Dubai, Jan 08 (Agencies): China plans to build a USD 1.3 billion luxury hotel modelled on the world's tallest tower, Dubai's Burj Khalifa.

Graphics and planning of the 'seven-star' hotel has already been completed and it will be situated at the end of Chang An avenue, which runs across the Chinese capital's Tiananmen Square, according to media reports.

Wang Hongzhong, chief official of the Mentougou district, where the project is based, said that it had been designed as a ‘streamlined building like the Khalifa Tower in Dubai’ and Saudi Arabia will help China build the tower.

At 828 metres, Burj Khalifa is the tallest building in the world and was opened in Dubai in January last year. It anchors the 500-acre Downtown Dubai master-planned community developed by Dubai's master-developer Emaar Properties.

Burj Khalifa was built at a cost of around USD 1.5 billion.
