Described as both a ‘Vertical City’ and ‘A Living Wonder,’ Burj Khalifa, developed by Dubai-based Emaar Properties PJSC, is the world’s tallest building.
Rising gracefully from the desert, Burj Khalifa honors the city with its extraordinary union of art, engineering and meticulous craftsmanship.
At 828 meters (2,716.5 ft), the 200-storey Burj Khalifa has over 160 habitable stories, the most of any building in the world. The tower was inaugurated on January 4, 2010, to coincide with the fourth anniversary of the Accession Day of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum as the Ruler of Dubai.
Arguably the world’s most prestigious address, Burj Khalifa is responsible for a number of world-firsts. The tower became the world’s tallest man-made structure just 1,325 days after excavation work started in January 2004.
