The Aeropolis 2001 was a proposed 500-story high-rise building over Tokyo Bay in Japan, envisioned by Obayashi Corporation. With a height of 2,001 metres, the mammoth structure would have been five times as tall as the former World Trade Center in New York City; the Aeropolis 2001 was proposed in 1989, amid a spate of similar projects for large buildings. All were proposed during the Japanese asset price bubble. According to a 1995 article, the corporation still had plans for the structure, gave a proposed height of 2,079 metres. At the time it proposed Aeropolis 2001, Obayashi Corp. proposed building a city on the moon by 2050. Newspapers have reported little on either proposal since 1995.
