The Elevator Designs of Jeddah Tower

When it is completed in 2018, the mixed-use Kingdom Tower will become the new world’s tallest tower. It will contain multiple, stacked mixed-use population zones, including subterranean parking, building entry/amenity/retail floors, office floors, hotel levels, serviced apartment floors, six residential zones and two rooftop observatory/sky-terrace levels served by double-deck elevators. Each of these zones will be served by its own sets of local and express high-speed sky-lobby (SL) shuttle lifts.
