About Dubai Frame

Dubai Frame: A Symbolic Landmark

Dubai continues to push boundaries making the impossible possible, and this picture frame is no exception. Located in Zabeel Park, the Dubai Frame building is positioned in such a manner that you will get to witness the various chapters of the city from all angles. On one side, you will see the new Dubai, with its tremendous growth through the towering skyscrapers. On the other side, you will see the old Dubai overlooking Deira, taking visitors back to where it all began. The frame symbolically bridges the gap between these two chapters. It also shows viewers the future of the UAE through a dedicated exhibition.

Dubai Frame: Behind the Scenes

Go big or go home, this is the motto Dubai lives by, and the Dubai Frame is a representation of it! Although not as tall as the Burj Khalifa, this golden picture frame is nearly 500 feet (150 meters) tall — almost 200 feet taller than the Statue of Liberty! The attraction covers over 9,900 square meters, and almost 2,000 tons of solid steel was used to make what is the largest picture frame in the world today.

The laminated glass panels cover 2,900 square meters, and the exterior of the Dubai Frame shimmers from the golden cladding made of stainless steel paper, covering more than 15,000 square meters. The exterior design is covered in circles, representing the upcoming Expo 2020. The Frame consists of 48 floors, which can be covered in 75 seconds by taking the lift, where you get to experience the panoramic view that the city has to offer.

The two towers were built in 1999, making it among the first few buildings to be created as a stepping stone to modern Dubai, which was going to exponentially grow in the following years. One tower consists of 56 floors, while the other has 54. Both buildings cover 42 acres, comprising of gardens, lakes, waterfalls, and public seating areas.

Deira

As you make your way to the other end of the frame, you’ll see what stands as old Dubai and the landmarks that continue to keep its past alive. Deira is one such area, bordered by the Persian Gulf, Sharjah, and Dubai Creek. Back in the day, Deira was the commercial center for trade and economic development. However, with time, its significance has reduced due to various reasons. Along Deira’s shore near the Dubai Creek, you will notice Port Saeed, which houses dhow cruises and small shipping boats, which continue to bring out the city’s richness and its history.

Al Karama

Karama is a residential district of Dubai and is among the older parts of the city. Due to the low-rise buildings, you can easily recognize this area thanks to its tight grid system, which covers only  2 square kilometers. It is home to thousands of locals and immigrants, making it the most populous area in Dubai. Due to its location, Karama is one of the most accessible parts of the city, and thus a travel-friendly destination for all. It also stands out for having a wide range of transportation available right in the city center, creating maximum convenience for residents to reach any area of Dubai easily.
