16 December, 2015
Almost 190 skyscrapers, including the Burj Khalifa, have been built in Dubai in the last 15 years, a staggering figure compared to London’s 23 for the same period. A property expert claims tall buildings are also gaining popularity around the world as urbanisation continues to grow. China will boast 800 buildings above 152 metres by the end of next year.
