Emaar Properties on Wednesday announced the launch of an exhilarating tourist attraction that will especially appeal to adventure lovers with the new Sky Walk, a 200-metre high cantilever observation corridor in the Address Sky View development in Downtown Dubai. Sky Walk offers the unique experience of taking in spectacular views from a height of 200 meters as the visitors navigate the observation corridor in safety harnesses, walking literally ‘outside the building’.
“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,” said Mohamed Alabbar, Chairman of Emaar Properties.
Each element was assembled on the ground over a period of three months from May to August 2017 and lifted into position using Strand Jacking Technology. The Sky Walk truss, the heaviest component, was lifted to the height of 200 meters using high-capacity hydraulic jacks and cables.
