Height of Burj khalifa

The Burj Khalifa took six years to build. Foundational excavation work commenced also in January 2004, and the tower formally opens on January 4, 2010. However, the opening took place before the interior was completed. Built to contain a combination of commercial, residential, and hospitality operations, the tower attained completion at 162 floors and a height of 2,717 feet(828 meters), even though its intended size remained a well-held secret during its construction.

Island Park at Burj Khalifa

The Burj Park is a fantastic leisure destination in Downtown Burj Dubai, and it’s a terrific spot to see the famous Dubai Fountains. The Burj Park, which spans 29,000 square meters and runs alongside Burj Lake or the Dubai Fountain Lake, is located at the base of the Burj Khalifa Tower. It’s also known as ‘Burj Dubai Park,’ ‘Dubai Tower Park,’ ‘Burj Island Park,’ and so on, and it’s a great site to see The Dubai Fountains, especially at night, when specially designed light cubes magnificently light the park.

The park is surrounded by a 33-foot-wide walkway that connects it to the remainder of Downtown Dubai’s bridges. However, Burj Park is the ideal location for a stroll in the middle of breathtaking nature.

Princess Tower sits in the heart of Dubai Marina, one of the city’s busiest districts. This is one of the area’s tallest finished residential structures, and from 2012 to 2015, it was the world’s tallest residential tower. Hence, the tower which opened in 2005 and was completed by Tameer Holdings in September 2012, set a new standard for high-rise living. It is currently 1,356 feet tall and has 101 stories above ground. Even so Princess Tower has 763 residential units, including 1, 2, and 3-bedroom flats and penthouses. However, the spherical apex of the tower, designed like a domed crown and adds the final 185 feet to the skyscrapers in Dubai is the most visible feature.

Eng. Adnan Saffarini, a local architectural firm in Dubai, designed Princess Tower and the nearby Elite Residence and the Al Yaqoub Tower on Sheikh Zayed Road, two other supertall skyscrapers in Dubai.

While, the Princess Tower’s architecture style is Postmodern, as evidenced by the building’s varied façade designs.

On the segment below 290 meters, the façade pattern is nearly identical vertically. However, the design alters above that part, with glass cladding divided by a line of vertical panels and windows lining the upper section’s corners.
