The title of “World’s Tallest Building” comes at no small price for the Burj Khalifa. In fact, it’s so huge that some landlords and tenants have refused to pay service fees since 2012, resulting in thousands of dollars in outstanding utility bills for the building.
But no need to worry. The solution to this financial glitch is simple: have maintenance shut off the air conditioning and elevators to its 163 floors. Not surprisingly, moving out is on many tenants' minds.
The Burj Khalifa has been haunted by financial problems from the beginning. Completed with the help of a $20 billion bailout by the Abu Dhabi royal family, two years years later, 20% of residential and 20 floors of office space were still unoccupied.
