Burj Dubai - the tallest building in the world
The largest and most famous construction project currently taking place in Dubai is of course the Burj Dubai. Opening in 2009, the Burj Dubai is a super duper tall skyscraper set to be the tallest in the world (818 meters or 2,684 ft). Currently it is the tallest man-made structure on Earth but Burj Dubai will not officially gain the title of tallest building in the world until its completion in 2009.
The total budget for the Burj Dubai project is about US$4.1 billion and the price of office space had reached $4,000 per sq ft.
