Description
The Burj Dubai (Arabic: برج دبي "Dubai Tower") is a supertall skyscraper currently under construction in the "New Downtown" of Dubai, United Arab Emirates. Although not yet complete, it is currently the tallest high-rise building in the world. When it is completed, it will be the tallest man-made structure in the world. Scheduled for occupancy in 2009, the building is part of a 2 km² (1 mi²) development located at the "First Interchange" (aka "Defence roundabout") along Sheikh Zayed Road at Doha Street. Skidmore, Owings and Merrill LLP (SOM) of Chicago is the lead architect, structural engineer and mechanical engineer of the Burj. George Efstathiou of SOM is the Managing Partner on the project, while Adrian Smith, formerly of SOM, was the Design Partner. #building #burj_dubai #dubai #new_downtown #offices #skyscraper #tallest #tower #United_Arab_Emirates
