Drop me off right at my door, please. Thank you, driver.


Thelonious_Cube

"There you go, sir. Tell your wife I said "Hi" "


Whiskey-Particular

“She also wanted me to ask about the child support payments. I know in the past you said you didn’t have your own car so you had no way to bring the money over but now…?”


Hallowed-Edge

Had an idea for an urban sci-fi story like that once, residential buildings had floors dedicated to shops, restaurants, and even rapid transit to reduce commuting times and increase density.


Whiskey-Particular

I’m more of a steampunk guy myself, but that same idea done in a steampunk setting would be cool as fuck too.


Hallowed-Edge

Steam trains in an enclosed station? Imagine the amount of smoke.


Whiskey-Particular

Well the roof would usually be open, kinda like an ornate metal lattice and there would be openings where the wall meets the roof typically.

People living in that building: "FML"


outlawedthrow

Rent there must be one dollar. I cannot imagine someone subjecting themselves to this otherwise.


Meanttobepracticing

According to another post in here there’s sound reduction to minimize noise.


outlawedthrow

It’s still 60 decibels though, every 20 min or so. Anything above 55 is already sound pollution and being subjected to it constantly can cause so many health problems


Meanttobepracticing

Certainly in a city the chances are you’re being subjected to that on a more or less daily basis anyway. I used to live right next to a metro station which had trains running about every 10min. After a while it became background noise and I didn’t even notice.


outlawedthrow

I don’t think you know what 60dB sounds like lmao, at least in my country if your car or motorcycle makes noise above 55 you get a significant fine. And when you’re inside you home you’re not supposed to be subjected to that noise.


kermityfrog

60 dB from what distance? Maybe it's 60 right beside the train but fades to 30 in the suites above/below?


Darryl_Lict

People get used to it. The El in Chicago runs adjacent to some apartments.


Anxious_Bandicoot756

Key word "adjacent" ...not THROUGH! Yikes


Gawdcent

"The station is located on the sixth to eighth floor of a 19-story residential building. It uses specialized noise reduction equipment to isolate station noise from the surrounding residences. Contrary to some misreporting, the station and building were constructed together as one whole structure. The railway was not run through the middle of an existing structure."


Dontbow1

The constant vibrations must be helping the building settle beautifully.


NotAHamsterAtAll

Yeah, I don't buy those 60 decibels at all...


IvFrozen

60 decibels is LOUD. I don't buy that dishwasher.


dallaschickensh1t

Depends what dishwasher you are referring to…. The first ever made??


SoItWasYouAllAlong

Oh, it \*is\* 60 dB. After all the reductions of passing through walls and dedicated insulation. It's 60 dB in people's homes. Noone minds living with an active dishwasher right next to their head, do they? Improvements in building technology are great, but at some point we'll still need to stop and discuss demographic strategy.


greychanjin

Press "X" to Doubt


MysteriousTruck6740

Quiet hours are 10 pm till 6 am. Except for the train running every 15 minutes, obvs.


silver_zilk

Awful idea


MisterScary_98

“How often does the train go by?” “So often that you won’t even notice it.”


ScronaldRump

“What train?”


Kelaifu

I visited this earlier this year, I wouldn't say it's silent but it's not really anything over the usual noise of a city like this. The floors below the actual station are mostly dedicated to documenting what a marvel this whole thing is, although I couldn't see anything that actually explained an actual reason to build it in the first place. There's probably more effect on the locals coming from the number of tourists (like me) who ride the train and then stand outside taking photos.


Thunder-_-Bear-

In what Chinese city is it located? Looks like Chongqing.


Kelaifu

Yeah, it's Chongqing.


Hallowed-Edge

Chongqing is the only one that uses a monorail for its metro, except for one track in Shanghai.


VanCityHunter

Looks more like the apartment building was built around the train tracks, but that's just semantics.


NkhukuWaMadzi

Wouldn't you love to have an apartment next to that?


AussieSpoon

Planning permission must have been a breeze. Or not.!


Crosspaws

"It's a creative way to solve overcrowding"..... I thought China already solved that problem with other "creative" ideas!


TheC0zmo

Downvoted, but sadly true.


Crosspaws

Lol I figured it would be....but it's honest. China does what it does for better or worse.


ParuTree

Usually worse.


Crosspaws

I mean, for SOME. But maybe better for the next born? 50/50 I suppose.....


BringALongBongAlong

Wait is that a covid joke jeez


Crosspaws

Lol no. Its a "we only permit one child and you'd better hope that one child is a boy or we throw it in the river" joke. Learn Chinese laws jeez


BringALongBongAlong

You seem a little offended, why?


Crosspaws

Lol did you even read the comments? I don't live in China. And I'm not a a new born girl in China, so I've no reason to be offended. In fact....YOU seem a little offended! Oh crap, are you one of those Chinese IT people that blocks any anti-chinese facts!? Lol my family worked in China for years so we're SUPER familiar. You're kinda like celebrities!!! Omg don't censor me please!


BringALongBongAlong

Now you seem very offended.


meelakie

No louder than a dishwasher working 996...


berdulf

Just like the Disney World hotel. They must feel so special when it wakes them up.


blinkssb

Seems safe to me ;)


Gwall2020

That would actually be kind of cool, for about a day


OddAntelope3801

IMAGINE THE NOISE POLUTION . I mean there is a limit to try to be cutting edge and savvy I guess…


Shuggy539

China gets more Blade Runner every day.


CanuckTheClown

All of the urbanized areas in China always look so dingy.


IggyJR

Everything in China is built to last 20 years, so it wont be a long term problem.


Yungboofman

People who have low credit score must live there

I'm sure the residents enjoy it just as much as they enjoy Socialism


KnightSolair420

i think what you mean is communism


HurrySpecial

They have both


cwriins

Just the usual disregard for human rights in China land... We need to build a metro line It happens to cross an apartment block? No worries let's just demolish one floor and we go through the middle, who's gonna complain, right?


[deleted]

cwriins

Thanks for taking the time to collect this. Funny enough, the first BI article points in the same direction of my comment: people don't want to move out and they are offered too little. Anyway, I hope we never end up being ruled by China as you might upvote me by then or wish more people were concerned with the usual practices there. But I really hope that my comment just gets downvoted until the end of the internet.


laundrycroissant

Density by any means necessary


RobWK159

Nah. Prefer me a good old fashioned metro to run around, alongside and above my residential building.


jsin1980

Make you shit you’re pants at 3am


Successful_Bath_7688

It doesn’t speak anything about the apartments digging in the land by about 5 cm, which posed a serious problem.


Maltbhr

😳 they must be having a very peaceful life


Bcmustain

That has to suck for living there. Great for rent, though!


Senpai_Himself

Just seeing this will keep me up at night


VolkerRacho

In Germany they do it with the [Autobahn ](https://www.reddit.com/r/de/comments/a6z464/die_schlange_autobahn%C3%BCberbauung_schlangenbader/)


spaceplanepilot2

Imagine you’re jacking off in the living room and a fucking train just roars by in front of you


Thelonious_Cube

"Honey, pick up your Legos - the train is coming"


meelakie

Disney did this decades ago.


Tuna_Warrior

What if like 47 people catch me Jacking off and I'm like "Hey, how u do'in"


taptapper

"No louder than a dishwasher". Uh huh. But how many people run their dishwasher every 10 minutes?


Kaiyukia

Rent: five fiddy


Walli98

my god the noise.


barleyhogg1

Meanwhile there are thousands of square miles of empty land around me....


SHMEEPism

imagine just taking a shower and every morning you and an entire train full of people just kinda awkwardly stare at each other


throwawayaccountyuio

Big deal Disney did this in the 70s


VectorChef

What in the blue hell ? As if that thing is whisper quiet …


Candy6132

"-Honey, bring me the toilet paper please! \-In a minute, the train is comming!"


47FsXMj

It must suck to live there, with the sound and noise everytime it passes through.


tubbsymalone

That must be so goddamn loud


wavesmcd

And I thought sleeping next to an elevator shaft was bad.

That is fucking awful. Imagine the sound living in that building. r/boringdystopia
