Only after a month of its opening, the world’s tallest building has already shut its doors to the public due to repair works. Reportedly, the viewing platform of the Burj Khalifa has been closed to the public for an indefinite period. Building company Emaar Properties said that electrical problems were partly to blame and it is unclear whether this problem is extended to the entire building. The platform opened to the public following the dramatic naming ceremony of Burj Khalifa on 4th January.
The raised area is mostly enclosed but incorporates an outdoor terrace with guard rails. A statement from the builder stated, “Technical issues with the power supply are being worked on by the main and subcontractors and the public will be informed upon completion”.
Let’s hope the tallest building recovers from this inconvenience soon.
