Dubai – Tallest Or Maybe The Most Expensive Building In World | Dubai is the proud owner of the tallest building ever built. Burj Dubai measures 828 meters, estimated at a cost of 1.5 thousand million dollars. Itâ€™s the new symbol of the country and it is eight and a half times taller than the Big Ben, five times than the Pyramid of Keops and almost double than the Empire State Building.
The 160 storey building is visible from anywhere in an area within 95 kilometers. Its inauguration overtook everything so far: fireworks lighted from all around, on and off the building, water jets dancing in the rhythm of the music played, lasers, a spectacle of sound and light.
This wonder of modern architecture includes over 1100 flats, numerous offices, stores, restaurants and the lower part includes a luxurious hotel.
The raising of this edifice started in January 2004 and lasted 22 millions of hours, the estimated water consumption is approximately 1 million liters daily and the temperature at the last level is 10 degrees lower than on the ground floor.
If it were to clean the outside part of the building it will last from three to four months at a non stop working program.
