Shanghai Tower Opens World’s Fastest Elevator

The Shanghai Tower may be the world’s second tallest building, but when it comes to speed, its elevator is second to none. 

Completed in 2015, Asia’s tallest building surpasses the Shanghai World Financial Center and the Jin Mao Tower in Shanghai’s Pudong district. 

Estimated to cost $2.4 billion, the 2,074 feet-tall skyscraper boasts an elevator that travels at an incredible 67 feet per second… faster than Usain Bolt (40 ft/sec), but slower than a cheetah (95 ft/sec). 

After the speedy trip to the top, visitors enjoy unrivaled views of the Bund.
