Lootah inspects Dubai Frame project progress


Dubai, 13 November 2017:


Eng. Hussain Nasser Lootah, Director General of Dubai Municipality on Sunday conducted an inspection tour of the Dubai Frame project to check its work progress and preparedness.


Lootah was accompanied by Eng. Dawood Al Hajiri, Assistant Director General for Engineering and Planning Sector and a number of senior officials and engineers in charge of the companies executing the Dubai Frame project.


Dubai Frame is one of the unique projects that Dubai Municipality is keen to implement, which is an aesthetic icon and an urban architectural landmark linking the past with the present, to make the area an important attraction for visitors, tourists and residents alike. It is expected to attract nearly 2 million tourists a year.


The Frame or “Berwaz” in Arabic is in the form of a frame, with two 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 conveys 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.


The ground rib has been designed to include a museum that tells the story of the city’s development and information about its past and present and displays the details of old Dubai in pictures and with the latest technologies, and how the city evolved and how it is now.


The ground floor ends at the main panoramic elevator to go up through the rib of the Frame to get to the top floor, which is the horizontal upper rib made of glassed floor and sides, where visitors can see the actual Dubai, not through the images and documentaries, but, the visitor can see through the modern Dubai, including the Burj Khalifa, major marine projects, large shopping malls, and metropolitan streets. When the visitor turns to the other side he can see the old Dubai, Deira and Karama areas, and once he gets tired of enjoying the view of the general locations he can take a break in the cafe, and then come down through a panoramic elevator located on the other side.


In terms of design, the project takes into consideration the ease of movement and flexibility in designing spaces. The building will accommodate the future changes and developments in this type of buildings, in addition to the distinctive shape of the building, which is one of the most unique buildings in the world. In view of the fact that the project is situated within the Zabeel Park, it was considered that the building will contribute to the development of the urban environment of the area and to be a landmark in it and a significant addition to the developments taken place in the emirate, after studying all the determinants and factors that would affect the designs of the building, such as an integrated relationship between the building and the neighbourhood as well as the visual focus and the viewing angle.
