Money & Power: Man behind tallest building in the world plans for more

The Burj Khalifa is the tallest building in the world standing at 2,716 feet, dominating the skyline of Dubai.

Erin Burnett recently met with Mohamed Alabbar, the tower's developer, and while he's proud of the building he calls "his girl", he's already planning to build bigger and better.

    Erin, please let your guests close their responses before you interfere. I find it burdensome to listen.

    Erin never asked the key question of this builder is his 'girl' fully rented? He said that the reason he did not publish his financials is that the profits are embarrassingly high. I doubt it. I suspect many his renters are not real. Our Empire State building, started in 1929, was not fully rented until the 1950's, a fact that was never publicized.

      My firm provides the food service for the tower and I can state it is approximately 75% rented.
