurated the Burj Khalifa in 2010 and it ever since holds the record of being the tallest building in the whole world. However, Japan is taking the competition to a whole new level. Recently Japan has proposed to build a skyscraper that will double the size of Burj Khalifa. The Sky Mile tower is proposed to the Japanese Government for approval. The construction of the building has not begun yet. Engineers have proposed a length of about 1,700 m (5,577 ft) in size. The design of the tower is named Next Tokyo 2045.
So, the tower will be double the size of Burj Khalifa and almost 5 times bigger in length than the Eiffel tower in Paris, if completed. The tower will have a capacity of about 55,000 people at once. Moreover, The tower will have massive 421 floors in total which could accommodate a high number of individuals capacity. Engineers estimate that if everything goes well the Sky Mile Tower will be completed in 2045. Architects at Kohn Pedersen Fox and Leslie E. Robertson Associates proposed the project.

Japan is planning to develop its nation to fight the next generation of the climate crisis. Japan is a vulnerable nation in terms of geographical position. Although multiple catastrophes have struck Japan it still remains intact. To fight off this climate vulnerability, Japan came up with the idea of building a small city within a single skyscraper. The tower is one of the first initiatives for the plan Next Tokyo 2045.
The tower will act as a small city in itself. As it will have almost all the facilities including things such as Gym, Shopping centers, Hotels, Hospitals, Schools, and many more. The community built within the tower will serve a whole population of individuals. Moreover, the architects are making the tower in a hexagonal shape to minimalize the effect of wind.
