Will this tower have an outside elevator? It would be great to look outside starting at 0m and going up to 474m.

external elevator will just ruin the tower, though may be in the 2 narrow sides of the tower could have them because the elvators don't stand out as much, but important thing is that this has dizzying height of oservation deck and is just brilliant.

That's more of an illusion as the photo suffers from heavy distortion from the lens.
