KONE Corporation will supply 46 elevators and five escalators for ICD Brookfield Place in Dubai.
The escalator and elevator specialist will equip the $1bn development in DIFC with 17 monospace elevators, 27 minispace elevators, two scenic elevators and five escalators.
“This is a special project in one of the most prestigious areas of Dubai. We are delighted to be adding our efficient solutions to such an incredible building,” said Nicolas El Khal, managing director of KONE UAE, Oman, and Bahrain.
The 54-storey, 282 metre-high ICD Brookfield Place covers more than 950,000 sq ft of Grade A office space and a 150,000 sq ft, five-storey retail centre. There will also be an 21,000 sq ft public area with restaurants, and parking facilities for 2,700 cars.
A joint venture of Investment Corporation of Dubai and Brookfield is developing the project, which is being built by Multiplex SsangYong JV.
The project, one of the first major developments to get underway at DIFC since the financial crisis in 2008, is expected to be completed in March 2019.
