It’s one for Guinness


Burj Dubai, the world’s tallest building located in downtown Dubai, the United Arab Emirates, opened to the public on Jan. 4. The more than 800-meter (2,625-foot) tall skyscraper was built in a joint venture between Korea’s Samsung C&T Corporation, Belgium’s Besix Group and the U.A.E.’s Arabtec. It took almost six years to complete after the groundbreaking ceremony took place in 2004. [YONHAP]
