glass-bottomed skywalk opens along the edge of jinmao tower’s 88th floor in shanghai

  

 

 

a glass-bottomed skywalk that runs along the 88th floor of jinmao tower in shanghai, is opened for business. measuring approximately 60-meters long, and 1.2-metres wide-from the edge of the building, the open-air pathway offers any daring individual to take in the views of the bustling chinese city without the security of a hand rail (it is considered to be the highest hand-rail free platform in the world); strapped to safety through a harness.

designed by SOM, the skyscraper is considered the third tallest building in china standing at approximately 420-meters high. the walkway is a recent addition to the metal-and-glass structure that reflects the city’s constantly changing skies. for anyone looking for an adrenaline rush, this might be your next destination. visits to the ledge require you to sign a waiver to prove you can handle the height. it costs $43 USD to enjoy the jinmao tower’s observation deck, and $18 USD for those willing to venture out onto the glass-bottomed skywalk that has the capacity to handle a total of 15 individuals, and two employees at once.
