It seems there is no limit for the height of skyscrapers these days.
摩登大楼再创新高!

China's tallest skyscraper(最高的楼), the Shanghai Tower, is expected to be open(开业) for business soon.

The 632-metre tall tower is second(第二) only to(仅次于) Dubai's Burj Khalifa, the world's tallest building.

A high-speed elevator has been installed to take visitors to a viewing platform(观光平台) on the 119th floor in just 55 seconds.

At its maximum speed(最快的速度), the lift would travel at 18 meters a second.

The 126-storey building will become a new landmark(地标) in Lujiazui, the financial and trade zone in Shanghai.
