A developer in China has built an entire 57-story building in just 19 days.
And as this time-lapse video shows the Mini Sky City building was put up brick by brick – at a rate of three full storeys a day – in Changsha, the capital of Hunan Province in south-central China.
The building has 800 apartments and enough office space for 4,000 people.
It was originally planned to be built up to a height of 220 storeys, but it was cut down because of concern it was too close to a nearby airport.
