The construction of the two pillars of the Dubai Frame project are now on progress to work as the support for the huge Dh160 million project that takes the shape of a giant window.
According to the Dubai Municipality, 75 per cent of the project has been fulfilled project and is set to open before this year ends. It is found near to the Zabeel Park, sitting between Bur Dubai and Sheikh Zayed Road.
The site was chosen after a series of surveys of what site would provide the greatest views of new Dubai and old Dubai through the frame.
With reference to its name, the project will showcase landscapes of the city in a frame; allowing a view of the areas of Old Dubai from one side such as Al Karama, Umm Hurair, Bur Dubai and Deira and the New Dubai skyline from another.
The whopping rectangle measuring 150 meters by 93 meters will act as a giant viewfinder.
At the top of the frame, the sky bridge will be built. Along this bridge, a viewing gallery will be installed to give the public panoramic views. The view of the visitors will not be limited as the elevators on the side of the frame will be built in glass.
Because of its uniqueness in terms of design and objectives, the municipality is optimistic that it will attract 2,000,000 visitors a year, and will be considered as one of the iconic landmarks in line with a the Burj Khalifa and the Burj Al Arab.
The said tourist spots, along with other skyscrapers, main coastal and marine projects, will be featured in the view when the Dubai Frame is complete.
An area at the ground floor will be dedicated for multimedia presentations highlighting the fast revolution of Dubai from a tiny fishing and commercial town by the sea to progressive metropolis. Various ruins and remnants are to be exhibited in a museum which represents the past and the present Dubai.
