I found this cool infographic on the world fastest elevators. The CTF currently has the fastest, but does anyone know when the observation deck is scheduled to open?

This diagram is indeed very intersting. Would like to know the maximal speed for an elevator, before humans feel really uncomfortable or sick.

^ If its true that the ONE WTC elevators travel at 10.2 M/S (which I believe they do) then I would say that is probably around the maximum speed for elevators because during that elevator ride my ears and everybody else ears pop. I think that elevators running at 10.2 to 12 or 13 M/S is fast enough for supertalls maybe not for mega talls.

Thank you Oasis for keeping to give us junkies our dose xD

How is the occupation rate now for this one since it's not yet completely finished (interior) right? The roof is also supposed to have a garden am I wrong?
