ThyssenKrupp Tower (Under Construction)

The test tower of elevator manufacturer ThyssenKrupp cost a reported £35M to build.

Upon completion in 2017, the 248m tower will have 12 separate elevator shafts for testing new elevator technology. It is reported that some elevators will travel at speeds of more than 40mph. ThyssenKrupp will also be testing elevators that move horizontally and do not use cables or ropes.

At 232m, there will be a viewing tower, making it the highest viewing tower in Germany, surpassing the Berlin TV Tower. The Berlin TV Tower will still be the tallest structure overall, at 368m.
