The reasons behind my opinions

Interesting. Sounds like they're going to try to keep the building original or something. Old motors and generators are always better, though. There was a bit more thought put into their looks, as well as their function.

I used to work at Select Sound Service in downtown Milwaukee, and they had this huge motor-generator in the dark basement that was used to convert AC to DC for the elevator. They replaced it with a solid state rectifier in the 1950s, upstairs, but the motor could still be run should the rectifier ever fail, and it was awesome to see running!
