KONE Corporation, a global leader in the elevator and escalator industry, has won an order to equip Nanjing Golden Eagle World, an interconnected, three-tower high-rise structure, with 108 elevators and escalators. Located in the capital of Jiangsu Province, the Nanjing Golden Eagle World towers will include high-end offices and a five-star hotel. A lower building at the base of the three towers will house Asia's largest shopping center and a 5,000-space parking garage.

KONE is also delivering a KONE Destination Control System to increase capacity and shorten elevator journey times by optimizing traffic flows.
