Happy new Year to everyone from Viziononline. The New Year is a great time to make new plans, possibly to move – well to day sees the opening of the world’s tallest building – how about a penthouse in Burj Dubai?
The building is almost twice the height of the Empire State building and rises an impressive 800m tall which means it can be seen almost 95km away! It’s an architectural and engineering masterpiece. It’s location means that it need to be resistant to geological faults and incredible winds – during it’s construction it’s been hit by lightning twice and also has to suffer an earthquake which it’s stood up to with ease.
In terms of cost – well the figures are staggering – the whole project cost a cool $1.5bn and what’s more impressive in these financial times is the the developer has actually made a profit!
