At the moment, Burj Khalifa ranks as the tallest building in the world, although the Jeddah Tower in Saudi Arabia is expected to take the title by 2021. That being said, the Dubai Creek Tower (still under construction) is likely to lead to the future of skyscraper engineering in 2022.

After the construction of the Chicago Home Insurance Building in the 1900s, the rise in height of tall buildings became the order of the day. Skyscrapers such as the Chrysler Building and the Empire State Building have ruled New York City for some time since 1902.
The Chrysler Building became the first skyscraper to break the 300m / 948-foot barrier before it was crossed by the Empire State Building. The latter went down in history as the first building with more than 100 floors at an altitude of 381 m / 1,250 feet. In total, the Empire State Building has 102 floors.
A few decades later, more skyscrapers were erected in various cities around the world, including the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center, which in 1971 became the tallest building in the world. 1,362 feet. Both towers surpassed the Empire State Building by more than 36m / 118 feet.
The Sears Tower was built in Chicago in 1973 (two years later) and rose to 442 m / 1,450 ft with 110 floors, surpassing the World Trade Center by about 25m / 82 ft. Years later, Petronas Towers stood in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. 10 m above the Sear Tower in 1998.

Due to its height, the Taipei 101 is famous for being 59m / 194ft taller than the previous tallest building in the world.
In 2010, Burji Khalifa took the lead at a very high distance. Standing at 828 m / 2,717 ft, this ruling building is increasing the tower height of the world's tallest building Taipei 101 by as much as 60%.
Burji Khalifa has since maintained a record to this day with its breathtaking design that creates a unique man-made structure to stay up to about a mile in the sky. In addition to its beauty and splendor, Burji Khalifa is famous for breaking the record of many skyscrapers around the world. The building of the Empire State Building is almost doubled. At the same time, it breaks the record for the world's highest structure in the history of mankind.
