Burj Khalifa will no longer be world's tallest building, to be replaced by ‘Kingdom Tower’

The building will be a mixture of luxury housing, office spaces, serviced apartments, and luxury condominiums. The Kingdom Tower, slated for a $1.23 billion price tag, is likely to very soon steal the crown from Burj Khalifa.

Burj Khalifa in Dubai needs no introduction! 14 years ago in 2010, it was officially opened and became the tallest building in the world. It has set many records by being one of the major tourist attractions in Dubai.

Several songs have been released in its reference. The Burj Khalifa construction began in 2004 and was officially opened in 2010. The 828-meter-long building was part of a strategy to shift from relying on oil to building an economy focused on business, tourism and luxury.
