According to *Constructionweekonline news report, Abu Dhabi-based real estate developer Miral said its $100m (AED367.2m) Clymb sports facility – currently under development in the capital’s Yas Island, where Yas Bay Arena is also under construction – would open in early-2020, in time for Expo 2020 Dubai, which opens its doors on 20 October, 2020.

Chief executive officer of Miral, Mohammed Abduallah Al Zaabi, spoke to Construction Week’s sister title Arabian Business and confirmed the opening of Clymb.

Clymb was announced in 2016 and will feature the world’s widest indoor skydiving flight chamber, with a width of 9.75m.

It will also include the world’s tallest indoor climbing wall at 43m.

Commenting on the progress of Clymb, which is being built by Zublin Constructions, Al Zaabi said Miral had also invested in ensuring visitors could easily access Yas Mall and Ferrari World through a connecting bridge.

“I could have saved money and let my customer walk outside, but the direction was to put more money to make that bridge to offer a unique experience,” he added.
