UAE. KONE, a global leader in the elevator and escalator industry, will equip Reem Mall, a world-class retail, leisure, dining and entertainment destination currently being built on Reem Island on the northeast coast of Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates.

Reem Island is a planned residential and commercial community commonly referred to as “the new Abu Dhabi”. The island, adjacent to Abu Dhabi’s dense Central Business District and linked to the mainland by 6 bridges, is expected to be home to 200,000 people once the development is complete.

With 186,000 m2 of gross leasable area, Reem Mall is set to feature 100 restaurants, department stores, one of the largest hypermarket space in the region, as well as unique entertainment and edutainment features - including Snow Park Abu Dhabi. The 10,000 m2 attraction is poised to become an icon for Reem Mall and the Abu Dhabi region.

KONE will equip Reem mall with 50 KONE Mono Space® elevators, 60 TravelMaster™ 110 escalators, and 10 TravelMaster™ 115 inclined autowalks. The KONE E-Link™ equipment monitoring system will enable the performance of all of the elevators, escalators and autowalks across the property to be monitored in real time from a single location.

Our mission is to improve the flow of urban life, and it is very exciting to contribute to the creation of this new urban hub in the heart of the ‘new Abu Dhabi’,” said Pierre Liautaud, executive vice president for KONE South Europe, Middle East and Africa.

The project is being developed by Al Farwaniya Property Developments, a partnership between Agility, Agility affiliate United Projects for Aviation Services Company (UPAC), and National Real Estate Company (NREC).

The main contractor is Itinera Ghantoot, a UAE-Italian joint venture. Mace is the project management consultant, while Dewan Architects & Engineers are the technical architects and CallisonRTKL are the design architects for Reem Mall.

KONE booked the order in the third quarter of 2018.
