25 Tallest Buildings In The World

#01. Burj Khalifa

Burj Khalifa has redefined what is possible in the design and engineering of super high-rise buildings. By combining cutting-edge technologies and cultural influences, the building serves as a global icon that is both a model for future urban centers and speaks to the global movement towards compact, livable urban areas. The Tower and its surrounding neighborhood are more centralized than any other new development in Dubai. At the center of a new downtown neighborhood, Burj Khalifa’s multipurpose program focuses the area’s development density and provides direct connections to mass transit systems.
