The building is complete and the height has been revealed. The tallest man made structure that has ever been built is 828 m (2,717 ft) tall and is now called the Burj Khalifa. The height of the tower, which was one of the most closely guarded secrets during construction, was flashed onto a giant screen during the inauguration before a 400,000 strong crowd. Estimated to cost around Rs.6900 crores (US $1.5 Billion) the building was officially inaugurated on January 4th amidst flashy fireworks and much fanfare.

Dubai: The world's tallest building — the Burj Khalifa — has been sculpted from a toothpick.
The miniature replica of was created by Steven J. Backman, a San Francisco native who has been designing sculptures from toothpicks since he was a child.
Backman said: "The miniature replica I created of Burj Khalifa took me seven hours to create and a bucket of patience. As far as I know, it is the world's smallest replica of the world's tallest building."
Backman has also replicated New York's Empire State Building and a 13-foot long version of the Golden Gate Bridge.
Backman added: "I wanted to honour the world's tallest building by making the world's smallest toothpick replica of it.
"All of my artwork is one-of-a-kind. For this reason, I plan to make different sized replicas of the Burj Khalifa. They will be available in the UAE.
"In relation to the larger sculptures I have created of famous landmarks, the Burj Khalifa was one of the most difficult pieces for me to produce."
