Dubai developer Emaar Properties has threatened to cut access to facilities in the Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building, including elevators, over a dispute related to service charge payments.

According to Abu Dhabi’s The National newspaper, access to elevators, gyms and pools, as well as air conditioning, were due to be cut off on Saturday, before tenants were given a reprieve.

Emaar is said to have issued warning letters to tenants last month to residents that had not paid the fees.

“Burj Khalifa is a thriving lifestyle environment today, and we are committed to the welfare of the residents,” the company said in a statement emailed to Arabian Business on Monday. More info
