Meraas, the Dubai-based holding company behind the conception, development, and construction of the potential marvel Ain Dubai, has issued a statement, confirming the progression of the wheel past the halfway stage.
Ain Dubai will be the tallest and longest observation wheel across the globe upon its completion. This project has the potential to become a beloved facet of the Dubai skyline and an iconic destination.
The colossal structure will utilise 9,000 tonnes of steel, the statement said, which is nearly 25% more steel than was used in the construction of the Eiffel tower. The magnitude, scale, and luxury of Ain Dubai is encapsulated in the contents of its capsules, which are being manufactured by Hyundai.
The capsules will be able to contain up to 40 people at a time. These spacious capsules have been contrived with the sole purpose of providing as much light and visibility to the observer in conjunction with an infallible sense of comfort. Some capsules could be converted into fine dining destinations that offer upscale service and could also contain a licensed bar for a unique experience.
Abdulla Al Habbai, group chairman at Meraas, said: “Ain Dubai reflects our ambition of creating new destinations that contribute to HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of UAE and Ruler of Dubai, the vision of a city where people are encouraged to create, explore, and enjoy. The destination is designed to bring people together from around the world and will enhance Dubai’s reputation as a leading choice for business and leisure travellers. It also embodies the pioneering and innovative nature of a city that has pushed the boundaries of modern engineering.”
