Sao Paulo’s glass-floor lookout puts fear of heights to the test

One of the biggest cities in the world now boasts a birds-eye view of its Brazilian concrete jungle.

Sao Paulo’s tallest building, the Mirante do Vale, now features a glass-floor on its 42nd level that is putting a fear of heights to the test.

Called the Sampa Sky, this dizzying lookout will open to the public on August 8 but a select few were treated to a special preview at the 170-metre tall (557-feet tall) building.

The Sampa Sky was inspired by Chicago’s Skydeck, on the 103rd floor of the Willis Tower.
