Urban Outfitters opened a new space in Williamsburg Brooklyn this year called Space Ninety 8. This new mega store includes a roof top restaurant. To create the new concept store they gutted an old industrial building and used salvaged materials and a lot of blackened steel for a very unique look. 
The 5 story structure is served by a commercial elevator but on the third floor there is one area with a half flight of stairs down and a half flight of stairs up to a mezzanine from the third floor elevator lobby requiring a vertical platform (wheelchair) lift to provide accessibility to those two split levels. 
The area chosen for the lift required a basket of steel be created to suspend the lift runway over a space open to the second floor retail space below. That steel super structure was used to support the lift. The lift has it’s own enclosure in order to meet elevator safety codes so the lift and it’s enclosure frames had to be lowered into the steel basket and assembled in place.
