It will be the West’s fastest elevator, Jackson said, with a speed of 1,000 feet a minute. That would take about 20 seconds from ground level to the top of the 31-story building, 297% feet above Paradise Road and ! Convention Center Drive. Construction equipment was being readied at the site yes-j terday. Construction halted on the Space Needle copy in December, 1962, amid a tangle of law suits. Frank Carroll, an official of the landlord company, said the first visitors should be able to use the outside elevator early ! next year.
