KONE Corporation, press release, May 8, 2018
KONE Corporation, a global leader in the elevator and escalator industry, will install 57 elevators at Lodha The Park, a premium high-rise residential tower development in Worli, downtown Mumbai. The four residential towers of the development covered by the deal will rise to heights of some 270 meters to offer amazing views of India’s most populous city and the nearby sea.
Lodha The Park is the largest high-rise residential development in India, and the site comprises an extensive range of comforts. These include an outdoor cinema, game courts, children’s play area, rock climbing wall, cricket ground, fruit orchard, vegetable garden, and a number of swimming pools.
KONE will equip the Lodha The Park residential towers with 48 KONE MiniSpace™ high-rise elevators and nine machine-room-less KONE MonoSpace® elevators. The KONE MiniSpace™ elevators will travel at speeds of five to six meters per second. Some 3,400 people are expected to use the equipment on a daily basis.
The order also includes the KONE destination control system, which optimizes elevator performance to minimize waiting times and maximize convenience for building users. Residents will also benefit from the KONE Remote Call™ smartphone application for ordering an elevator. KONE Access, in turn, will integrate the buildings’ doors seamlessly with the elevator system for secure and efficient access management.
“This is a unique landmark development, and we are proud that our people flow solutions will enable residents and visitors to move smoothly, efficiently and safely in and around these towers,” said Axel Berkling, executive vice president for KONE Asia Pacific.
The buildings are expected to be completed by September 2019. The main developer is Lodha Developers Pvt. Ltd. The buildings were designed by WOHA Architects Singapore.
The order was booked in the fourth quarter of 2017.
