Dubai has opened the world’s tallest building, renaming it the Burj Khalifa in honour and gratitude of the United Arab Emirates president Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed al-Nahyan. Plans have also been announced to open the world’s first Armani Hotel, which is located inside the tower, to the public in March.
The world’s tallest building, and Dubai’s most remarkable architectural achievement to date, is officially set to open today. But the final height of the Burj Dubai won’t be revealed until tonight’s opening ceremony, when Dubai’s ruler is expected to make an ascent of the 169-floor “superscraper”.
History is in the making as Seawings is flying high, ensuring that every glass clad meter of the tallest building in the world can be witnessed through the eyes of the public.
The world’s tallest building, the Burj Dubai, is going to be even taller than originally planned, developer Emaar Properties has announced.
