When Emaar Properties reaches for the sky, it really reaches for the sky. A global real estate group, Emaar Properties is perhaps best known for developing the world's tallest building. The tower known as Burj Khalifa opened in Dubai in 2010, reaches more than 2,700 ft., and includes 160 stories. Other Emaar projects include residential and commercial developments throughout the Middle East as well as in Europe, North Africa, North America, and Asia. Its residential properties range from one-bedroom apartments to seven-bedroom villas, primarily in the United Arab Emirates. Since it began operating in 1997, Emaar has built some 16,000 homes.
