The Burj Khalifa acknowledged as the Burj Dubai just before its inauguration, is a mega tall skyscraper in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. It is the tallest construction in the earth, standing at 829.8 m (two,722 ft).
Development of the Burj Khalifa commenced in 2004, with the exterior completed five a long time later on in 2009. The key construction is strengthened concrete. The building was opened in 2010 as component of a new growth referred to as Downtown Dubai. It is developed to be the centrepiece of large-scale, combined-use growth. The choice to construct the building is reportedly based on the government’s choice to diversify from an oil-based overall economy, and for Dubai to achieve international recognition. The building was named in honour of the ruler of Abu Dhabi and president of the United Arab Emirates, Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan Abu Dhabi and the UAE governing administration lent Dubai funds to shell out its debts. The building broke quite a few height data, such as its designation as the tallest tower in the earth.
