Tallest building in the world

An interesting fact is that the tallest building in the world, Taipei 101, is located in China.

The Taipei 101 skyscraper has 116 floors, of which 101 are above the ground and 15 stories deep.

The building has 61 lifts including two double-decker bus-sized lifts. The maximum elevator speed is 1010 meters per minute.

The 730 tonne stabilizer is located on the 87th floor, stabilizing the tower against earthquakes, typhoons, and wind. It reduces the giant's movements by 40%.

Each lift is designed with an aerodynamic body, pressurized and emergency braking systems, and the world's first triple stage anti-slip system. The cost of one elevator is over $ 2 million.

The 89th floor has an internal observation gallery, and the exit to the outside is located on the 91st floor.

Interesting fact - tower design and specifications are all based on the number "8", which is a lucky number in traditional Chinese culture. Taipei 101 is now the tallest building in the world as measured by rooftop.

The final section of the spire was pinned in place on October 9, 2003, making Taipei 101 the winner for the tallest building in the world. It is the first and only skyscraper to be built in a very active earthquake zone.

The mall, Taipei 101 Alley, officially opened in November 2003, is half a kilometer above the ground.

The external construction elevators and elevator shaft were completely dismantled at the end of February 2004.

Most of the design, layout and planning aspects were coordinated with the feng shui masters.

Taipei 101 holds 3 titles for the tallest building in the world: tallest skyscraper to the top, tallest to the roof and tallest to the residential part.

It is one of the few buildings in the world equipped with double-deck elevators.

Taipei Mayor Ma Ying-jeou secured the gold bolt at its opening ceremony, which was held on October 17, 2003.

The total cost for the construction of the building was $ 1, 600, 000, 000.
