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.
