Video: Test tower at Rottweil, Germany
Landmark development to be built in south of Germany
The 21st century is the world's inaugural metropolitan century, with cities prospering in the new global economic order.
Today, 600 cities account for 60% of the world's GDP.
Taking into account current construction trends of high-rise buildings, the list of the world's tallest buildings will change rapidly in the coming years, with the majority of new constructions in emerging markets.
Building heights of 300 to 800 metres will change the skylines of metropolises in the future and the demands on people and technology will grow at the same rate.
Currently, over 180 buildings under construction will rise above 250m, of which about 50 buildings will be completed every year.
In the mid-rise market, there are currently about 800 buildings under construction which will rise to over 150m, and approximately 270 of these buildings will be completed this year.
in order to meet these continued challenges, ThyssenKrupp is to construct a landmark test tower in Rottweil, Germany.
