In those pictures by Dean87, the shots are from so far away the curve of the Earth covers up the bottom 100 metres or so, causing Shanghai Tower and SWFC to look 3 times the height of the other buildings instead of twice. Goes to show how distance only complement's this building's height.

40 mph???

wow that's impressive. In theory, it reaches the top of the tower in 35 seconds (without the acceleration and deceleration).

But still, aren't these elevators kinda risky for the health of the people?

well people do survive sitting in a space rocket accelerating, so 40mph shouldn't be a problem, just if you travel to the top be sure to have a gum with you.
