A new video has been released showcasing how the windows of Dubai Frame, the 150m-tall Guinness World Record-holding architectural landmark built by Dubai Municipality and visited by Arsenal FC’s football stars Mesut Ozil and Shkodran Mustafi in March 2019.

Dubai Frame has been designed to resemble a picture frame through which the city’s landmarks, including Emirates Towers and Burj Khalifa, are visible. The project provides views of both newer Dubai developments, as well as Old Dubai, which includes neighbourhoods such as Bur Dubai, Karama, and Deira.

In the 18 months that it has been operational, Dubai Frame has picked up numerous accolades for its engineering excellence. The project was named Commercial Project of the Year at the Construction Week Awards 2018, held at Dubai’s JW Marriott Marquis hotel on 4 December.

Dubai Financial Market-listed property developer Emaar signed a memorandum of understanding with the city’s municipality in October 2017 to manage Dubai Frame. As part of the agreement, Emaar was to provide guidance on the operations of the building, and advise on the selection, recruitment, appointment, and training of its staff.
