Dubai’s newest landmark shines in gold
The Frame, estimated to cost Dh160 million, is located near Star Gate in Zabeel Park, and consists of two towers that are 150 metres high and 93 metres wide, connected by a 100 square metre bridge. The bridge provides room for visitors to take snapshots of the city’s panoramic view.
The tower’s height can be compared to that of a 50-storey building.
Construction work on the towers started at the end of 2013, and within the last few weeks, authorities have been working around the clock to install the last few details, such as the gold stainless steel cladding.
On photos recently circulated on Instagram, residents in Dubai shared snapshots of how the Dubai Frame looks with its latest design.
Along the 100 square metre bridge, which connects the two towers that make up the Frame, you can see that Dubai Municipality has already installed a design inspired by the Expo 2020 logo
According to a statement issued by Dubai Municipality, the Frame will have interior spaces on the ground floor (the horizontal rib bottom of the frame) for exhibitions, which will display details of old Dubai in pictures and show how the city evolved since the sixties and how it is now.
The ground floor ends at the main panoramic elevator, which goes up through the rib of the Frame to get to the top floor.
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 contrast.
