In this world today, rich countries are planning to build extraordinary structures that nobody would have thought of years and years ago.
Here are the 10 astonishing building plans that were never really constructed.

The Chicago Spire

ChicagoSpire-005

This was an ambitious plan by an Irish developer Garrett Kelleher that was never completed because of a financial issue that left him millions in debt.

Sky City in Changsha

In 2003, a company in China started to build a structure that would become the tallest in the world, but the construction stopped just a few days after it begun because of safety issues. The location has since become a fishing farm for locals.

Shimizu Mega-City Pyramid

This structure would have been a city inside the densely populated city of Tokyo. The plan was to build a structure to house some people from the city’s increasing population. The project will not be completed until they develop a special kind of lightweight materials that can withstand a 2,004-meter-high building.

Fourth Grace

The style of the structure was called by its designer as “the cloud.” The construction has never started because of its unbelievable cost. The people in Liverpool, England must be so disappointment, or not.

The Mile High Building

This was a rather ambitious plan by Frank Lloyd Wright in 1956 to build a structure that would shoot a mile high into the skies of Chicago. No country has ever built a building that high up until today.

This project was supposed to be completed two years after its construction in 2007, but because of credit issues, it was stopped. The project was officially cancelled in 2009.

The Minerva Building

The plan was to build a structure that would boost London’s status as a financial capital of the world. The project did not materialize because of planning issues.

Bike Lane in the Sky

This would have been awesome had it been completed. The plan was to build a bike lane crossing between two tall towers facing Copenhagen’s harbor. Will people ever use it? That was the question city officials were asking that no one can seem to provide an answer.

Portsmouth FC Stadium in Portsmouth

They love football in England and the country was planning to build a mega structure that would host 36,000 fans. Sadly, the construction never started because of the economic issue in 2008.

There’s a vacation in Hawaii. And then there’s a vacation in Hawaii with the greatest experience of having a whale jump right in front of you. Talk about going on the best vacation ever. These two lucky paddle boarders had the greatest magical experience of having an orca follow them around and well, breach on their peaceful break.

The paddle boarders, a guy and a girl, were off the west coast of Maui when the orca, or humpback whale, decided to breach and make an appearance right in front of them. The said area is very famous for the presence of whales and whale sightings by tourists. This event happens a lot during the winter months. There are more than 10,000 whales that spend their winters at the areas of Maui, Lana’i, Kaho’olawe and Molokai. They reside in these areas for mating and calving season.

A new report recently surfaced on the internet claiming that about 60% of the plastic debris found on the ocean actually originated from five Asian countries namely, China, Indonesia, Thailand, Philippines, and Vietnam.

Perhaps even more disconcerting is the fact that, based on the study released by McKinsey and Co.’s and Ocean Conservancy, most of the plastic dumped into the ocean actually comes from land – not from fishing boats or cruise ships.
