DUBAI | Al Berwaz Tower - Dubai Frame | 150m | 492ft | T/O

Unbelievable project going on... a frame shaped observation tower.

The Dubai Municipality announced on Wednesday that it will start construction-work on the iconic Dubai Frame project adjacent to the Stargate theme park in Zabeel Park next month. The Director-General of the Dubai Municipality, Hussain Nasser Lootah, said: “We have opened tenders and will be giving the assignment to the apt contractor according to our plan.”

The implementation of the Dh120 million project, a window-shaped structure that will give panoramic views of old and new Dubai from a 150 feet-high glass bridge, was ordered in July 2012 with a plan to complete it by this year end. In May this year, the municipality said the project would be completed by the end of 2014.

However, the civic body on Wednesday said the unique structure was expected to be ready by the second half of 2015, after a one-year delay from the last announcement made six months ago. In the latest statement, the municipality also gave the exact location of the tower at Zabeel Park. Lootah said the Dubai Municipality conducted extensive studies and research to identify the most ideal location for the project. “It was after an (intense) study and extensive consultation that the (location) was decided — near the Stargate of Zabeel Park — which is a famous point for visitors and tourists,” he said in a media statement.

Stargate, an edutainment theme park, is located near the Gate 4 of Zabeel Park in the heart of Dubai. The image released by the Dubai Municipality on Wednesday showed the tower with transparent glass walls in dusk bronze colour.

I'm not sure if there is a need for an observation tower, but this surely looks like a fun new icon and tourist spot.
I can already imagine them posing for pictures in front of it, looking like they are readjusting a frame on the wall

From this observation point, you'll see the entire Dubai skyline, Burj included.

I saw it yesterday in the city compilation thread and I thought it was ridiculous and awesome at the same time.

Well, this is interesting. I'm not sure what all it will add to the city, but I don't think it will take much away from it.
