Hi Everyone,

I am new to this forum but have spent the last few days reading through it from the start.

I am considering making an investment into the Torch and would be gratefull of any advice offered. There are obviously some very inteligent experienced investors in here !!

As i have never been in a building as tall as the Torch could anyone let me have some info on how the lift logistics work in a building of this hight, i.e;

How long does it take to go from ground to penthouse?

Is it straight up an down in one lift or is there a change half way up?

What speed are these lifts capable of?

Thanks,

Haha ... the formwork perimeter is red colour.

So far we have seen them only in white (BRM, GROCON) or yellow (DOKA), and this will make for an very interesting and colorfull sight when the tower will be rising up in the air especially considering also the not so distant 23Marina using the same scheme.
