The Burj Dubai will be the world’s tallest tower and the centerpiece of the Gulf regions most prestigious urban development to date.
Its final height is officially being kept a secret due to competition; however, figures released by a contractor on the project have suggested a height of around 808 metres (2,651 feet). Based on this height, the total number of habitable floors is expected to be around 162. However, on the project’s official website, an interior graphic of an elevator panel shows floor numbers up to 195. A more recent article by building subcontractor Persian Gulf Extrusions states a final height “over 940 metres”, or at least 3,084 feet, but this has not yet been confirmed by Emaar. This new figure is 24 metres higher than the final height rumoured on burjdubaiskyscraper.com. Another source, from dubaimegaprojects.com reported an estimated final height of 1,011+ metres (3,317 ft.) and a floor count of 216+ floors.
I get a chance to see this building coming up every day. The place is going to be really great once this project is complete. I shall update some picture about this project next week 🙂 .
