New details have been unveiled about the Dubai Steps monument - as well as new artist impressions of the project. 

Information about the mountain-like building were first revealed back in April as one of several big announcements by the Dubai Municipality - alongside The Convention Centre, The Gulf Safari, The Vertical Industrial City, The Hardware, Bicycles and Green Building Market and The Sewerage Tunnels.

It has now been revealed that the 25-storey structure is set to reach 100metres into the sky and is likely to be built near Union Square on the Deira side of the Creek. However, the exact location is yet to be confirmed.

Speaking to Emarat Al Youm, Dubai Municipality's assistant director general for engineering and planning said the monument would take no longer than a year to build, once construction gets under way. 

The 500-step tower is set to feature five dedicated rest and event areas (every 100 steps) for those tackling to climb the monument.

Climbing the attraction will be like walking up a 25-storey building, with it's overall purpose for sport, recreation and relaxation.

The Municipality hopes the attraction will be the perfect location for many new types of races and sporting events in the emirate.
