Construction of the Burj Khalifa began in 2004 and completed in 2009. It has since remained the tallest structure and building in the world with a total height of 2,722 feet and capacity to withstand earthquakes up to 7.0 magnitude. A small miracle in the urban desert landscape of Dubai, United Arab Emirates.
I’m so thankful to live in the greatest city on earth (aside from Philadelphia) with a never ending treasure trove of photographic locations. This image was shot from Rixos the Palm at sunset, capturing 3 prestigious locations in one shot: Burj Al Arab, Jumeirah Beach Hotel and Burj Khalifa.
