Macao, 15 Nov 2016 – The Parisian Macao which opened on 13th September, has become the latest addition to Schindler’s growing portfolio of integrated resorts on Macao’s spectacular Cotai Strip to receive its mobility solutions. The newest member of Sands Resorts Cotai Strip Macao pays tribute to Europe’s beautiful “City of Light” – Paris – featuring a half-size replica of the Eiffel Tower powered by two of Schindler’s most advanced high-rise elevators.
Schindler has installed a total of 87 elevators and 48 escalators throughout the luxurious integrated resort, which encompasses 3,000 guest rooms and suites, a variety of restaurants, over 170 upscale stores and boutiques, French-inspired streetscapes and entertainment, the 1,200-seat Parisian Theatre, a pool deck with a themed water park, a health club and a kids’ club.
The star of The Parisian Macao is undoubtedly its stunning replica of the world-famous Eiffel Tower, with the half-sized steel structure housing two specially designed Schindler 7000 elevators. The high-speed units are engineered to support both high traffic and high winds, transporting visitors 100 meters to the 37th floor observation deck in approximately 40 seconds. Schindler’s contribution to the vast complex also includes 40 additional Schindler 7000 elevator units, 39 compact and efficient Schindler 5500 elevators, and 48 Schindler 9300AE escalators – the world’s most popular moving stairway.
The opening of The Parisian Macao further expands Schindler’s massive portfolio on Cotai, with the company already providing mobility innovations to more than 13,000 hotel rooms, retail, dining, entertainment and conference facilities at an impressive network of luxury hotels and resorts. These include The Venetian Macao; Four Seasons Hotel Macao, Cotai Strip; The St. Regis Macao, Cotai Central; Conrad Macao, Cotai Central; Sheraton Grand Macao Hotel, Cotai Central; and Holiday Inn Macao Cotai Central.
“The Parisian Macao with its glittering Eiffel Tower is sure to become the Cotai Strip’s new landmark feature, and will attract people from all over the world,” said Matthias Steiner, General Manager of Jardine Schindler Lifts (Macao) Limited. “The anticipated daily visitor numbers presented a unique and exciting challenge, and we are pleased to have developed purpose-built elevator and escalator solutions that will allow every guest to experience the stunning heights and features of The Parisian Macao swiftly, comfortably and safely,” he said.
