DraftFBC, an advertising agency in New York, included an ad for “milk’s favorite cookie” in this panoramic elevator located in a shopping mall (undisclosed location). I must say, this tactic is pretty brilliant because I am craving oreos now.
I took these pictures last weekend while staying at the Caribe in Orange Beach, Alabama, which is about 1.5 hr. from Elevator World’s headquarters in Mobile. Though I have stayed in many condominiums, this one takes the cake. It is more like a tropical resort complete with several large swimming pools, a water park and a lazy river (my personal favorite). And, since the elevators were pretty neat, I figured I would snap some shots.
Danish architectural firm BIG (Bjarke Ingels Group) has unveiled a unique design for a 70,000 square foot observation tower in Phoenix, Arizona. “The Pin”, as the tower has been nicknamed, will stand at over 420 feet tall and feature a spiraling, spherical observation deck offering 360-degree views of downtown Phoenix. The tower will be built using reinforced concrete and will be accessible by three glass elevators. Like the Guggenheim Museum in New York, visitors to the tower will be encouraged to take an elevator to the very top of the structure and then make their way down the sphere and enjoy Phoenix’s spectacular views from open air platforms. The project is estimated to cost $60 million and will be Phoenix’s second tallest tower, standing slightly less tall than the 483-foot Chase Tower.
