Skyscraper 'Shanghai Tower' -
- a dozen records, but only the second highest

At the time of the last update of this article (November 2015), the Shanghai Tower has already been built. It is even officially put into operation. Only tourists are not allowed inside, and this skyscraper is accessible only for contemplation. Therefore, in this article we will talk about the Shanghai Tower as if it is not yet complete.

Construction began in 2008. Shanghai Tower is the last third building from the group of super-skyscrapers of Pudong District in Shanghai. April 11, 2013, it became the highest of them, when the frame was completed at the level of the 108th floor. The Shanghai Tower has overtaken Jin Mao and the Shanghai International Financial Center (WSFCC) tower. A little later, she "arranged" for the height of the TV Tower East Pearl , which is also nearby. The photo on the right is January 2013.

In January 2014, the builders of the Shanghai Tower "crossed" the line of 600 meters. At the moment, it already considers the second building in the world in height, although the interior decoration is not yet complete. Until 2016, it will be the highest skyscraper in mainland China, until the construction of the Pinyang skyscraper in Shenzhen city is over.

The Shanghai Tower has 121 floors, and 2 more floors are allocated for underground parking for 1800 cars. The Shanghai Tower will set many world records, and we will focus on the most interesting of them.

Records - the fastest lift

The Japanese company Mitsubishi Electric sets in the Shanghai Tower the most high-speed elevator with a speed of 18 meters per second. This elevator will beat the record of the skyscraper Taipei 101 in Taiwan, which is 16 meters per second.

This elevator will set and one more record - it will be the longest, beating the achievement of the Burj Khalifa tower in the UAE in the city of Dubai , which is 478.5 meters. What will be the length of the elevator in the Shanghai Tower is not yet clear, but it surely will be a record value.

Records - the highest hotel

Between the 84th and 110th floors will be the Four Seasons Hotel for 260 rooms, which will be the highest hotel on the planet.

It is true to say that it should be called the highest relative to the surface of the earth, since the really highest hotel is in Nepal in the village of Namche Bazar at an altitude of 3340 meters. It is called the Everest View, it stops travelers on the way to the top of Everest or trekkers following to the base camp of Everest .

Records - the most expensive skyscraper

The Shanghai Tower cost investors a record $ 4.2 billion. However, the Chinese are not used to it, one line of the maglev train Maglev cost them 1 billion.

Records - observation platform

The Shanghai Tower will give an opportunity to look at Shanghai from a height of 557 meters - this will be a new world record.

What in the end

We can not say anything about the price of the excursion to the Shanghai Tower, the restaurants inside, or the price of the rooms in the hotel. We will wait for the discovery and we will certainly rewrite this article to tell you about it.
