The Burj Dubai, soon to be the world’s tallest tower at 818 m, is set to open on December 2, 2009, according to Arabian Buiness.
The magazine’s source was a “senior architect working on the project, who said: “This will be a huge achievement and a big celebration for the UAE and for Emaar, particularly as it’s UAE National Day. It will be the first time the public can enter the building.”
Office space in the building will go for about US$43,000 per square meter.
Apparently also, The Armani Hotel, which is part of the building, will also be opening its doors the same day.
Previously, the developer, Emaar Properties, which is 32 percent-owned by the government of Dubai, had not said when the building would actually open. The company did say earlier this week that the final glass installation would be installed in the coming weeks.
