ThyssenKrupp Elevator has received an order to supply two Twin systems with a total of four cabs as well as 17 conventional elevators for the Latifa Tower in Dubai.

On completion of the 210-metre-high residential and office building planned for 2010, these will be the first Twin elevator installations in use in Dubai. While the upper Twin cabs in the Latifa Tower will travel in the shafts at up to six metres per second, the lower cabs will reach a speed of up to four meters per second.

In addition to the two Twin systems, two of the 17 conventional elevators are also suitable for use as Twins. If needed, they can be extended into a complete Twin system.

Seriously, about 4 floors in 3 months ain't that fast, compared to the giant HHHR Tower next door, but at least there's some progress. Reminds me a bit of Suntrust Plaza in Atlanta btw.

Same place, same photo-artist (Imre),

and core about 7 floors taller:

Latifa Tower won't be able to compete with new supertall HHHR Tower,
but it seems that construcion is moving on steadily.

I hate everything on this tower. The design, it's bulkyness and so on. It will totally destroy the appereance of its neighboor HHHR!
