Based on our research online, the elevator is located at Jio World Centre (JWC), Mumbai. The centre is a venue for holding conferences, exhibitions, or large weddings, and the related elevator is used to accommodate a large number of visitors.

This largest passenger elevator covers an area of 25.78 square meters, accommodating up to 235 people travelling between 5 floors at a speed of 1 metre per second.

The area of the elevator is similar to that of a studio apartment, so much so that some people initially thought it was a room.

Another unique feature of the lift is that it includes a glass wall and a 4-panel centre-opening glass door with mirrors on two sides.

The lift was installed by KONE, the elevator and escalator manufacturing major, and started operating in May 2022.

KONE Elevators India’s Managing Director, Amit Gossain revealed in an interview during the elevator’s launch that the 16-tonne elevator is a pure engineering marvel as it is powered by KONE EcoDisc MX 100, the most powerful hoisting machine.
