Burj Khalifa turns 10: World’s tallest tower list 10 feats


DUBAI – The Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building, turned 10 on Saturday (January 4), drawing in crowds as it marked its milestone with a light and music show.

A list of the Burj Khalifa’s records were projected onto the façade as a LED light show accompanied by music played in the background.

The Burj Khalifa, which towers over Dubai at 828 metres, was inaugurated on January 4, 2010. An estimated 12,000 workers built the more than 160-storey mega skyscraper.

It has racked up 10 world records, including tallest free-standing structure in the world, highest outdoor observation deck, longest elevator travel distance and highest occupied floor. ICA/Expat Meida
