PUBLISHED Thu, October 06, 2016 - 12:13am EDT


The Shanghai Tower may be the world's second tallest building. But when it comes to speed, it's second to none. The 2,074 feet-tall skyscraper has installed a ground-breaking Mitsubishi elevator that travels at an incredible 20.5 meters per second. No elevator in the world is faster. Visitors are whisked up to the building's viewing tower by the lightning fast elevator, from where they have unrivaled views of the Bund. (CNN)
