Buildings are being constructed to even greater heights than ever before. However, many of these buildings are groundbreaking in more than just their height. They are being designed using state of the art technology and plumbing engineering services. Furthermore, they are being designed to be resistant to natural disasters that can occur in the area. Also, in the future, they may provide a refuge from rising sea levels. Additionally, some of these extremely tall structures will be able to accommodate large numbers of residents. There have now been buildings constructed to heights of more than two thousand feet. There have been these ultra tall buildings built in different parts of the world.

The current tallest building in the world is the Burj Khalifa in downtown Dubai. This building stands at an impressive 2,732 feet. Standing in the presence of this building is truly an incredible sight to behold. The structure extends far into the sky. Sometimes, the building can even be seen standing above the clouds. It was designed using the most advanced computer technology available, along with the most advanced materials available. However, there are more impressive things about it than just height. The building has a number of impressive features, at all the levels of the structure.

The building is not just an office building, like many extremely tall buildings are. Instead, there are actually people that live within Burj Khalifa. In fact, there are people that live at some of the higher levels of the building. There are residential areas that are located as high as the 108th floor. The building also contains a nightclub that is located on the 144th floor. There also is a mall that is located on the 124th floor of the building, along with multiple observation decks. One observation deck is located at the 124th floor. However, an even higher observation area is located at 1,812 feet (148th floor). Furthermore, the building is utilized at even greater heights. In fact, the building is used for corporate suites all the way to the 154th floor, which is nearly at 2,000 feet. The building also has been strategically designed to be able to withstand earthquakes.

However, these two towers reach far into the sky very close to each other. Not only that, but the buildings are actually connected. They are connected very high in the sky with a passageway referred to as the “sky bridge”.
