yes it will be

according to a elevator company it will be 238m high

but i don't know if they also count the spire
or only the highest floor
because the spire will be around 20m high
238m+20m = 258m
and 258m is the last number we get

The client & promoter : Hema Endustri AS – Istanbul
Project Manager : Hattat Insaat AS – Istanbul
Architects : Dome Architects – Istanbul
Vertical Transportation Consultants : Arup VT – London

The Diamond of Istanbul is a very ultra modern design multi use tower designed by the inventive Dome architects of Istanbul, they and their clients didn’t want an “International Mediocre Building” which could be in any major city in the world but a modern tower giving a design statement to the skyline of this vibrant city of Istanbul and this is what they have achieved.
The local professional team approached Arup VT because of their International reputation and experience but also their approach to looking over the horizon in terms of design development and expertise where 2nd best is not acceptable and a flexible approach is demanded and the architectural design not only of the lifts but also the building is paramount to its overall success.
The D OF I comprises of a striking 238 meter tower with a panoramic restaurant at the very top of the and below it is 48 levels of letable floors, the D of I also comprises of 5 levels of retail areas and 5 levels of underground car parking. Therefore the total height of the building from the lowest car parking floor to the top is 260 meters which makes it a very tall building as well as a dynamic looking building.

The brief for the VT Systems were that they had to comply with the very latest requirements of EN81, Turkish lift standards and also International Passenger performance criteria in terms of waiting and journey times and ride comfort.

The D o I by its unique design is totally flexible to possible future use as a commercial building, or a luxury hotel, or luxury apartments or possible a mixture of all three, plus the retail and car parking zones.

After professional team meetings discussing the various possible scenarios, the VT system concept adopted, allowed for the maximisation of building core space and the trademark Arup VT design of the lift systems to incorporate “ flexible functionality”, which has produced complex VT systems which are just right for this very exiting building therefore the building is not over or under elevated based upon today’s international standards and criteria.

Although the D of I Tower lifts are relatively fast at 6.0m/sec, all lift within the complex building have vital role to play and are in the correct location, have the ideal loading and speed characteristics. There are also firefighting lifts in locations agreed with the project fire engineers to make the job of the fire-fighters safer and assist with evacuation.

The project team were very conscious of the needs of those users with a disability and all passenger carrying lifts have all the features to enable the user to have barrier free access to every occupied area within the building.

Because of the 5 retail levels between the main lobby and 1st commercial floor the D OF I has sets of escalators providing service to and from these levels together with back up conventional lifts for users who don’t like the experience of travelling on an escalator or with buggies or possibly have a disability.

At he back of the retail units there are large cargo lifts serving from the loading bay to all the retail levels to enable the units to be serviced out of sight of the shoppers as it was recognised that if the shopping units couldn’t get their goods on display they couldn’t sell them.

Working with such a forward looking and adventurous project team we also had to consider and design into the protect, because of its very flexible design concept items such as environmental awareness, passenger evacuation in the event of an Imminent Catastrophic Event commonly referred to as ICE scenario, also state of the art passenger access and security systems to the private levels within the D of I, Acoustic and sound isolation systems to prevent noise and vibration from the lift shafts penetrating area which may be rooms designated as sleeping locations, and final most important for Istanbul seismic protection for the lifts and escalators.

The D of I will be for the foreseeable future a bench mark for inventive architectural design, functional flexibility not on in Istanbul but in our opinion worldwide and this is solely due to an architect, client and promoter who won’t accept 2nd best and push the design team to its creative limits and also most importantly are not afraid to bring into the project International expertise not only for the VT systems but other areas within this complex and exiting building that will be gracing the Istanbul Skyline in the very near future.
