What’s on top of the Burj Khalifa? World’s tallest building mystery

Mystery surrounds a structure which has appeared on top of the Burj Khalifa, which has also seen a number of helicopter fly-past in recent days.

The purpose of the cage-like structure is currently unknown, but it is believed a spectacular major event is being planned.

Last month www.constructionweekonline.com reported how Dubai-based fitness coach Colin Philips, from the UK, said he would love to have a shot at jumping from the world’s tallest building.

After smashing the previous record of 105 bungee jumps and going on to complete a further 50 jumps he said: “I have Burj Khalifa in my thoughts.

 “Thoughts are playing in my head, but let’s see what happens. It’s good to keep challenging yourself.”

The 32-year-old jumped from a crane at Dubai Autodrome to raise awareness of breast cancer. At 90m-a-shot, his record breaking feat was the equivalent of leaping 16 times the height of the Burj Khalifa.
