Dubai, UAE; March 28, 2011: Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building developed by Emaar Properties PJSC, set a date with history, as Alain Robert, dubbed as the ‘French Spiderman,’ scaled the exterior of the tower in a record-clinching feat on Monday, March 28, 2011.

The historic climb was held as part of the ‘Education Without Borders 2011’ international student conference organised by the Higher Colleges of Technology. Robert has earlier scaled more than 100 of the world’s super-tall structures, often without the aid of safety harnesses.

Mr Ahmad Al Matrooshi, Managing Director, Emaar Properties PJSC, said: “Alain Robert’s scaling of Burj Khalifa is indeed momentous, and we are honoured to host the climb as part of the prestigious ‘Education Without Borders’ conference that brought the world’s leading educationalists and thought-leaders to witness the unprecedented feat.”

Thousands of spectators watched the French adventurist in action from Burj Park and Downtown Dubai. All safety precautions were taken with the cooperation of various Governmental authorities.

Robert saw the attempt to climb Burj Khalifa as a true challenge. Also a motivational speaker, he uses his high-rise conquests to highlight the inborn potential of man to overcome any challenge.

Towering high at a height of 828 metres (2,716.5 ft), Burj Khalifa is now a full-fledged community featuring world-class homes, offices, hotel suites and restaurants. The tower features the world’s highest public observation deck with an outdoor terrace, At the Top, Burj Khalifa. Another key attraction is At.mosphere, an exclusive fine dining restaurant situated on Level 122 of the tower, at a height of 442 metres (1,350 ft), which opened recently.
