Tallest building in Dubai

Dubai, the largest city in the United Arab Emirates, has become the hub of multi-purpose activities and grabbed the world’s attention through its’ modern high rises buildings.

1- The Princess Tower
2- The Emirates Palace
3- The
Burj Khalifa

The Princess Tower Dubai:

The Princess Tower is actually based in the Dubai Marina in the UAE city and overlooks the stunning Persian Gulf. The 1356 foot tall residential-only skyscraper was at one stage the tallest residential building in the world. From its completion in 2012, the Guinness World Records handed them the acclaimed title, but the tower was replaced in the standings during 2015 with the completion of 432 Park Avenue in New York. With residential only1396ft in height. The Princess Tower has 101 stories above ground and six basement levels where the parking garage is based, giving us 107 stories altogether.

If the tower surrounding area of Dubai Marina looks familiar, the location was heavily featured in the 2016 film Star Trek Beyond. Construction on the building began in 2006. The postmodern design was put together by architect Adnan Saffarini. The overall project was developed by Tamir Holding Investment, who was also involved in other projects in the city, including the Silver Tower and Regal Tower. While the building became one of the tallest in the world, it wasn’t the goal from the start.

Didn’t plan to hold the world record:

The original plan was that the tower would have 90 stories above ground, but when the developers discovered that they could reach the world record, new plans were created to further boost the height. The President of Tamir Holding Investment at the time, Federico Tauber, stated in an interview. At the time, the plot was very expensive and from a developer’s point of view, we had to maximize the use of that land. Nobody really knew how tall it was going to be, but we worked to make it as tall as possible.

The Princess Tower Dubai

In the end, the Princess Tower made use of the 37,405 square foot land and created 1,799,995 sqft inside the building to get an idea of the cost of the land.

In 2018, a square foot in downtown Dubai was around $545. So if we multiply that by 37,405, we get nearly a lot.

Ok, $20,386,000 for just that land alone.

The building was placed slightly closer to the waterfront than its neighboring structures. This was done in order to provide the best water views for the apartments on the side of the tower.

The Emirates Palace:

The United Arab Emirates also hosts many of the most expensive buildings in the world, one of which is based in the capital city of Abu Dhabi. The Emirates Palace, which made an appearance in the 2015 film Fast and Furious Seven.

The Emirates Palace Dubai

This luxury hotel has 302 grand rooms and 92 suites. Most of the rooms are lathered in marble and gold, adding a massive touch of wealth. The highest floor in the hotel contains six ruler suites. These rooms are reserved for the UAE’s Royal family. The hotel definitely caters to the very rich, with 15,000 bottles of cognac available on-site and albino Caviar.

This caviar only has 6 kg created every year. As such, the cost per kilo comes to nearly $42,000. Prices to stay here starts around $6,000 and shoot up to 12,250 per night. Yet the biggest takeaway is the cost of the building itself. The construction fee reportedly came to $3 billion.

The Burj Khalifa:

The only stone’s throw away from the Princess Tower is the Burj Khalifa. This structure has held the title of the world’s tallest building since 2009, with a height of 2722ft with 163 floors altogether. Due to the structure’s vast size, it takes three months to clean all the windows. One of the other biggest selling points is the Dubai Fountain outside, located across 30 acres on the Manmade Burj Kalifa Lake, the fountain is reported to have cost 218,000,000. When it’s active, the jets can fire out 220 gallons of water that are illuminated by 6600 lights and 50 color projectors.
