you have pee hands: They did a great job of taking pictures that made that building look quite ordinary.
Day_Old_Dutchie: Just think of all the thousands of identical-looking Chinese bureaucrats obsessively working away in that building busily figuring out new ways of controlling their media or loaning money to the US, on workstations with bootleg copies of MS Windows.
ChrisDe: The photos were so close that it was hard to get an idea of the scale.
halmot: 1km long hallways? I can't be the only one thinking Chair Races!!!
factoryconnection: Parking must be an unholy pain in the ass for that place. The Pentagon, even with its dedicated Metro stop, bus stops, organized slugging and incentivized car-pooling is painful when it comes to parking.ChrisDe: The photos were so close that it was hard to get an idea of the scale.I found it on GoogleMaps. Those are full-sized sports stadia next to it.
FuturePastNow: That sure as hell doesn't look like it's a kilometer long. Perhaps it has huge windows.
SAN66: Really?I thought the Boeing Everett Factory was the largest building in the world. It has it's own weather patterns. Maybe if they whittle that down to largest "office" building limited to X floors?http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_largest_buildings_in_the_world
Bondith: They article mentioned floor space. BEF might be largest by volume.
ronaprhys: Is this in one of those Chinese cities they build to inflate their GDP but that have no people in them?
Nightjars: I can easily build the world's largest office building by floor space by building a fairly large cube and putting in floors that are 3" apart. Just sayin'. Too bad only mice will be able to work there.
Evil Mackerel: Good , we like targets that we can see from orbit.
stuffy: is only beaten by -the United States' Department of Defense behemoth, the Pentagon.Betting there will be a "useless" addition built on very soon.
JackieRabbit: But it is not the world's second largest building. It's not even close. Target's import warehouse in Lacey, WA is both in terms of usable space and footprint. ShortList FAIL
Tsar_Bomba1: Looks empty...
factoryconnection: I found it on GoogleMaps. Those are full-sized sports stadia next to it.
Frankenstorm: It looks so rectangular. I mean, how much more rectangular could it be?
