These buildings protect spaces for the realization of community, institutional, administrative and technical activities,where the operation of the Escalators will be coordinated, converting them not only into control elements but into an urban reference and a meeting point for the residents of the sector and its surroundings.

The escalators are integrated by six double sections. They are made of steel and the steps are made of an aluminum casting. The finishes are in stainless steel. The entrance platforms have protection elements composed of a synthetic resin. This product acquire all the standards required by the Mayor’s Office of Medellín.
