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,

you should check out the " pros section"
since this thread is construction;gets updated a lot and your post will soon be hidden among hundreds of pictures and posts.

It will be nice to see how The Torch and 23 Marina will progress. Both are at the same stage, are being build by the same contractor using the same building technique and the roof heights are not that much different ... and just a few hundreds meters distant.
