The already impressive Dubai Frame has been years in the making, and it’s finally almost ready to open to the public. According to Dubai Municipality, the new landmark, that frames old and new Dubai from each side, will be finished in November.
Tickets to visit the 150 metre-high structure will cost Dhs50 for adults and Dhs30 for children, allowing visitors to go to the top, where they will see a view of modern buildings such as the Burj Khalifa on one side, and parts of old Dubai like Deira on the other.
There is a clear glass walkway at the top, offering an impressive 360 view of the city. There will also be a gallery and a museum on the ground floor to show how the city has changed over the years.
The project is worth Dhs160 million, and was designer by Fernando Donis and his office DONIS, taking inspiration from the Expo 2020 logo.
“It shows from one side the landmarks and building of Sheikh Zayed Road to symbolize the modern Dubai, while showing from the other side landmarks for Deira, Umm Hurair and Karama areas to symbolize the old Dubai,” Dubai Municipality previously said on Instagram.
