Depends. The Address Hotel (the white tall building) is 306 meters. The rest, including the smaller ones are in the 100-250 meters range I would guess.

One of the best photos of the Burj I've ever seen. It looks so graceful and powerful at the same time.

I think it's a great use of the space. It probably only supplies enough power for a few offices but every little bit helps.

Perhaps Emaar is looking at a 300 year payout for the 6 level addition to the annex, with the solar panels.

Hi Phil.
There is no level 162.
How about an answer to the height of every level ?
Here is a link to a zip of my BK plan, methodology, labeled render, and 2 text files with assorted info.
Scroll down to the download this file link - the other download buttons are ads for other programs.

Hi Sale.
You were in 'The Offices' ?!
That shot is taken from the 'notch' out of the annex roof, right ?
I saw your shots over at SSL as well.
Do tell where you went and if those areas looked to be completed.
Details man - we want details (the full CSI version - please)...

Burj khalifa has 162 floors,perhaps has more,but 162 is recognized number.So the 162th floor is the top floor.I want to know how high the top floor is from ground.the top part of burj khalifa is so slendor,so sometimes it looks shorter than shanghai tower.
btw,is there any room above 650 meters?

I don't imagine myself walking anywhere other than Dubai's old town, because the rest of the city is just... plain car-oriented.... trying to cross one of those streets alone would give me a headache
