Emaar Properties has announced the launch of Sky Walk – a new tourist attraction coming to Dubai.
The attraction will be a 200-metre high cantilever observation corridor in the Address Sky View development in Downtown Dubai.
Visitors make their way through the observation corridor in a safety harness – they are literally outside the building 200m up.
The attraction will sit at level 53 of Address Sky View. At its at the height of 200 metres Sky Walk is another first-of-its-kind in Downtown Dubai, Emaar said in a statement.
It will be 30-metres long and fixed to the structure of one of the two Address Sky View towers. It will be a half-oval structure with 45 metres of walking distance.
Mohamed Alabbar, chairman of Emaar Properties, said: “Address Sky View is one of the prestigious upcoming developments in Downtown Dubai that not only features a world-class hotel and serviced residence but also the iconic Sky Bridge and now a new Sky Walk.
“Appealing to adventure seekers, Sky Walk will add to the touristic appeal of the city and offer visitors a never-before experience.”
The team behind the project faced design challenges. One such problem was the extensive use of steel, and the ambient temperature difference. They overcame these challenges using several innovative approaches.
Also featured at Address Sky View is the 85-metre-long Sky Bridge and a 70-metre-long infinity pool.
Last year Emaar opened a ‘Downtown Slide’. Emaar also operates At the Top, Burj Khalifa SKY.
