Yes there are, a bit toughening of standards, that's it.
Will there be special design considerations for elevators for Skyscraper buildings ?.
With distance, everything else increases straight from cable tension to electric motor capacity.
Factors like Load capacity, Elevator Speed has to be considered for designing elevators for Tall Buildings ?.
Elevator speed is a very important factor here. Go through the requirements of cable tension(see what safety factor you want), adding to that higher the speed higher will be your power requirement and adding to it, you need to take care of the counter weight you take.
The Load carrying capacity for elevators will be less for skyscrapers on a safer side ?. |

Considering the safety factor, as much I remember it is taken around 4 times of the short traveling elevators, you need to have either the ones with rated higher capacity(require bigger duct, more power consumption and hence pricier option) or the ones with lesser load carrying capacity. BTW
, have you taken the expected number of users into account for the running?
Rest I can talk to the civil engineer of our company, maybe he can help.
