Burj Dubai to open January 2010

The record breaking Burj Dubai, which stands at over 818m tall, is to open on 4 January 2010, eclipsing all other tall towers by over 200m

Developed by Emaar Properties, the Burj Dubai has over 160 storeys, the most floors in any building anywhere in the world.

“The completion of Burj Dubai represents a new era in architectural design excellence in Dubai,” said director UK and Ireland for the Government of Dubai, Department of Tourism and Commerce Marketing Ian Scott. “As the world’s tallest structure, it will attract tremendous attention from every corner of the globe, the perfect platform to promote the Middle East and for Dubai to showcase its diversity and assert its position as one of the world’s most important tourism destinations.”
