    For now, we hear Ain Dubai is in its last lap of completion. This “marks the first time the modern observation structure has been one complete wheel since construction began,” Meraas said in a statement.

    What Else?

    Speaking about the tallest structures in the city: The Frame stands at 150 metres, while the observation deck in Burj Khalifa is perched at 555 metres. Another addition to the observation decks in Dubai will be the Palm Tower, which will also boast an infinity pool 210 metres from the ground.

    Ain Dubai was expected to open early this year, but Meraas has now confirmed 2020 as the official year. Expo 2020 will start off on October 20, 2020, and Ain Dubai will be open gates a day before.
