The Construction company "thyssen-krupp elevator" is planning a Science and Test-Tower for high-speed elevators with an observation deck on top.

costs: approx. 40 Million Euro

mayor Broß says he wants the project and wants it to start in 2013,so it could be completed in 2015 or 2016.

Rottweil is located in the south-west of germany (province Baden-Württemberg)

Nice design and all but I don't think this is a skyscraper.
Btw, the Rottweiler dog is named after this town.

also tv towers and mosque's are allowed in this subforum, so i think it is also the right place for an elevator test building.

"Im oberen Bereich des Turms mit einem Durchmesser von rund 15 Metern wäre eine Aussichtsplattform möglich"
sounds to me like it is not clear if an observation deck is planned.

That isn't really surprising. This does not seem to be a very urban location.

Although my German is rusty, it appears that this tower has been approved by the local authorities. The definitive design of the tower will presented this Spring, but some impressions are already shown on the project's site.

No longer looks like a giant joint at least. Is the height still the same? Looks kinda short.
