The Trump Tower in Chicago is complete yet the thread is still in this section. We should leave them for a littler longer until it is fully done around the building ect. The ground around Burj Dubai is still incloplete (trees, parks ect...)

BK Elevator branding and questions

T101 has the ob-deck lifts built by Toshiba, as noted on the T101 website.

I don't know if all the elevators are Toshiba - or just these two.

There's a video "World's fastest elevator on Youtube. It shows the display in these lifts showing position, height and speed of travel.

I did not see this display in the BK video - but every elevator has at least a display of where it is, and which way it is going. The lower deck of the BK lifts would not have the flashing lights etc, but would need the basic display.

Has anyone seen this yet ?

Has anyone else seen any other details about the BK lifts yet ?

Fury would be interested - as well as myself.

Thank you
