Ithra Dubai Marks Another Milestone with The Link Now Lifted to its Final Position 100 Meters Above Ground Level
The Link will be a destination as it tops the wish list of discerning travelers across the world
In a highly anticipated event, Ithra Dubai, fully owned by the Investment Corporation of Dubai, accomplished a new milestone with the lift of the 192-meter long first section of the Link, now connecting the two towers of the iconic One Za’abeel 100 meters above ground level.
The master real estate developer carried out over 12 days one of the heaviest lifts in the region, weighing in at around 8,500 tons. More than 110 special jacks and heavy-duty strand jacks were used for the operation, calling for a concerted effort by a team of global experts in the fields of construction, engineering and contracting.
The first section of the Link is now in its final position. The second lift of 900 tons, scheduled for October, will complete the Link structure to reach its final length of 226 meters and that will top the list of engineering marvels and set to break an international record for the longest cantilevered building in the world.
