Constructed in 1964 by Overseas AST just like many of Dubai’s other landmarks, it had to be renovated in 1972 since the material used in the construction process was sub-standard and beach sand was used for concrete. This resulted in corrosion of the structure, which was built to celebrate Dubai’s first oil exports.
