Dubai Frame to open on New Year's Day
The city's newest landmark
Dubai is known for its iconic landmarks: the Burj Khalifa, Burj Al Arab and Palm Jumeirah are just some of the sites on must-visit lists the world over. And come January, we're set to get yet another jewel in the city's cultural crown with the official opening of the Dubai Frame.
Started in 2013, the Dubai Frame was designed to "highlight Dubai's landmarks" and provide visitors with a journey through time as they travel from the ground floor to the 93-metre long bridge observatory located 150 metres in the air. From here, visitors will take in unprecedented views of the city skyline with a 360-degree vantage point that offers views of 'old Dubai' and 'new Dubai.'
The Frame, worth Dh160 million and designed by Fernando Donis, will also house the Dubai Past Gallery as well as the Dubai Future Gallery, and was made in an environmentally-friendly design.
It was announced today that the gold structure will open to the public on January 1, 2018, much to the delight of both residents and visitors to the city alike. According to a statement, Gulf News reports that the Frame "will be a New Year gift to the people."
