Essen, Germany-based ThyssenKrupp Elevator broke ground in October 2014 on a unique 246-m (807-ft.) tall tower in Rottweil that will house 12 shafts within a 21-m (69-ft.) diameter concrete shell, allowing engineers to test elevator speeds up to 18 m/second (59 feet). The shell was completed in July, topping out at 232 meters (761 feet)—the level of a future platform offering a panoramic view of Rottweil, the Black Forest and Alps peaks.
