Race to build Dubai’s second tallest tower heats up

21 May of 2015 by

Dubai is home to the iconic 828-metre high Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest tower, but companies here are now vying to claim second place on the list of tallest towers in the emirate.

[…] the trend of building ‘megatall’ towers — those which reach more than 600 metres high – is likely to increase, particularly in the Middle East. […]

Currently, Dubai has 917 high-rises and 465 skyscrapers, states Emporis, which collates data on building worldwide.
