The «UPTOWN MELS» development can be found at the old Stoffel site above Mels. The former textile factories were converted into an urban residential and commercial area with 220 apartments. There was only a narrow road without pedestrian protection led up to the industrial sector. Due to the extreme slope, rebuilding the road was too expensive, so property owners and the local council decided on a link with our Comfort inclined elevator. Since 2019 it has linked the village of Mels with the new settlement. This convenient system travels 48.5m and covers a height of 31 metres. The 37 kW drive handles the gradient of 39.9° at a speed of 1.5 m/s. The stations at the top and bottom are equipped with automatic doors. The cabin holds 12 people whilst the payload is 900kg.
