L.A.’s Future Tallest with Otis Vertical Transportation

INTRODUCING Elevator Elevator

U.S. News

New renderings in Los Angeles Magazine of the 73-story, 1,100-ft.-tall Wilshire Grand Center, Los Angeles’ and the West Coast’s future tallest building (ELEVATOR WORLD, April 2013 and January 2014), provide a glimpse of the Otis elevator system that will be installed. Scheduled to open in 2017, Wilshire Grand will have hotel rooms on the upper floors and offices on the lower floors. The structure features a concrete core to house the elevator shafts and provide earthquake resistance. According to Turner Construction Vice President Scott Borland, high-speed, double-deck elevators will serve offices and hotel rooms through two separate elevator banks. Otis reports it is providing 52 units -- 38 elevators and 14 escalators. Otis’s energy-saving CompassPlusTM destinationdispatch system will facilitate travel on 27 of the elevators. Lerch Bates is providing façade access.

San Francisco Getting Highest Homes West of Chicago

181 Fremont, a 70-story tower coming out of the ground in San Francisco’s Transbay Redevelopment District, will house the highest residences west of Chicago, reported Besides nearly 70 condominiums on the upper floors, 181 Fremont will also boast 432,000 sq. ft. of office space. It was designed by Heller Manus Architects and structurally engineered by ARUP to withstand wind and seismic events. The design is energy efficient and will provide impressive views of the city’s architecture and landmarks, including the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge, from the upper floors. It is scheduled for completion by the end of 2016.
