Finland?s KONE Corporation said it would supply elevators, escalators and travelators for the Dubai Hills Mall in the UAE

The company will deliver 88 escalators, two inclined autowalks and 66 elevators for the mall, which will be part of the planned Mohammed Bin Rashid City.

KONE said it had booked the order in the fourth quarter of 2017.

The mall will house more than 650 retail outlets, a large supermarket, 18-screen cinema, concert spaces and spas among others.

?Dubai Hills Mall will become a key venue for lifestyle experiences at the Dubai Hills Estate. Visitors will expect the highest level of ease and efficiency when moving within the premises, and we are extremely proud that our solutions were selected to support the realization of this vision,? said Pierre Liautaud, KONE executive vice-president for South Europe, Middle East and Africa.

Emaar Development PJSC and Dubai-based real estate company Meraas Holding LLC are developing the mall in a joint venture.

Emaar announced the start of the project in August last year. The mall, located at the crossing of Umm Suqeim Street and Al Khail Road, will also link to the Dubai Metro and other public transport.
