WORLD'S TALLEST SKYSCRAPER
Soon to be the tallest skyscraper in the world, the Shanghai World Financial Center now stands 77 stories tall — and it's growing a floor a week. But the job of building this monster is incredibly tough. Besides a near crippling fear of heights, Danny has to contend with the onset of frigid winter winds born on an approaching typhoon — all while hanging on the outside of the skyscraper, 1,000 feet in the air.
Premiere: July 24, 2007

It's the tallest if you don't count spires. Still though, the fact remains that it's NOT the tallest.

Observation/exhibition room at level 94, observation skybridge at level 97/~443m (inside the hole, bottom), observation deck at level 100/472m (level just above the hole).

Direct access with special elevators located in the corners.

Nothing, we're all just stunned by you, that's all.

The WFC is stunning, though.

That's structural: you can't lighten the bracing from the interior, being so close of the cladding, so it will be always noticeable at night
