1 in 5 super-tall completed buildings found in Dubai

Dubai is known for its skyscrapers, many of which had become a platform for daredevils arrested after grabbing their 15 minutes of fame through hair-raising acts.

Now, a listing shows the city hosts 19 “supertall” buildings out of the top 100 skyscrapers in the world. Yet it is en route to bagging the 20th too, but the final height of its next super-tall skyscraper remains a guessing game for construction gurus.

A listing of The Skyscraper Center of the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat (CTBUH) cites Dubai as the city that hosts nearly 20 per cent of the world’s tallest completed buildings.
