You know now that you mention it, it kinda does! Probably because of the corners of the building.

The spikes, the lights glowing in the dark, the 'massiveness' overlooking everything (well, almost everything now)...
It all says: "Don't mess with me kid..."

Yes, but now stopped by the cranes on one side, and by the pouring of lateral columns too.

Especially with the large Typhoon headed your way.

But after the Typhoon, the skies should be crystal clear for some photography!

dude obviously they arent goin to work in a typhoon. They've already evacuated 1.8 million ppl. I wonder how this building is going to hold up in 165mph per an hour winds. Good thing they didn't open the hole yet.

第一高楼"安全摇摆" 可抗13级台风

新华网上海频道9月19日消息:
昨天13时45分,当记者到达环球金融中心时,天上正下着瓢泼大雨,而施工现场内正是一片防台风的繁忙景象。安检人员在400米以上高空,进行“上海第一高度”的防台安检。
一位刚从94层下来的工作人员告诉记者,尽管下面大风暴雨,可环球金融中心90层以上反而没有明显地感觉到风。“有没有觉得大楼在摇晃?”记者问。他笑笑说:“其实大楼每天都在晃,只不过以现在的风力,摇晃的程度还不足以让人感觉出来。”据透露,环球金融中心的摇摆幅度在1米左右,按照我国有关标准,可抗13级台风。
记者了解到,环球金融中心在设计时已经考虑到了抗风因素。除了100层和101层之间的梯形风口可以减小台风的影响外,最关键的是90层内安装了两组价值千万元以上的阻尼器。这就好比给大楼安了两颗“定风丸”,使大楼始终保持平衡。据说,价格不菲的阻尼器在上海高层建筑中鲜有使用。
17时,在对环球金融中心进行最后一次防台安检后,安保部的赵经理说道:“去买些点心、火腿肠之类的食品,送给留守的工作人员。今天晚上的任务还艰巨着呢。”

Typhoon Wipha slams into China's east coast

4 hours ago

SHANGHAI (AFP) — Typhoon Wipha, potentially the most destructive storm in a decade, slammed into China's eastern coast early Wednesday packing winds of 45 metres (150 feet) per second, state media said.

The typhoon struck south of China's financial capital Shanghai at 2:30 am (1830 GMT Tuesday), the Xinhua news agency reported.

Millions of people have been forced to leave their homes along China's east coast, where many schools and offices were ordered to remain closed as flood officials warned residents to prepare for the worst.

Fears the typhoon would hit Shanghai, a city of 17 million people, triggered mass evacuations and disrupted the women's World Cup.

Instead, the heavily populated neighbouring province of Zhejiang bore the first brunt of the typhoon, which weakened slightly before making landfall.

Two million residents of Zhejiang province were evacuated and nearly 40,000 ships were ordered back to harbour on Tuesday, Xinhua said.

As the storm approached Tuesday, the head of the China Meteorological Administration, Zheng Guoguang, warned that global warming was resulting in stronger and more lethal typhoons.

"Due to global warming, the number of strong typhoons is increasing and more areas are vulnerable to the attack by typhoons," Xinhua quoted Zheng as saying at a conference in Beijing.

Matches at the women's World Cup have been postponed and a fixture between Norway and Ghana scheduled for Wednesday has been relocated from Shanghai to neighbouring Hangzhou, about three hours away by car.

However, a Tuesday evening match between Nigeria and the United States went ahead.

In China's southeast, the Fujian provincial government evacuated more than 160,000 people.

State television footage Tuesday showed huge waves hitting eastern shores while soldiers helped local residents move to temporary shelters amid pouring rains.

Taiwan authorities curbed air travel and closed its stock exchange, while offices and schools in several northern areas of the island, including the capital Taipei, were shut as many coastal residents were moved to higher ground.

Wipha -- a woman's name in Thai -- had also led to school cancellations in Shanghai.

Typhoons regularly hit China, Taiwan, Japan and South Korea towards the end of August and in September.

Earlier this month Typhoon Fitow hit Japan, killing seven people, while on Sunday Typhoon Nari killed at least nine in South Korea.

Amazing photos. It makes Jin Mao look much smaller than it actually is.
