There are some spectacular building designs that will require the most green elevator modernizations under construction in many United States Cities. Here we highlight a few of our favorites that are sure to incorporate many of the new green building designs and elevator modernization.


Planning a 52-Story Building at 555 W. 38th Street In Hudson Yards, Manhattan; RockRose files permits. While the construction site is near the Jacob Javits Center, it is not adjacent to Related’s mega-development, five blocks away.

This proposed 565-foot tall building will have 467,000 square feet in interior space, with 402,200 square feet residential use, and 1,640 square feet for ground floor retail. RockRose is planning on building 598 rental apartments, averaging 780 square feet.


Planned amenities include a lounge, laundry, storage, and even bicycle storage on the ground, fourth, and fifth floors. Other plans are a fitness center on the 32nd floor, squash court, golf simulator, and a rooftop lounge and terrace on the 33rd floor.

The street level of the tower will have more than 12,000 sq. ft. of commercial space for the significant amount of pedestrian traffic that is in the area. This building will feature live plants as part of its grand entry that is highlighted by a double height urban canopy. This is another example of sustainable building that will require green and efficient elevator modernization.


Here is another building in Florida that will become one of the largest residential towers in Miami. OKO Group has been working on excavation and subterranean construction for the last year on a project called Missoni Baia. This tower will rise to 649 feet and 57 stories which will make it one of Miami’s largest towers. This Edgewater-area development will deliver 249 luxury units to the downtown Miami waterfront.


Another green building stunner is being constructed in Southern California. Modernization of green elevators will surely be included in this beautiful contemporary building design. This new trend of adding greenery to the exterior of buildings to cut down on greenhouse gases in metropolitan areas is a trend that will be sure to continue. This particular building is designed by ODA, the vegetation-rich 819 Foot tower will be a standout in downtown Los Angeles, its garden terraces along with a rooftop oasis and ground-level entryway canopy, bring a bit of greenery and beauty to the Southern California skyline.
