Burj Khalifa model popular at China expo
Dubai, September 21, 2010
A model of Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building, is winning over visitors to the UAE pavilion at an ongoing exhibition in Shanghai.
The eye-catching model was provided by the Burj Khalifa’s developer, Emaar Properties, the global property developer with significant presence in key international markets.
Ahmad Al Matrooshi, managing director, Emaar Properties, said the showcase of Burj Khalifa in the UAE Pavilion underscores the national pride associated with the tower, and the country’s can-do ability to create global icons.
“A distinguished lifestyle destination that celebrates the highest standards of modern living, Burj Khalifa is indeed a proud example of the UAE’s development capabilities,” he said. “Today, the key challenge before policymakers is to undertake powerful urban projects that bring about a marked improvement in the quality of living.”
“Burj Khalifa – which is a vertical city in its own right, featuring homes, offices, the first Giorgio Armani Hotel and Residences as well as leisure outlets – is a model in modern urban infrastructure development.”
“The overwhelming response of visitors to the display of Burj Khalifa in the UAE Pavilion will further enhance interest in the economic opportunities offered by the country and also drive investor interest in our world-class projects,” he added.
The 828-metres high Burj Khalifa also anchors Emaar’s flagship mega-project, Downtown Dubai, a 500-acre community.
The UAE pavilion is expected to host millions of visitors during the Shanghai World Expo and will run through October 31. – TradeArabia News Service
