It is the world's tallest tower, standing over 2,716.5 feet high (that's over a half-mile)...! Its 124 floors is home to corporate offices, luxury residential living, a restaurant on the 123rd floor and an outdoor observation deck (not for the faint of heart) on the 124th floor.
Not only is the Burj Khallfa the tallest building on the planet it also holds many other world records as well, such as: the tallest free-standing structure, highest number of stories, highest occupied floor in the world, highest outdoor observation deck, an elevator with the longest travel distance, and tallest service elevator in the world.... WOW!
....watch the amazing videos below of the tower against the skyline of the other buildings and of the grand opening celebration one year ago...!
Compare with the world's 'other' tallest towers...
