Is this the Shape of Skyscrapers of Tomorrow?

The ‘SkyFarm’ is a concept green building and brainchild of Toronto based scientist Gordon Graff; the 58-storey building would grow crops in Toronto’s downtown theatre district. The building would cover 2.7 million square feet of human-habitable floor space and cover a massive 8 million square feet of arable farm space that could provide enough food for 35,000 people every day.

    Thanks, but I read that three are in the planning phase(one in NY). Maybe not this one but similar and was looking for a date.
