As long as architects keep building up (and up and up), folks are going to want to check out the view from way up in the air. Well: The Burj Khalifa just unveiled a new observation deck that gets visitors a little closer to heaven on the 148th floor — that’s about 555m. Gulp.
At the Top SKY is now one of three observation decks in the ultimate supertall — the other two are on the 124th and 125th stories — and Guinness has confirmed it’s now in the record books for highest in the world.
It’s not cheap to take the two-elevator journey — tickets are over $US100 — but once you’re there, it’s just about taking in the scenery while hanging out in a luxury lounge (of course) and most likely reflecting on how insane it is that structures can be so exceptionally massive.
