At times when you are getting late to your office, you might have impatiently waited long for an office building elevator to come. But this is something that have been solved in Umeda Hankyu Building’s new office area in Osaka, Japan, with the installations of the five Mitsubishi Electric’s elevators that are possibly the largest measuring 3.4m wide, 2.8m long and 2.6m high. Each elevator has a whopping capacity for 80 people at a time with more than 11,500 pounds weight carrying power. Well, if you’ve sound mathematics, you can calculate that these five elevators together can lift up to 400 people at once. And to get rid of the thought of being crammed into an elevator with 79 people, these elevators feature glass windows that allow you enjoy the view of vicinity as you move upward.
