Tallest Building In The World

Burj Khalifa: The tallest building in the world

Burj Khalifa Reaching a breath-taking 828 m (2,716 ft 6 in) into the sky, this new skyscraper would soon be described as a ‘vertical city’ and become an icon of the modern world. All over the globe, people were asking whether it was even possible to construct a building that high – and that was when the Burj was designed to be 'just' 518 meters tall, 10 meters taller than the Taipei. It actually grew by a whopping 310 meters during the design process – approximately the height of the Eiffel Tower in France. Construction began on 21 September 2004, with the exterior of the structure completed on 1 October 2009.
