The World’s Tallest Building

Started in 2004 and scheduled for completion in late 2009, the world’s tallest building today is located in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. Burj Dubai, 162 stories, developed by Emaar Properties, is a mixed of hotel and luxury apartments, with four luxurious pools and spas, 15,000 sq-ft of fitness facilities and an observation deck on floor 124. Although the official height has been kept private until completion, the height is estimated around 2,684 feet.

Other than Burj Dubai, which means “Dubai Tower” in Arabic, the US$20-billion mega project of downtown Burj Dubai has manmade lake, shopping malls, business centers and premium hotels.

According to Mohamed Alabbar, Chairman of Emaar Properties, Burj Dubai goes beyond its physical specifications. It is about the human spirit of attaining the seemingly impossible and setting new benchmarks.
