828m metres, 2717 feet, and more than half a mile tall; Dubai’s Burj Khalifa pierces the sky, standing proud as the world’s tallest building to date. Spotted from more than 95 kilometres away, the Burj Khalifa, like much of Dubai’s ambitious city, is testament to the skills, work ethic, and vision of the people in this inconceivably lavish metropolis. Three times the height of the Eiffel Tower and twice as tall as New York’s Empire State building, the architectural prowess and engineering genius showcased in the Burj Khalifa has made an impressive stamp on Dubai’s city. Spanning 160 storeys, the building’s epic viewing platforms on level 124 known as ‘At the Top’ offers Instagram-worthy photo opportunities while the tallest platform on level 148, dubbed ‘At the Top: Sky’ combines an interactive digital experience with otherworldly, spectacular views. Holding a remarkable set of world records including the highest observation deck, restaurant and nightclub, the Burj Khalifa remains forever in the city’s consciousness, it’s success in 2010 a point of pride for Dubai’s population after six years and countless man-hours in development. Why bother, you ask? Because they can.
