173m at 2.6m per floor is about 67 floors. The 50+ years-old Tumut One underground power station in the Snowy Mountains of SE Australia has a lift shaft that drops approx 102 floors, from the surface in one fall (I have worked in it). Verify by contacting Snowy Hydro.

I guess Mitsubishi Electric's competition is officially shafted!

"This incredible looking building, built by the mitsubishi electric corporation, is the world’s tallest elevator shaft and was constructed specifically to enable engineers to research the next generation of high-speed elevators. solae is 173 metres tall and cost $45 million (usd) to complete but is an essential piece of kit when you consider the ever-increasing speeds and heights of elevator shafts: the world’s fastest elevator is currently at taipei 101 and travels at 37.66mph but this will soon be beaten by the elevators at the 800 metre high burj dubai which will reach ear-popping speeds of 42.36mph."
