One of the coolest places to have a Garaventa Lift installed is the Oue Skyspace Skyslide. In fact, The Oue Skyspace slide has been named one of the 16 coolest things to do in Los Angeles by Forbes Magazine. It is a glass-enclosed slide which goes from the 70th floor to the 69th floor on the outside of the U.S. Bank Building in downtown Los Angeles, the tallest building west of the Mississippi. The slide is fully accessible because of a beautiful custom colored Genesis Enclosure unit installed right beside the slide entrance.

Congratulations to Randy Weiler, Chuck Vander Hill and the rest of the team at McKinley Elevator. This installation has been named the Garaventa Lift Project of the Month for August, 2016.
