The Burj’s appearance is based on a flower called the Spider Lily (Hymenocallis), which is native to southern states of America, South America and Mexico. Upright 828 meters high, the Burj Khalifa is hard to miss. The world’s tallest tower naturally rules the Dubai skyline, but the true majesty of the building is best appreciated up close or, even better, from inside. Rising gracefully out of the desert, the Burj Khalifa is the world’s tallest building. You’ll enjoy stunning views and dramatic panoramas from the top of this 163-floor structure.
Soaring over the city at an impressive 2,716 feet (828 meters) and boasting 200 stories (160 habitable), the $1.5 billion Burj Khalifa project was unveiled by Dubai’s ruler Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum in January 2010. All 160 rooms and suites occupy the entire 39th floor with each decorated with bespoke furnishings and state-of-the-art mod cons controlled by iPads.
It is incredible feat of human endeavor taking around 22 million man-hours to be completed. Standing at an awe-inspiring 828 meters and with over 160 floors it’s a monumental needle piercing the desert sky, with the top spire visible from 95 km away. To put its scale into context against former winners of the tallest building moniker, it is about twice the height of Empire State Building and the total length of stainless steel bull nose fins used is equal to 293 times the height of France’s Eiffel Tower. You can also see the most beautiful views from the top of this gigantic building The Burj Khalifa is twice the height of New York’s Empire State Building and three times as tall as the Eiffel Tower in Paris.
It even surpassed Taiwan’s Taipei 101, which at 1,667 feet (508m) had held the world title since it opened in 2004. Laid end to end, the Burj Khalifa’s pieces would stretch over a quarter of the way around the world. This tower sits atop a man-made lake that wraps around the building offering a dramatic and breath-taking view of the building. You need to be here and see things for yourself because words alone are not sufficient to describe the atmosphere that you will get to see here and most interesting thing about here is the weight of the concrete that is used in the construction of this building is about the weight of 100,000 elephants.
The design of this tower is an abstraction of the Hymenocallis which happens to be a flower that has long petals extending from its center. While the exterior is undoubtedly a tribute to architectural excellence, the Burj has also established itself as a thriving hub for art and design supported by global patrons. More than 1,000 works of art — a mixture of contemporary works, sculptures and installations — by Middle Eastern and international artists adorn the tower’s interior and surrounding boulevard with many pieces specially commissioned as a tribute to the spirit of global harmony
