Dubai Tallest Building-Tower In The World | Burj Tower

World tallest building and tower is situated in Dubai called Burj Tower2004 The construction of what will become the world's tallest building - the Burj Tower in Dubai - will commence in January, 2005, with plans for the 800 metre tall, 160 floor skyscraper to be completed by 2008. The building will also contain residential, commercial, hotel and entertainment facilities, including the largest shopping mall in the world. Located on Sheikh Zayed Road, the complex will contain a city within a city - a planned Old Town with intimate streets and architectural detail to create a special ambience with the mystery of yesterdays Arabia, in what is expected to be the centrepiece of the Gulf region's most prestigious urban development.

Burj Dubai Tower was commissioned by Emaar Properties, as part of its US $8 billion Downtown Dubai development project. Built of glass, aluminium, concrete and steel, Burj Tower will be the tallest building in the world at 800 metres (2,640 feet), with a total floor space of 500,000 sq m (5.35 million sq ft). Taipei 101 in Taiwan (509 metres), Petronas Towers in Malaysia (452 metres) and the Chicago's Sears Tower (442 metres) are currently the world's highest man made towers. Recently China and the New York World Trade Centre redevelopment have announced plans to exceed these records, but the Burj Tower has anticipated challengers and will dig extra-deep foundations to enable more storeys to be added later if needed.
The Residences comprises 6 exclusive towers at the world's most prestigious address - the Burj Dubai. The Residences is an integrated development within the 20 acres of land embracing a spectacular man-made lake, the world's tallest tower and world's largest shopping centre. Construction is already underway and the Residences will feature one, two and three bedroom luxury apartments.

The Burj Dubai Boulevard will open out at intervals in four main piazzas (named Piazza of Water, Wind, Fire and Earth) that leads to Tower Park, surrounding Dubai Tower. Tower Park will contain 15 hectares of land containing water cascades, manicured lawns and exotic plant terraces. There will also be 16,000 underground car parking spaces, with more parking above ground.
