Vertical-transportation (VT) consultancy VDA recently provided ELEVATOR WORLD with a detailed description of the elevator system serving the 51-story 11 Hoyt Street, architect Jeanne Gang’s first NYC skyscraper and one of the tallest buildings in Brooklyn (EW, June 2018). The 481-unit condominium building is served by elevators manufactured by Fujitec. The system consists of:

  • Three overhead-traction, gearless, 2500-lb-capacity, 1,000-ft/min elevators serving the lower floors
  • Three overhead traction, gearless, 2500-lb-capacity, 1,200 ft/min elevators serving the higher floors
  • A dedicated overhead traction, gearless, 3500-lb-capacity, 700-ft/min dedicated service elevator VDA Senior Associate Brian Schaulewicz said the project followed successful completion of several projects in NYC, including the Hearst Tower (EW, February 2017), for 11 Hoyt Street developer Tishman Speyer. He said:

“From the initial stages of traffic studies to determine the quantity and speeds of the elevators; to providing drawings and specifications enabling any elevator contractor to bid on the project; and, finally, performing site visits to ensure that the final installation met all specifications and code requirements, VDA is proud to have seen the project through to completion.”
