DUBAI, July 30 (Bernama) — The world’s tallest building, Burj Dubai, is set to officially open on Dec 2, according to a report.

Citing a senior architect working on the project, the Arabian Business said the date coincided with the National Day of the United Arab Emirates (UAE).

“This will be a huge achievement and a big celebration for the UAE and for Emaar, particularly as it’s UAE National Day,” the unnamed architect told the business news provider.

The opening date as well as the final height of the super tall structure being developed by Emaar Properties that dominates the Dubai skyline have been among the best-kept secrets in town.

Burj Dubai, the centrepiece of Emaar’s flagship mega project, the US$20 billion Downtown Burj Dubai, will feature residences and commercial space as well as hospitality elements.
