Each floor is identical in plan, but is set 1.2 degrees clockwise from the floor below, giving the tower a distinctive form by way of an innovative, efficient, repeatable structure. The Marina-101 is not only the tallest building in Dubai Marina, it is the second tallest building in whole Dubai.

Burj Khalifa was designed to be the centrepiece of a large-scale, mixed-use development that includes 30,000 homes, nine hotels, 3 hectares (7.4 acres) of parkland, at-least 19 residential towers, the Dubai Mall, and the 12-hectare (30-acre) artificial Burj Khalifa lake. The decision to build Burj Khalifa is reportedly based on the government's decision to diversify from an oil-based economy to one that is service and tourism based. According to officials, it is necessary for projects like Burj Khalifa to be built in the city to garner more international recognition, and hence investment.
