Dubai Frame set to open in January

Dubai Frame, a 150-m-high, 93-m-wide structure built to resemble a huge picture frame at Zabeel Park offering views of both the historic and modern parts of the city, will be open to the public next month.

UAE Vice President, Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, toured the award-winning cultural landmark ahead of the opening, reported state news agency Wam.

It has been designed by award-winning architect Fernando Donis, the name behind Dubai’s Porsche Design Towers, and the Dubai Renaissance Tower.

Sheikh Mohammed visited the ground floor museum of the building which showcases the UAE's history, heritage and the metropolis it has become.

He was accompanied by Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai and Chairman of Dubai Executive Council, and Sheikh Maktoum bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Deputy Ruler of Dubai and other senior officials.

Sheikh Mohammed then ascended one of the two towers, and crossed the 100-sq-m bridge where he viewed the historic and modern landmarks of the emirate.

The Dubai Frame is a 150-m-high, 93-m-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, visitors can view older parts of the city such as Deira, Umm Harare and Karama, stated the report.

Lauding the project, Sheikh Mohammed said Dubai Frame was indeed an elegant architectural feat, it added.

He also praised Dubai Municipality's efforts to "achieve this cultural and global attraction, that represents a solid development for the tourism industry in the UAE."
