Architectural Consultant
  • The estimated handover date was November 2008.
  • Construction began in Q4 2004 and was completed by 2010.
  • The architect of the project was Skidmore, Owings & Merrill.
  • The main building work was done by Samsung Engineering & Construction.
  • Other companies involved with Burj Khalifa include Belhasa Six Construct, Emaar Properties and Arabtec Construction.
  • At 829 metres The Burj Khalifa is the tallest man-made structure in the world.

  • 330,000 cubic metres of concrete were used in the construction of Burj Khalifa along with 39,000 tonnes of reinforced steel, 103,000 square metres of glass, and 15,500 square metres of embossed stainless steel.

  • The building is cleverly designed and positioned to deflect the strong prevailing winds.

  • There are 3 sky lobbies with fitness and spa facilities, swimming pools and reception rooms.

  • A man-made lake surrounds the building and contains the world renowned Dubai Fountains which run throughout the evening all year round.

  • In April 2014 French base jumpers Vince Reffet and Fred Fugen leapt from the building's pinnacle to break the world record for the highest base jump from a building.

  • There is a bar and restaurant, Atmosphere, on the 122nd floor.

  • The tower was originally called The Burj Dubai but the name was changed in honour of H.H. Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed al Nahyan, the president of the UAE. ‘Burj’ is Arabic for ‘Tower’.

  • Designed by Adrian D. Smith, FAIA, RIBA Design Partner at Skidmore Owings & Merrill LLP, Burj Khalifa became the world's tallest self-supporting structure on September 12, 2007.

  • Water collected from the building's air conditioning system is used to irrigate the surrounding landscaped areas.

  • The first 39 floors are occupied by the Armani Hotel which contains 160 guest rooms and 144 residences.

  • The triple-lobed footprint of the building is based on a desert flower native to the region.

  • There are two observation decks: one on the 124th floor and one on the 148th floor, the world's highest.

  • The exterior cladding is of reflective glazing with vertical tubular fins of stainless steel. The cladding system is designed to withstand Dubai's extreme summer temperatures.

  • The building uses double-decker elevators travelling at up to 600 metres a minute.

  • The window cleaning is carried out by a team of 36 specially trained workers. The process takes 3-4 months to complete.

  • Owing to the building’s great height there are water tanks in the plant rooms on every 30 floors. The system supplies 946,000 litres of water every day.

  • South Korea's Samsung Corporation won the construction contract after an 11-month bid process.

Surreal Experience
The location, the flat itself
Crowded pool, neighbours
I am fortunate enough to live in Burj Khalifa, which is a wonderful experience. If I had to find a flaw, then the size of the pool areas and how crowded they can get with large families and their visitors coming at the same time can be far from a more… 5 star experience. Also there are a lot of young guys, who keep on entertaining groups till late at night that can very annoying and loud. The flat itself is wonderful, and living in the heart of Dubai, being so close to Dubai Mall is all a huge plus.Show less

A true icon
Quality of the whole building, amazing view
Neighbours having too many parties
We`ve been living here for two years now, and simply love it. Yes the security measures can be a bit too much sometimes, and we have neighbours who like to have parties any day of the week, but it all fades away when we look out our window and see more… the coastline and the beautiful sunset. The apartment itself feels warm and cozy, although the shape of the building results in some unusable spaces in both bedrooms. The pool area is simply breathtaking.Show less

View, service, location, appliances
Walls, doors are not soundproofed (noisy, smell can be disturbing sometimes)
Guests can't enter unless the tenant gives advanced permission. Free valet parking for guests. Excellent customer service, kind, professional staff. 24 hours reception, customer service support. In-house dry cleaning, room service. Lot of construction on the fountain side which makes it very noisy 24/7. Can't open any windows.
