“Currently, there is no Owners’ Association for Burj Khalifa . Due to the unique nature of the project and the tower being an icon for Dubai and the UAE, it is essential that the management structure developed serves the interest of all stakeholders,” an Emaar Properties spokesperson said.

“In this respect, Emaar is working closely with the relevant governmental authorities, including Real Estate Regulatory Agency ( Rera ), to ensure that the all stakeholders’ best interests are protected.”

Emaar ‘s response came after a group of owners in the world’s tallest tower named themselves on the board of the interim owners’ association on November 22, 2012. The Dubai-based law firm, appointed by them, submitted the application for registration of the name of the chairman and board members to Real Estate Regulatory Agency in January this year.

In a letter submitted to Rera , the law firm said: “… we tried to register the members of owners’ association via the adopted electronic system, however, we failed to complete this process because the requested documents are not available in full since they are held by the developer. Therefore, the board of owners’ association for Burj Khalifa hereby requests you to instruct the concerned people to register and adopt the members of the board of owners association and chairman of the board in the adopted electronic system.”

Neither the law firm nor the chairman of the board responded to emails sent by this website. More info
