Dubai Frame to be opened for public soon
The city’s new iconic landmark, Dubai Frame, will be ready for visitors SOON.
The tower’s height can be compared to that of a 50-storey building, and although the bridge’s capacity and cover charge has not been revealed as yet, officials involved in the construction of the project have assured that the probability of it reaching full capacity remains unlikely — so as to ensure the comfort of tourists and visitors alike.
Since construction started at the end of 2013, the Dh160 million project is now close to completion.
The Dubai Frame project consists of two 150 meter towers 9 3 meters wide, connected with a 100 square meter bridge where ample room will be available for visitors to take snapshots of the city’s panoramic view. A cafe will also be available at the top.
The bridge was initially set to be completely made out of glass but, after careful consideration, it was decided to install a 25 square meter glass panel in the middle of it instead. Some people may be afraid to look down, and we wanted to make this iconic building an enjoyable experience for all.
The project is located near the Star Gate games and rides area of Zabeel Park and, according to municipal documents, the tower’s mass was recorded at a staggering 23,453 tones. The site for the landmark tourist and leisure attraction was chosen after extensive surveys of what location would offer the best views of new Dubai and old Dubai through the frame.
The Project is at the final phase of cladding the building, and an external cladding cleaning mechanism will be incorporated in the design by consultants. the panoramic lift will be fixed and the museum will also be set up.
The last phase in Dubai Frame’s construction includes panelling the photovoltaic tiles to produce solar energy, where the glass elevator will offer unobstructed views as visitors travel up and down the sides of the frame.
At the top, visitors will have a bird’s-eye view of Old Dubai as they look towards Al Karama, Umm Hurair, Bur Dubai and Deira, and as they turn around, will see the high-rise towers and development projects of New Dubai in stark contrast.
Once opened to the public, visitors will have access to the museum located on the ground floor, which is set to showcase artefacts representing new and old Dubai, and will be equipped with multimedia presentations narrating the progress of Dubai’s rapid transformation from a small fishing and trading town by the sea to a modern metropolis.
The project is expected to attract 2 million visitors a year.
Dubai Frame Status:
Dubai Frame to be finished in 2016.
It is predicted that it will become a major tourist destination in the city – one of the buildings, like the Burj Khalifa and the Burj Al Arab, that all visitors to Dubai will feel they need to see.
The Dubai Frame could be open just in time for National Day if the current schedule goes smoothly to plan
Construction work on the iconic Dubai Frame project adjacent to the Stargate theme park in Zabeel Park, Dubai, is ongoing.
