An investigation into a fire that struck Emaar’s The Address Fountain Views in Dubai’s downtown in early April is currently ongoing, a senior official revealed.

Olivier Harnisch, chief executive officer of Emaar Hospitality Group, said at a conference on Monday that an investigation into the cause of the fire was being done, though he did not comment on how much the project would be delayed.

"Our safety and security standards are the highest both in projects and in hotels. We are still investigating the cause and will share this information in due time," he said. 

He also said that The Address Downtown is being “fully renovated” and that it was due to open at the end of the year, though no specific opening date was given.
