Hi Blizzy.

It's only complicated if you want to go above the tennant levels.
I think 2 elevators max for any tennant levels.

Anyway here is the elevator schedule. How I wish it was clearer. It can be deciphered - sorta.



Here is a shot from Imre showing the important lifts.



Here are some simple drawings.

Fire-Service


Hotel


Residential


Office


Service


Thats everything I have on the elevators.

Hope this helps.

@Fury - unless I'm not understanding that explanation of the elevators, surely it's missing the observation deck one?

Hi Gerald.

Look at the office drawing.

The lower cab of the double decker takes office workers from the concourse level to level 123 - the office skylobby, before they take a second elevator either up or down.

The upper cab takes OD visitors from the ground level to level 124.

Both the concourse and level 123 are 6.0 meters high.


Ray.

From this photo posted by Fury (original by Imre) despite the blurry photo
the information about elevators is very helpful. And to go to At the top which elevator is to choose: HS1, HS2 or BS1?

Fury, that's great info, thanks.

So basically there is a situation where you go UP to the skylobby and then take an elevator DOWN to your destination? That's something new for me. Has anyone heard about any other towers incorporating such a solution?

I believe the one you need to take is not listed here. Look at the diagrams that fury provided, the one relating to office elevators: one double decker goes from ground level to level 123/124. I can't see this route in imre's photo. I believe the elevators you mentioned are service (hence the letter S).

Amazingly clear day today.

Here's a (much) reduced pic from about an hour ago.

Yeah that way it looks more like a spire than a skyscraper. The Burj Dubai is not a skyscraper for a T/S lens.
