High-rise construction rapidly developing around the world has predictably shifted from infill develop­ment to design and imple­mentation of entire cities consisting of skyscrap­ers only. An integrated approach to the develop­ment of large areas allows implementing the most daring architects’ ideas who effectively integrate modern technology into their projects and use the most advanced achieve­ments of science and tech­nology. With the increas­ing construction scale, specialists are faced with more complex and inter­esting tasks that inspire them to more risky and ambitious solutions.

In recent years, city-planning policies of large metropolitan cities have been marked by a trend towards building mixed-use high-rise quarters. New social and business centers provide economic stability and an inflow of necessary investment to entire cities and even countries. This is particu­larly evident in the rapidly develop­ing regions seeking to create not only cheap office buildings or standard residential houses, but also spaces pleasant for work and living.

The established trend towards con­tinuous optimization of all architec­tural and structural solutions as well as construction cost cutting reduce expenses and minimize efforts asso­ciated with high-rise construction around the world. Therefore, when an entire complex or a district consisting of skyscrapers is developed, it is pos­sible to work out urban infrastructure for all buildings in a certain terri­tory at once instead of laying utility systems to each building separately. First of all, it provides an opportunity to create a unified efficient transport system, thus significantly increasing the speed of transportation between objects and making the project more attractive from a commercial point of view.
