The deadline for the completion of one of the many ambitious Dubai future projects in set: Emaar told the press that the construction of the Dubai Opera House will be completed in 2016.
The building of the Opera House will become the main dominant of the same name residential community Opera District in Downtown Dubai, and, as the developer claims, by originality of its architecture will be on a par with the world famous Sydney Opera House.
Currently, all concrete works, steel structures and electro-mechanical works at the construction site of the Opera House are either completed or in the final stages of completion, so the work is progressing according to the plan, and sometimes ahead of schedule — said Emaar.
Atkins is the main architect of the project, while Consolidated Contractors Company (CCC) was chosen as the main contractor of the project.
Dubai Opera House facade will be overlooking Mohammed Bin Rashid Boulevard, with the view of Burj Khalifa and the adjacent Burj Park, as well as the Dubai Fountain. The unique design of the Opera House, resembling a sailing ship, will allow construction to transform in three different modes in order to become a concert hall, a theater and a flat platform for events and other ceremonies. Thus, Opera House will become a cross functional omni purpose hall suitable for ballet and drama large-scale performances, musicals, operas, as well as for hosting conferences, lectures, receptions and other events. Depending on the configuration of the hall it will accommodate 1940 to 2040 spectators.
Certainly, the presence of this iconic construction in the area will enhance the already high enough popularity of the Opera District residential community, located in the heart of Dubai. Currently, Emaar is building two elite residential real estate complexes Forte and Opera Grand there, the cost of properties in which starts from US $ 735 per square foot.
