Tower's elevators to carry cars and human passengers

ASME SmartBrief | May 19, 2015

An elevator system at the $560 million Porsche Design Tower in Sunny Isles Beach, Fla., is testing the limits of construction and engineering technology. The system will transport both humans and cars and will enable residents to park their cars in a garage attached to their unit in the 60-story tower. A turntable, radio-frequency identification, motion detectors, sensors and three car elevators all work together to enable the feat. Engineering News-Record (05/18)
