Fast facts

The landmark consists of two transparent towers, 150 metres tall.

They are connected by a 93 metre long bridge.

On one side, the towers and bridge frame the buildings on Shaikh Zayed Road, denoting ‘modern Dubai, while the other side includes views of Deira, Umm Hurair and Karama, symbolising ‘old Dubai’.

The ground floor has a museum that tells the story of the development of Dubai, with presentations spanning decades of city development.

These presentations are immersive experiences themselves with 3D technology and imagery. The main highlight is the Sky Deck which gives uninterrupted views of the entire city, both old and new.
