China's Broad Sustainable Building Company is at it again. After nixing its original Sky City plan, BSB still astounded the design and construction world by recently building a 57-story building in just 19 days! 

Watch the time lapse video below, and ask yourself how excited you would be to be riding your bicycle from your bedroom to your office the day after the work was completed. With three stories completed daily, one might naturally consider safety as a concern. But BSB says sustainability and safety were priorities, not just savings. It adds that the new tower's benefits include: 9.0 earthquake resistance; high thermal efficiency due to economical maintenance costs; indoor air quality nine times purer than outdoor air; and not surprisingly, low construction costs.  

Still skeptical? Watch the short, time-lapse video below and prepare to be amazed:
