5 Truths about the Tallest Tower in the World

#5  It has way too many rooms

Burj Khalifa has 163 floors above ground and 1 floor below ground (I guess you can only go up or down. Not both). On these 164 floors, there are almost 3000 parking spaces, 304 hotels and 900 apartments. There are also 58 elevators, which travel at speeds of 10 metres per second, along with a specially designed elevator system for evacuations.         Source: [http://www.burjkhalifa.ae/en/the-tower/factsandfigures.aspx]
