At 318 meters, the Grand Hyatt Hotel is just slightly shorter than the Eiffel Tower in Paris (324 meters). For comparison, the tallest building in the world, Burj Khalifa in Dubai, is 828 meters tall. The Grand Hyatt has been the country’s tallest building since its completion in 2016. But we’re willing to bet there are already potential buildings that might take that title in the coming years.
