In addition, the building will be equipped with 12 KONE KT 100 turnstiles and the KONE Destination Control System to enable smooth people flow and premium user experiences for visitors and tenants.

"Shenzhen is known for its skyscrapers and the Citymark Center will become another impressive landmark in the city. We are proud to contribute to this project and our solutions will bring a more intuitive experience for visitors and employees, improving access, guidance, security and peace of mind," said William B. Johnson, Executive Vice President, KONE Greater China.
