KONE Corporation, press release, October 20,
KONE Corporation, a global leader in the elevator and escalator industry, has won an order to deliver 95 elevators and escalators to Nanfeihong Plaza, a new mixed-use development in Xi'an, the capital of Shaanxi province in Northwest China.
Located in the city's Yanta district, the 470,000-square-meter Nanfeihong Plaza will include a shopping mall, a boutique hotel and two grade-A office towers that will rise up to 196.2 meters and 134.6 meters. The design of the buildings has been inspired by the nearby Hua Shan mountain, one of the five great mountains of China, making Nanfeihong Plaza a unique architectural landmark in the historically important city.
For smooth and safe people flow, KONE will deliver 25 KONE MiniSpace™ elevators, 25 KONE MonoSpace® elevators, 43 KONE TravelMaster™110 escalators and 2 KONE TravelMaster™115 escalators to the development. In addition, the buildings will be equipped with KONE Destination Control System that will reduce waiting and traveling times, and KONE E-link™ monitoring system that will enable monitoring the performance of all the equipment in real time from a single location.
"We are honored that our previous projects in Xi'an have led to a possibility to contribute also to the development of this fantastic new mixed-use complex. Our solutions and expertise will help create a premium user experience for visitors of Nanfeihong Plaza, at a city of such historic significance," said William B. Johnson, Executive Vice President, KONE Greater China.
The project is estimated to be completed in 2022, and it is developed by Xi'an Yancheng Real Estate Co., Ltd.
KONE booked the order in the second quarter of 2020.
