We do not usually succumb to typical tourist sightseeing but the Burj Khalifa in Dubai, is the WORLD’s tallest tower (to date), so of course we have to go take a look. And it is an amazingly stunning architecture!
Bringing Burj Khalifa to life required a combination of visionary ideals and solid science. In the process, the project amassed an awe-inspiring number of facts, figures, and statistics.
At over 828 metres (2,716.5 feet) and more than 160 stories, Burj Khalifa holds the following records:
• Tallest building in the world
• Tallest free-standing structure in the world
• Highest number of stories in the world
• Highest occupied floor in the world
• Highest outdoor observation deck in the world
• Elevator with the longest travel distance in the world
• Tallest service elevator in the world
Burj Khalifa is a beautiful vision by day OR night. The building house a 4-story fitness and recreation annex (The Club), 37 office floors (The Corporate Suites), 144 private residences (Armani Residences Dubai), 160 guestrooms and suites (Armani Hotel Dubai), 900 Burj Khalifa residences (The Residence) and a fine dining restaurant, Atmosphere, on level 122.
On level 124 is the observation deck – At the Top, Burj Khalifa. A beautiful saying ushers our way up the Burj Khalifa.
