History was made in July 2007 when construction of the Burj Khalifa reached the 140th floor. At that point it surpassed Taipei 101 in Taiwan, China which, at 508 metres (1,667 feet) had held ‘the tallest building in the world’ title since it opened in 2004. In 2008, the Burj Khalifa stole another world title by surpassing the KVLY-TV communication antenna in North Dakota, USA to become the tallest man-made structure on earth.


Burj Khalifa is a world record-breaking structure, standing a breath-taking 828 metres high and enjoying a total built-up area of 526,000 square metres.
