Can you imagine a building so tall that you could watch the sunset twice? At the Burj Khalifa in Dubai you can watch the sunset at the base of the building, then take the elevator to the observation deck on level 148 (highest in the world) and watch the sunset all over again. Of course it doesn't hurt that the elevators can wisk you to the to the observation deck at 1823 feet in less than a minute. Currently the world's tallest building, the Burj Khalifa measures 2717 feet in height (828 meters), including 163 floors above ground, 58 elevators, a 304 room Armani hotel, 6 exclusive restaurants, and 900 residences. It took 6 years, 12,000 workers, and 22 million man hours to complete. But despite all the amazing technology that went into this masterpiece, the exterior windows are still cleaned the old fashioned way... with a bucket of water and a squeegee.
