The 17 most expensive buildings in the world

 The Austrian financial daily WirtschaftsBlatt recently released a ranking of the 17 most expensive buildings in the world . We observe in this one that the craziest projects are not necessarily the most expensive (the tallest tower in the world to date, Burj Khalifa, does not appear in this top). Do you think real estate prices are high? Take a look at the amounts below: they're astronomical . 40.7 billion euros is the sum of the buildings present here, and the first three already represent a quarter of this amount...

17. Wembley Stadium in London

The second largest stadium in Europe after Barcelona's Camp Nou with 90,000 seats, Wembley Stadium cost a total of 1.3 billion euros .

16. Taipei 101 Tower in Taipei

The Taipei Financial Center owes its name to the 101 floors that make up this 509-meter tower in the Taiwanese capital. It was the tallest tower in the world from 2004 to 2010 and cost €1.5 billion .

15. The Palazzo Hotel in Las Vegas

The hotel-casino opened its doors for the first time in December 2007. 1.5 billion euros were used to build this immense building made up of 3,068 rooms located in a 196 meter high building, the second tallest building in Las Vegas to this day.

14. Bank of China Tower, Hong Kong

Built to the plans of the architect Ieoh Ming Pei (the same one who built the glass pyramid of the Louvres), the tower is 305 meters high with two masts which reach a height of 367.4 meters. Inaugurated in 1990, the Bank of China tower cost the tidy sum of 1.6 billion euros , a pharaonic amount at the time.

13. Princess Tower, Dubai

Inaugurated in Dubai in May 2012, this tower measures 396 meters in height and is the largest residential tower in the world. The Princess Tower was crowned 13th place in this ranking with 1.6 billion euros spent on this project.

12. The Bellagio Hotel, Las Vegas

One of the most iconic hotels in Las Vegas, the Bellagio is the third most expensive building in the city. Its dancing fountains give it additional beauty. This is where the Ocean’s trilogy (11, 12, 13) was filmed. This gigantic complex still cost 1.7 billion euros .

11. Antilia, in Bombay

It is the most expensive “private” house in the world. With 37,000 square meters of floor space, more than the Palace of Versailles, this building is spread over 27 floors and 173 meters high. With a huge garage, a cinema, 3 helipads and other incredible amenities, India's richest man Mukesh Ambani is said to have spent 1.9 billion out of his pocket.

10. City of Dreams, Macau

Opened in 2009, City of Dreams includes a casino, 4 towers, 3 hotels, a huge shopping center, but all this came at a price: 2 billion euros .

9. The Venetian Macao (Macau)

The largest hotel building (3000 suites) and largest casino (50,700 m²) in Asia was built between 2004 and 2007. It is a copy of the casino hotel of the same name in Las Vegas, but its costs are much higher high: €2.2 billion .

8. The Palace of Parliament, Bucharest

With its living space of 350,000 square meters, it is one of the largest buildings in Europe. It is also the second largest administrative building in the world after the Pentagon. Renamed the Palace of Parliament after the fall of CeauČ™escu in 1989, it was originally called the “House of the People”. The Romanian dictator had thought too big, because his visits today do not bring in enough, while the building cost a total of 2.3 billion euros .

7. The Wynn, Las Vegas

This 78 hectare complex extends over 45 floors and has 2700 rooms. The “smallest” room covers 59 m². In addition to the five private clubs and 13 gourmet restaurants, there are numerous luxury boutiques. And of course, a casino. 2.4 billion euros is the cost of this building.

6. One World Trade Center in New York

2.8 billion euros is what this new project will have cost to make people forget the twin towers that collapsed here on September 11, 2001. With its 541 meters, it is the tallest building in the United States.

5. The Shard, London

The “shard” (of glass) that pierces the London sky was built by a Qatari investment fund. The latter made sure to come out with a nice bill: 2.9 billion euros .

4. The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas

This building is a hotel complex that also serves as a casino and was completed in 2010. It consists of two towers with a total of 3000 rooms and suites. A theater in the building offers 16,000 seats to spectators. The cost of this mega-construction is 3.1 billion euros .

3. The Emirates Palace, in Abu Dhabi

It belongs to the royal family of Abu Dhabi and was established in 2005. It was intended to be a palace but upon the death of Sheikh Zayed, it was transformed into a hotel. You can choose from 302 rooms and 92 suites, and each guest has their own butler. The construction of this palace hotel cost €3.3 billion .

2. Resorts World Sentosa, Singapore

Resorts World Sentosa is a resort located on Sentosa Island, off the south coast of Singapore. The main attractions are one of only two casinos in Singapore, a Universal Studios theme park, the Adventure Cove water park, and the Marine Life Park, which is home to one of the largest aquariums in the world. And the bill for this complex was steep: 4 billion euros . But there is worse…

1. Marina Bay Sands, Singapore

We stay in Singapore. The architect of this crazy project (Moshe Safdie) placed a 340 meter long garden with the largest infinity pool in the world above the three buildings. You will definitely find it interesting to go there given that it includes a hotel, a conference and exhibition center, a huge shopping center, an art and science museum, two theaters, numerous restaurants, bars and nightclubs and two floating pavilions. The most expensive building in the world was opened in 2010 and cost 4.6 billion euros !
