World's 'vainest' skyscrapers

September 5, 2013

The United Arab Emirates (UAE) has the "vainest" skyscrapers in the world, a report measuring the extent of spires and other height-boosting additions to the top of buildings said on Thursday.

The Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat (CTBUH) said unusable space at the top of the UAE's 19 tallest buildings was an average 19 percent of their total height, a measure it called the "vanity height". (Reuters)
