Long Description:
This building looks like a needle stuck through a doughnut. It is actually a tower with a "Y" shaped footprint that tapers as it rises. At 1100' there is a 7 storey section known as the Skypod. At 1465' we reach the top of the main shaft of the building where there is a 2 storey section known as the Space Deck. This is is highest public observation gallery in the world. On top of the shaft sits an antenna which brings the total height of the structure to 1815'5". On a windy day the observation deck may sway up to 2 feet, while the top of the antenna may sway up to 6 feet. Since the building was completed it has only moved 1" off plumb.
