A CHINESE firm has built a 350ft artificial waterfall on the side of a SKYSCRAPER – but it’s so expensive it’s rarely turned on.
Incredible footage shows water cascading down the side of the 397 foot tall building in Guiyang, south-west China.
In the sun the pricey gimmick – which costs £89 per hour to run – creates a rainbow at the front of the high-rise.
Four large pumps are required to lift the water from a tank to create the 350ft fall which is part of the towering Liebian Building.
Designed as a tourist attraction the waterfall is managed by Guizhou Ludiya Property Management Co., MailOnline reports.
It is said to use rain water or recycled tap water to operate.
A spokesperson for the property, Mr Cheng, told Kanka News: “Our building has a four-storey underground water storage and drainage system, from which the water is pumped and recycled.”
He said due to the cost the waterfall is only turned on for special events and runs between 10 and 20 minutes to save electricity.
One local told the paper: “It’s quite novel.
“If you do it on a hot day, it will feel very comfortable. It is still very eye-catching.”
