    It looks to be an impressive and successful development as a whole. My congratulations to the developers who thought of it that way and who offered residences instead of just commercial space in Khalifa. One can see why new business models are needed for such buildings comparing it to old standards like the Empire State in NYC. The tip of Khalifa is near twice as tall as Empire but the later has 2/3rds the floor space while costing 1/3rd in 2019 dollars. That said, the rest of the development would certainly be worth much less without the Khalifa. I think that is where the project stands out...as a complete concept.

    To everyone talking about the absence of a sewage system, I'd like to add that due to the buildings great height, some engineering challenges must've been there when trying to add in a sewage system. I believe it's not as easy as just *adding a sewage system* when you're working with such a great height.

    Mr. Adrian Smith really outdid himself when designing the Burj Khalifa. While it being very tall and modern, I am still impressed by the fact that they managed to add so many living and interactive environments while not ruining the shape

      @Random World etc it's actually not very expensive to do what she did
      .. even the most simplest job can get you to go there in economy ticket, take a taxi there from the airport to the mall, get a ticket where theres a place in the mall called, "to the top burj khalifa" just buy a ticket from there, which is not very expensive but will cost you a little, and if you show them your ticket, they will guide you through a walkway until your at the top, and then now you will be in the observation deck all the way in clouds and you will feel it... breathtaking. I went there and did this and I'm not rich nor in a rich family. Yes it will cost quite a bit and you need to be at least employed with an ok job and a good salary which is easy if you have qualifications but you dont need to be rich and full of yourself with a business to do this.. no you don't! Anyway if you get to do this, Enjoy!

    They should make a mega tall pyramid. It seems like the most stable structure for tall building. It may take more width than height, but it’ll probably be there forever.

      @Don't Matter said no one ever.
      Skyscrapers are vertical cities. The Twin Towers at the World Trade Centers had 50,000 people employed. People from over 90 countries worked there. On September 11, 2001 at 8:46 am a United Airlines plane hit the North Tower and at the time there were 17,000 people inside both towers at that moment.

    I think the building is stunning. And this is one time I think the spire really adds to the look of the building. I wish this building was in NYC in place of the freedom tower which I think it very lackluster when compared to buildings like this or the Jeddah tower.

      @Tyrone Jones whoa whoa whoa! Wait a minute. PRESENT UAE is good with righteous laws. But the one a few decades ago treated their labour's like dogs. One of my family friend went to uae looking for opportunity. When he went the for the first time in 1977. The country was nothing but a big stretch of never-ending deserts, he eventually got a job there and worked as a constructor. He worked on more than 30 buildings including burj khalifa in just 48 years. He only got a ten ft room which he had to share with 4 co workers, and a low calorie meal thrice a day. In all his works he received less than 15$ per day and had to for 12 hour with only 30 minutes break. He said the highest he got was 35$ per day when he was working on burj. So ya the middle east was not so nice to their labour's back then. And at present their country is run by immigrants

    How many Dubais was actually involved in building Burj. Construction company from UK, construction workers from around low paid Asia countries. Only money poured in by Sheikh. The building itself is amazing I stayed there a few days in Armani hotel.
