Burj Tower, Dubai
Posted January 4, 2010on:
The tower will be divided in three main parts. The bottom will host a luxurious hotel, the middle will only have residences – only a few will be able to afford it, since the cost of the apartments will be around $4,000 a square foot – and the top and most exceptional part will be sold, not rented to companies that will set their offices there in order to be above their competition (at least physically).
Even thought the crisis hit Dubai last year, 100% of the space was sold beforehands. Debit crisis is now hitting the city, so the construction of this tower is a representation of extreme excess, something very few people in the world can nowadays “enjoy”.The Burj Tower in Dubai is now the tallest building in the world. With a height of 828 meters (2,600 feet), it has surpassed the previous title-holder, the Taipei 101, by 300 meters! It was inaugurated today in a show of light and fireworks that delighted the population of Dubai.
