Watch: ‘Waterfall’ Skyscraper costs $120 per hour to run

by Purvai Dua

An artificial waterfall has been built onto a 121m-tall office skyscraper in Guiyang, capital of China’s Guizhou province. Don’t believe us, take a look here:

The record-breaking 108m long waterfall is man-made and took close to two years to complete.

The mesmerising structure, built by Ludi Industry Group, flows on the glass exterior of the Liebian International Building and uses recycled water from basement storage tanks, and then pushed to the top of the building by four giant pumps before re-emerging as a waterfall.

The waterfall has been turned on to its full glory only six times so far. And this partly bacause of the massive operating cost involved — the price of powering the pumps is about $117 an hour!
