In the Foksal 13 building the first panoramic elevator in Warsaw was installed, that will serve future residents again after its renovation. During the modernization, another elevator was installed, at which a solution called the "ghost" was used. Drawings of windows that were originally located on subsequent floors of the facade’s fragment where the elevator is now located were placed along the entire height of the shaft.
