This Mile skyscraper and satellite islands, also come equipped with wind, solar, and algae farms to provide electricity.

The tower’s facade has meanwhile been designed to collect, filter and store water from the clouds to reduce the load on the plumbing system of pumping water to the top floors.

To tackle the question of vertical transport, the tower would make use of ThyssenKrupp’s cable-free, magnetic levitation elevators, which can run vertically and horizontally.

The Mile Tower will have multilevel sky lobbies where residents would share amenities such as shopping centers, restaurants, hotels, gyms, libraries, and health clinics.

If the plans are approved, the Mega-tall building is set to be completed by 2045.
