The futuristic Sky Mile Tower will reach twice the height of the Burj Khalifa, currently the world's tallest building.

Plans show that the 5,577 feet-high Sky Mile Tower will stand in Tokyo Bay with a cluster of islands at its feet, dwarfing everything else on the city's already soaring skyline.

It will offer multi-level open-air sky decks at every 320 metres and shared public facilities including shops, restaurants, hotels, libraries, gyms and health clinics.

Up to 55,000 residents will be housed, with lifts running vertically between the top and bottom of each of the building's five "residential zones" and horizontally within each zone, forming a looping lift system, providing service to and from the different sky lobbies.

Melbourne’s architectural landscape is a wonderful juxtaposition of modern and Victorian architecture. Although the CBD has been peppered with many skyscrapers, its historical structures have won Melbourne the title of “Australia’s most European city”.
