REACHES NEW HEIGHTS
Think about this: The height of the world's first skyscraper equals 30 people, each six feet tall, stacked head to toe. The height of the Empire State Building equals 208 people stacked head to toe. It would take 453 people to reach the top of today’s tallest skyscraper, the Burj-Khalifa in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. Designed by American architect Adrian Smith, the structure is a whopping half-mile tall! See how it compares to other towers.
