Ping An International Finance Centre (also known as Ping An IFC) is a 115-story megatall skyscraper which is under construction in Shenzhen, Guangdong province, China. The building was commissioned by Ping An Insurance, and designed by the American architectural firm Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates. It is expected to be completed in 2016, and will at that time be the 2nd tallest building in the world and it will be the tallest building in China. The building complex also includes a planned retail bridge connecting to future developments in the south. In January 2015, Malaysian daredevil photographer Keow Wee Loong  climbed the Ping an finance center  and released video footage and a photo taken from a crane at the tower's top.
The Ping An Finance Centre will be equipped with 33 "Schindler 7000" Schindler Double Deck Lifts with its Destination Control and Transit Management System "PORT Technology" driving with a speed up to 10 m/s.
The installation of the office elevator section started in December 2013, with a completion date of April 2015.
