The delayed Dubai Frame project will be completed in October, a senior official confirmed on Sunday.
With the original opening planned for 2015, the delayed $43.6m project was said to be pushed back due to Dubai Municipality’s decision to replace the exterior claddings of the frame, Arabian Business reported.
Hussain Nasser Lootah, Dubai Municipality chief, said: “Work on the cladding is ongoing and will be completed by August. We will be opening the frame in October.”
Announced in 2013, the 150-metre-high, 93-metre-wide structure in Zabeel Park resembles a picture frame through which landmarks, including Emirates Towers and Burj Khalifa, representing modern Dubai can be seen on one side with views of older parts of the city, such as Deira, Umm Harare and Karama from the other side.
It will include 46 floors in total, as well as a roof level with an exhibition gallery and museum on the ground floor.
The project’s developer, Dubai Municipality expects the Frame to attract more than two-million visitors per year following completion.
