KONE Corporation, a global leader in the elevator and escalator industry, has won an order to supply a suite of people flow solutions for the new 489-meter-high mixed-use Panda Tower (officially Chengdu Tianfu Supertall) in Chengdu, Western China. Towering to a height of 95 floors, the iconic structure will provide office, hotel, and retail space.

Upon its projected completion in 2027, the Panda Tower is set to become Chengdu's tallest. In terms of its structure, the high-rise development resembles a snow-capped mountain, blending in with its natural environment. With an indoor pond and other garden features throughout the complex, its architectural design takes a sustainable approach.   

"KONE has had the privilege to contribute to numerous supertall building projects, shaping iconic skylines in Greater China and beyond," says Joe Bao, KONE executive vice president of Greater China. "I'm confident in our ability to also ensure seamless access throughout Chengdu's mixed-use Panda Tower and am excited about KONE enhancing the passenger experience in a compact supertall building that challenges architectural norms, impressing with both scale and environmental prowess."

The order comprises the installation of 24 KONE MiniSpace™ and five KONE MonoSpace® elevators. Included is a two-year standard maintenance contract, as well as KONE UltraRope®, the KONE E-Link™ system, and KONE 24/7 Connected Services to ensure smooth operations throughout the building.

The main developer is Zhonghai Jialong Chengdu Real Estate Development Co., Ltd and the main contractor is China Construction Eighth Engineering Bureau Co., Ltd. The architectural work is done by China Southwest Architectural Design and Research Institute Co., Ltd.

KONE booked the order in Q4 of 2023.
