Monday sees the long-awaited opening of the Burj Dubai, not only the world’s tallest building but the world’s tallest building by some 1,000 feet. At 2,683 feet (2683 feet = 817 meters) tall, it is the height of the current highest skyscraper, Taipei 101 in Taiwan, with the Eiffel Tower perched on top.

It has been designed so that those who wish to do so will never have to leave, or even descend below the 108th floor, at about 1,300 feet.

That is the height up to which there will be residential apartments. For work, you can nip to the offices upstairs – anywhere up to the 160th floor, in fact. To eat, you can visit the restaurant on the 122nd, and to exercise you can use the gym on the 123rd, about 1,440 feet off the ground.
