Mohammed Mubarak Al Mutaiwei, assistant director general for communication and community sector and the official spokesperson of Dubai Municipality said in an official statement that the project will be opened soon after completion of all project works and operations.
The announcement came after a local news report incorrectly indicated that the Dubai Frame would be completed this week. Mutaiwei called on the public to not circulate false news and to make sure that all information related to the project comes directly through the official channels of the Municipality, the statement added.
He said: “Dubai Frame is one of the unique projects that Dubai Municipality is keen to implement. It is an aesthetic icon and an architectural landmark that culturally connects the past with the present, and an important attraction for visitors, tourists and residents alike. It is expected to attract about two million tourists annually.”
Dubai Frame or “Berwaz Dubai” consists of two transparent glass towers of 150m height that are connected by a 93m bridge at the top. The space between the towers gives a pretty clear view for the city from a high altitude.
On one side, it frames the images and buildings of Sheikh Zayed Road, to symbolize the modern city of Dubai, while the other side of the Berwaz includes landmark areas of Deira, Umm Hurair and Karama, which symbolize the old Dubai.
