About Burj- Dubai

January 4, 2010

1. The building is over 800 metres (2,625 ft) tall and has more than 160 stores, the most of any building in the world.

2. Besides an observation deck on its 124th floor affording 360-degree views of the entire city, Burj Khalifa is home to the world’s first Armani Hotel, luxury offices and residences, and a variety of other sophisticated leisure and entertainment facilities.

3. Burj Khalifa will ultimately be the place of residence, work and leisure for a community of up to 12,000 people.

4. At their peak, some apartments in the Burj were selling for more than 1,900 US dollars per square foot, though they now can go for less than half of that. Emaar has said the entire Downtown Burj Khalifa development, which includes the tower, will cost 20 billion US dollars to build.
