The World's Largest Property Company By Capital Is Building The World's Tallest Tower In Dubai

Emaar, which is listed on the Dubai stock exchange, is building its flagship project called 'Burj Dubai' or Dubai Tower to a staggering 700 meters (2,296 feet) and more than 160 stories. This mammoth tower, the centerpiece of a 20-billion-dollar venture featuring the construction of a new district, "Downtown Burj Dubai," will house 30,000 apartments and the world's largest shopping mall. The tower alone will cost over 1 Billion, and at the height of construction could have 20,000 workers on site. Toronto's CN Tower will be dwarfed by this new project, as well as others planned for Southeast Asia.
