Do most locals like it?
well, there was a huge discussion about the tower and its affect in the landscape and the historical skyline, but the majority voted for it cause of its positive meaning for the region and an increase of jobs, etc.

Woa, this is amazing!
Not so much the tower, but that elevator system is a huge deal!
They claim it can reduce the elevator footprint with 50%, which would make building skyscrapers vastly more profitable. Just the fact that they're building a 40 000 000€ structure to try it out should speak for how big a thing this system will be for the business.

Here's an article from CTBUH:


On July 29, after less than ten months of construction, ThyssenKrupp and Züblin held the topping-out ceremony for their unique elevator test tower in Rottweil, Germany. The concrete tube of the tower has reached its full height of 232 meters, the level of the proposed viewing platform. Over the next two weeks, the final structures will be added on top before interior work starts on the tower, the tallest in Baden-Württemberg. The structure is scheduled to be completed and go into operation at the end of 2016.

In just 245 days, construction teams have dug the 32-meter-deep excavation pit, cast the foundation slab, and built the tower to its current height of 232 meters using an innovative slipforming technique. On peak days, the tower grew by up to four meters – a remarkable achievement. "The commitment and smooth cooperation of all involved has been unique – not something that can be taken for granted with major projects like that," says Alexander Keller, CEO for Central, Eastern, and Northern Europe at ThyssenKrupp Elevator and responsible for the construction of the tower.

Over the next two weeks, the tower will reach a height of 244 meters with the construction of the final story and the top of the elevator shafts.
The last piece of construction, bringing the tower to its final height of 246 meters, will then follow with completion of the façade. Before that happens, interior work will start in mid-August. Next, building services and elevator equipment will be installed starting in autumn. Work on the outer skin will then begin in March 2016.

"For ThyssenKrupp Elevator the test tower in Rottweil will play a key role in the implementation of the global innovation strategy that is of major importance for the success of the company," says Andreas Schierenbeck, CEO of ThyssenKrupp Elevator. Together with the elevator plant in Neuhausen auf den Fildern, and as part of the research and development site in Pliezhausen, the test tower will form an innovation center for elevator technologies in Germany.

Among the technologies of the future that will be tested in Rottweil is the new MULTI system, which was unveiled at the end of 2014 and is currently in the prototype phase. The system will be powered by maglev technology, which provides several advantages: The rope-less design means multiple cabs can be operated in one elevator shaft. This increases shaft transportation capacity by up to 50 percent while reducing the elevator footprint in a building by half. In addition, the elevators will move both sideways and vertically without height limitation, opening up completely new applications. Three of the twelve shafts in the new test tower are earmarked for the new MULTI system.

Why was the height in the thread title changed? No one in here said anything about a height reduction. Is there anything going on I don't know about?

Can't remember anything. The title has to be changed back.

(Google Translate):
This is a piece of test tower membrane

In addition to the extraordinary design, the coated glass fiber cloth protects the test tower against sunlight and weather.

The durable high-tech material is translucent and gives the tower its semi-transparent appearance.

Among other things is the glass fiber fabric in the seven-star hotel Burj al Arab in Dubai

Couldn't see it when I passed last week. I think you can see it from the "Neckarsburg Ost" stop, can anyone confirm that?

The tower can't be unseen from both ways of the A81 east of the autobahn.
Or you invest the 5min loop way at the exit Rottweil (direction B27 Balingen) to stand by the tower!
