Visitors to Burj Khalifa will now get a better view of Dubai to marvel at, as the glittering new spiral flight, linking levels 124 and 125 of the iconic building has been unveiled.
Level 124 is home to ‘At the Top’, the observation deck which opened in 2010, and Level 125 form part of the journey that takes visitors to the observation deck, the world’s highest, on the 148th floor.
Now, visitors can move to ‘At the Top’ and catch a glimpse of Dubai from level 125 with new spiral staircase.
Premium ticket holders to At the Top, Burj Khalifa SKY, can visit all three levels (124, 125 and 148), making their way to 555 meters.
This 36-step white oak spiral flight stretches 100m and is adorned with crystal LED Chandelier with an enclosed glass façade that opens to view of Dubai. On enjoying the scenic beauty from Level 124, visitors can now explore one level higher, that serves as a tribute to Arab arts and culture, and is designed to feature a Maharabiya motif.
This spiral flight was built with no disruption to existing services and work has been undertaken in 24-hour shifts using 1200 man-hours, after being conceptualized deploying 3D modelling techniques.
Built with 60 metric tonnes of steel, 700 square m of glass and 350sqm of stainless steel cladding, this spiral flight can accommodate 150 people at a time.
