Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat (CTBUH) named Dubai a world’s leader in number of supertall buildings. According to the international classification, megatall buildings are 300-plus-meter-high skyscrapers, of which Dubai has 18 out of 100 constructed buildings all around the world.
Second place in the ranking was awarded recently to New York. Here, in December 2015 the seventh megatall skyscraper 432 Park Avenue was completed, officially bringing the total number of such buildings in the world to a slump number of 100. But most of them are still in Dubai, and the emirate is not going to give this record up.
In the coming years Dubai real estate market will offer real estate investors some new residential properties in four new super-tall buildings. International construction company RP Global is planning to build a skyscraper RP One in Dubai's Business Bay; Meydan Group has already commenced the construction of more than 100-meter Entisar Tower on Sheikh Zayed Road and also has proposed to build a 711-meter Dubai One in Meydan One area.
Another anticipated addition to the Dubai’s skyscrapers family is Burj 2020. Project’s developer Dubai Multi Commodities Centre has recently disclosed some details of the building’s design, which is to be built in the area of Jumeirah Lakes Towers, with ground breaking expected this year.
Living in skyscrapers is particularly popular among those wanting to buy an exclusive property in Dubai, so the world's tallest building Burj Khalifa, as well as other skyscrapers in Dubai Marina, Downtown Dubai and Business Bay continually leads the ranking of the most expensive apartment and penthouses transactions in Dubai.
