Eye on Dubai: Burj Opens!

New, 2 comments

Today Dubai cuts the ribbon on the world's new tallest building, the Burj Dubai, and the financial windfall may just be enough to restore confidence in the emirate. Or not. The SOM-designed tapering tower is reportedly 2,684 feel tall (the exact height is still a secret) and contains condos, offices and an Armani-designed hotel. The apartments are said to be 90% sold at prices that have "held up" despite Dubai's bursted bubble. The WSJ reports that apartments were selling for $2,776/foot at the height of the market. Check out these photos from inside the place. [CNN]
