The tallest building in the world

Tallest building in the world, The Burj Khalifa in Dubai.
At 2,722 ft
The Burj Khalifa in Dubai is the tallest building in the world

Here are some comparisons

Construction began on 21 September 2004, with the exterior of the structure and completed on 1 October 2009. The building officially opened on 4 January 2010

A 304-room Armani Hotel, the first of four by Armani, occupies 15 of the lower 39 floors.

The  sky lobbies on the 43rd and 76th floors house swimming pools. Floors through to 108 have 900 private residential apartments (which, according to the developer, sold out within eight hours of being on the market). An outdoor zero-entry swimming pool is located on the 76th floor of the tower. Corporate offices and suites fill most of the remaining floors, except for a 122nd, 123rd and 124th floor where the At.mosphere restaurant, sky lobby and an indoor and outdoor observation deck is located respectively.

There are a total of 57 elevators and 8 escalators and the building has 2,909 stairs from the ground floor to the 160th floor.

Look at the buildings next to it!
No trick or treat here....just the facts.

Don't want to go there. Don't even want to look at it. Gives me stomach squiggles.

I get a nose bleed in a tree house so I will never venture into any of these. Too Too tall to go into but If I make it to either, I will snap a photo of it from the ground. Can you tell I am not fond of heights? Peace
