Construction is underway on what is possibly China's most unique and unusual super tall skyscraper project. Named the Farmer's Apartments, the project is located in rural Huaxi town which lies within Wuxi city limits and is the brainchild of the local government as an urban experiment.

The plan is to move the local farmers into the supertall, super-cool looking tower and then reclaim back land currently used for housing and return it to farming. It also shows how far the country has come in barely twenty years having gone from housing farmers in wooden huts with poor if any sanitation to building supertall buildings to accommodate them.

When completed the tower will stand at 328 metres with 74 storeys, which when compared to the current trend of seeing which country can build a skyscraper taller than the legendary Tower of Babel and shake hands with god aliens or whatever else is up there isn't all that spectacular but, when considered it will be standing on its own in green fields it can definitely be called iconic.

In keeping with its unusual location, the design of the tower is rather dramatic and eye catching, at is base the fully glazed entrance ways which feature at the front and back of the project are almost petal like in appearance.

Three separate, glazed cylindrical wings rise above the base and are linked by large sky bridges, these towers continue up to lipstick style peaks. Running through the centre of the towers is a central core which will presumably house important thing like lifts and other essential machinery.

This is topped by a fully glazed ball that will house a top class revolving restaurant which when lit up at night might possibly resemble the worlds largest disco ball.

Not only will the towers provide new housing for the poor farmers having to resettle in the luxury tower but there will also be office spaces, a 1,500 seater banqueting hall, exhibition space, skygardens, the all important shopping spaces, and when its home time and the plough just seems to lack the sophistication to arrive home in style in, a helipad is situated on the top of the tower.
