829m Height (164-story)
The Burj Khalifa is a mega-tall skyscraper in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. With a total height of 829.8m, the primary structure is reinforced concrete. It is designed to be the centerpiece of large-scale, mixed-use development. The design is derived from the Islamic architecture of the region, such as in the Great Mosque of Samarra. The Y-shaped tripartite floor geometry is designed to optimize residential and hotel space. A buttressed central core and wings are used to support the height of the building. Although this design was derived from Tower Palace III, the Burj Khalifa’s central core houses all vertical transportation with the exception of egress stairs within each of the wings. The structure also features a cladding system which is designed to withstand Dubai's hot summer temperatures.
