KONE, a global leader in the elevator and escalator industry, today announced it won an order to provide 18 elevators to Park District, a 916,000-square foot mixed-use project located at 2101 Pearl Street in downtown Dallas, Texas.
“To help ensure a safe and comfortable ride, KONE is driving global innovation with our Smart Building solutions, such as KONE Destination. Unlike conventional elevator control systems, which only register the desired travel direction, KONE Destination incorporates the desired floors and the number of waiting passengers to significantly improve elevator convenience and efficiency. We are proud to be selected as the elevator solutions provider to what is sure to be a unique landmark in Dallas,” said Larry Wash, executive vice president of KONE Americas.
Park District consists of a 19-story shell office building with four additional garage levels below grade, as well as a 32-story luxury residential tower, ground-floor retail and 5-story parking garage above grade overlooking the award-winning Klyde Warren Park. Additionally, the project includes finished amenity space for the apartments, landscaping and shell retail spaces.
The project is developed by Trammell Crow Company (TTC) and joint venture partner Metlife, Inc., and is designed by Dallas-based HKS Architects. Future tenants of Park District include Princewaterhouse Coopers (PwC) and High Street Residential, TCC’s residential subsidiary.
