I ve watched on Discovery yesterday about the Tokyo Sky City which is going to be built (the project is started already) on Roppongi hills. It will be the world`s highest and biggest building ever - 1 kilometar high with 14 platforms, 30,000 inhabitans and capable of accepting 100,000 people each day.
This project could be a beggining of a revolution in a
way we live. On each platform there will be everything you need (shops, services, parks...) and the idea is to connect all the levels with high speed lifts and some kind of tunnels...
Maybe this is the beggining of a new concept of cities, something like in the game Beneath steel sky (all cyberpunk freaks will know what I am talking about) or like in that ____ movie Fifth element.
I certainly would not buy an apartment there no matter if it s going to be cheaper than regular because of huge risks involved (earthquakes, wind...).
