The revolving floor (resteraunt) is not only a great place to eat, it is also a hotspot for local BASE jumpers.

It also has an infamous past:

I heard about the walkway collapse. It was on a TV show. I didn't realize that this was the same building. I didn't realize that the death toll was so high either. I thought it was only 50. Hopefully that served as a reminder to not cut corners when building things like this.
