Dubai Is Building The World's Tallest Tower! Every year, more and more impressive heights are reached in the race to build the world's tallest skyscraper. Consider that only a century ago, the tallestbuilding in the world was the Woolworth Building in New York: at 241 metres, it was 13% taller than the previous record-holder, the Metropolitan Life Insurance Company Tower in New York. Taipei 101, in Taiwan's capital, broke the psychological barrier of 500 meters in this new millennium. In recent years, the Burj Khalifa in Dubai has firmly held the record at 828 metres, topping out at the tallestbuilding in the world. This dominance, however, is not likely to last much longer. With the Dubai Creek Tower, designed by architect Santiago Calatrava, they are now ready to overcome another psychological barrier: 1,000 metres. Let’s take a look at Dubai Creek Tower and some other skyscraper mega projects around the world.
