New Elevators in City Hall

The three elevators at the front of City Hall date to the original construction of this beautiful building, back in the 1920s, and the elevator mechanicals are well past their useful life. Service outages and increasing maintenance costs have led to the proposed modernization project.

The proposed scope of work includes the replacement of two out of the three elevators, with the third elevator being preserved for historic purposes. Although the other two elevators will receive new mechanicals, every effort is being made to retain or re-use historic elements such as the existing cab ceiling, wall panels, vintage signage, and appropriate fixtures.

Social attention

There have been many publications on the news about it. In orden to keep interest on it, there are fascinating videos about the old style elevators.

For instance, the video made by Sesame Street  Elephant Elevator Operator sings about the job that best fits him, but nobody can fit in the elevator with him!
