Dubai became home to the world’s tallest tower - the Burj Khalifa years ago 13. Inaugurated on January 4th, 2010, the 838-metre tall tower put Dubai on the world map and soon became an iconic structure that draws thousands of visitors annually to view the majestic structure.

If you have ever wondered how it feels to be "on top of the world", we have the answers for you. Burj Khalifa residents tell us how it feels to live in the tallest tower, the million-dollar view they get and the world-class facilities they enjoy.

The tower has a separate area where residents can watch the spectacular fireworks that Burj Khalifa is famously known to ring in the new year. The residence park offers an unrivalled view of the show, one of the most keenly awaited new year celebrations.

“What I love the most about the tower is its safety and security,” said Nimmy Shareef, who bought an apartment on the 64th level of the tallest tower in 2011. “Everything in the tower works like clockwork. No one can get into the building without prior permits, this ensures that the facilities are not misused. It is so systematic, and you feel extremely safe knowing how well the building is secured.”

Another resident Salim Moopen said, “This year, I had eight guests to watch the fireworks with me. It is really a nice feeling to be able to walk into the park and watch the fireworks peacefully with your family and friends.”

For Salim, living at such an iconic spot has felt ‘ordinary’ through the years. But for friends and family, it will always be an awe-inspiring place, so he never gets tired of hosting guests.

Salim enjoys working from home with a captivating view, “I have the Dubai Fountain view [as I work], and I love it. The facilities in the building are also world class. Every couple of floors there is a swimming pool and fully equipped gym. There is a coffee shop with unlimited beverages on the 123rd floor along with the observatory where I sometimes hold business meetings.”
