Burj Khalifa Overview
A headlining accomplishment by Emaar Properties, Burj Khalifa underlines the can-do spirit of Dubai. Described as both a ‘Vertical City’ and ‘A Living Wonder,’ Burj Khalifa rises gracefully from the desert, honouring the city with its extraordinary union of art, engineering, and meticulous craftsmanship.
At 2,716.5 ft, the 200 plus storey Burj Khalifa has 160 habitable levels, more than any building in the world. With a total built-up area of 5.67 million sq ft, Burj Khalifa features 1.85 million sq ft of residential space and over 300,000 sq ft of prime office space. That is in addition to the area occupied by the Armani Hotel Dubai and the Armani Residences.
With 900 residences including studios and one, two, three, and four-bedroom apartments, The Residence in Burj Khalifa is designed for the connoisseur.
The Burj Khalifa is the tallest building in the world and also the tallest structure ever built. It is an awesome structure that dominates the Dubai skyline and is the centerpiece of the Downtown Burj Dubai community. The Burj Khalifa also holds other records such as having the highest nightclub in the world (144th floor), the highest restaurant (122nd floor), second highest observation deck (124th floor) and the worlds second highest swimming pool (76th floor).
Downtown Dubai is a world-class mixed-use development featuring the tallest building in the world, The Burj Khalifa. Key developments in Downtown Burj Dubai helped fuel the real estate revival of Dubai that commenced in 2012. As of Q1 2016, there are a total of 21 ready projects and 19 projects under-construction (several of these projects contain multiple buildings).
Downtown Dubai was announced in 2003 with the Burj Khalifa (then known as Burj Dubai) being the headline grabber as the tallest building in the world. The community is master-developed by Emaar Properties and most of the developments within Downtown are by Emaar themselves (only a handful of projects are by private developers). Since Emaar have developed over 90% of the community, the quality & consistency of the development has been maintained.
The center-piece of this project is of-course the Burj Khalifa, but there are a dozen other complexes and stand alone residential buildings. Except for a couple of projects, all the buildings in Downtown Burj Dubai are developed by Emaar themselves – therefore the quality & standard of the community has been maintained. We have classified the residential buildings in this community as either High-end or Luxury.
