Emaar Properties announced the launch of an exhilarating tourist attraction that will especially appeal to adventure lover with the new Sky Walk, a 200-meter high cantilever observation corridor in the Address Sky View development in Downtown Dubai.
At level 53 of Address Sky View, and suspended at the imposing height of 200 meters, Sky Walk is another first-of-its-kind in Downtown Dubai.
Address Sky View, a residential and hospitality project, also features the iconic 85-metre-long Sky Bridge, at 220 meters high, featuring eight units of luxurious Sky Collection Duplexes, a 70-metre-long infinity pool and other amenities.
It opens to the entire expanse of Downtown Dubai including its famed attractions such as Burj Khalifa and The Dubai Fountain. The views expand further afield to the upcoming new icon Dubai Creek Tower and of the Arabian Gulf.
A global team of over 300 engineering, construction and design experts worked on the project over a period of one year to achieve a new milestone as the Sky Walk, weighing over 350 tons of structural steel, has been lifted to position using customized strand jacking technology.
The 30-metre long cantilever Sky Walk, fixed to the structure of one of the two Address Sky View towers, is a half-oval structure offering 45 meters of walking distance. To ensure maximum comfort level of visitors, high-tech tuned damping parts are being fixed underneath the Sky Walk.
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. Lifting the Sky Walk in place is a true engineering feat accomplished seamlessly by a team of experts from across the world. Sky Walk is another demonstration of the global collaboration that our nation promotes.”Add to Favorites
