Here's a video compilation of the world's tallest building (as of Sept 2010) from a recent trip to Dubai, UAE. Fast facts: --It's nearly twice as tall as two Empire State Buildings put together --Weighs 500,000 tons (and has already sunk 2.4 in / pilings are 150 ft down) --It has 164 floors --It can be seen 90 km/60 mi away (on a clear day) --The temperature on average is 10 C cooler at the top vs. the bottom --It's designed to sway 6 ft at the top in high winds --The A/C required is the equivalent of melting 12,500 tons of ice A DAY --The observation deck is on the 124th floor (but NOT the tallest ob deck in the world...that still goes to the CN Tower and Shanghai WTC) --The highest recorded wind speeds at the top: 198 km/h (123 mph) --It was built with 28,601 panes of glass.
