The world’s tallest building is now in Dubai, and it’s called the Burj Khalifa. The building is 828 meters (2,717 feet) tall, and it has 163 floors. It’s the tallest man-made structure in the world, and it’s also the tallest free-standing structure in the world.
The Burj Khalifa was designed by Adrian Smith, who also designed the Willis Tower in Chicago. The building was built by Samsung C&T, and it cost about $1.5 billion to build. The building was completed in 2010, and it opened in January of 2011.
The Burj Khalifa has a lot of firsts. It’s the first building to have more than 100 floors, it’s the first building to have more than 600 meters (2,000 feet) of usable space, and it’s the first building to be taller than 800 meters (2,600 feet).
The building has a lot of amenities, including a hotel, offices, residences, and a observation deck. The observation deck is on the 124th floor, and it has an outdoor deck that’s almost 500 meters (1,600 feet) above the ground.
The Burj Khalifa is the tallest building in the world, and it’s an amazing feat of engineering.
