Workers hoist giant AC unit up Capital One Tower

A large air conditioning unit was hoisted up along the outside of the Capital One tower. Workers spent Thursday afternoon raising the unit to an upper level tenant.

Building management said one of the tenants needed additional air conditioning during overnight, weekend and holiday hours. Building management wouldn't say which tenant is installing the unit.

The building does offer air conditioning during those times but at a rate that makes this external option ideal. 9 out of 10 times tenants go with the in-house air conditioning.

All construction was paid for by the tenant receiving the unit.
