Terrifying. A strong gust of wind sent an elevated worker platform flying back and forth through the air until it rammed into a window on the 91st floor of Shanghai's World Financial Center. Two workers were on the platform at the time, according to a post on Weibo, and while likely shaken to the bone, they walked away with only minor injuries.
The incident reportedly affected the 100 Century Avenue Restaurant, located on floors 91 through 93 of the WFC building. The restaurant has since confirmed the reports.
According to fanjian.net, the swinging platform crashed into window, causing the glass to break. All employees on the 91st floor were immediately evacuated.



News portal winshang.com said that the workers' platforms at the WFC are lifted higher than those at the Shanghai Oriental Pearl Tower.
A worker in the building, surnamed Qian, told reporters that some of the facilities located underground, including a Blue Frog restaurant, were closed.
“Our office is still working normally today,” she also added.
Management of the building refused to comment.

they should do something with those low-rises next to the big 3, not only they are short, but also bad quality for such a good location.

Oh don't worry, these are easier to demolish than taller apartment blocks. We'll be seeing these disappear over the next decade or two.

This building is really prodigious, but do not believe that eclipses most two other spectacular skyscrapers such as the WFC and Jin Mao Tower? The skyline is impressive with the 3 towers together, but 492 meters from the WTC and 420 meters from the Jin Mao you seem very small next to the incredible 632 meters do not think so?
I am particularly admirer of WFC's why I think that if you were somewhere else "single" and not so close to the spectacular Shanghai Tower would be much admired and highlight more (like the Jin Mao) such as happens in Taipei at Taipei 501 being alone seems even much higher.
