Dubai Frame set to open in January next year

The Dubai Frame, the emirate’s latest tourist attraction will open to the public next month, Arabian Business reported.

The date was announced during a visit by Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President, Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai.

He visited the new cultural landmark at Zabeel Park, and toured the ground floor museum of the building showcasing the UAE’s history and heritage before ascending one of the two towers, and crossing the 100m2 bridge.

The Dubai Frame is a 150-metre-high, 93-metre-wide structure built to resemble a huge picture frame, through which landmarks representing modern Dubai such as Emirates Towers and Burj Khalifa can be seen on one side, while from the other side offers views of tge older parts of the city such as Deira, Umm Harare and Karama.

During the tour, Sheikh Mohammed expressed his admiration for the project, and praised Dubai Municipality’s efforts to achieve this cultural and global attraction.

He described the Dubai Frame as an “elegant architectural feat”. It was designed by award-winning architect Fernando Donis, who also designed Dubai’s Porsche Design Towers, and the Dubai Renaissance Tower.

Recently, it was announced that Donis and the Dubai Municipality had settled their dispute about the design of the structure, although no additional details have been revealed.
