Have you ever wondered how much it could cost to build these huge skyscrapers that stand in the biggest capitals of the world? For larger buildings, we are talking about amounts going well over the billion euros …
One might wonder why so much money and effort is invested in the construction of such gigantic buildings. The answer is simple: real estate has always been one of the main investment sectors for the wealthiest, but also one of the most profitable.
To make the following list reliable, we have adjusted the cost of construction of each building based on current inflation. Indeed, a billion spent 20 years ago is worth much more today, so you have to take it into account!
Without further ado, here is the list of the 15 most expensive buildings in the world:
15 – The Palazzo, USA – 1.9 billion dollar
First, we have the Palazzo of Las Vegas in the United States. This is one of the many casinos in Las Vegas, and as you will see, it is not the only one on our list. It was built in 2007 for $ 1.8 billion, the equivalent of 1.9 billion dollars today.
This 196-meter high building stands on 50 floors. Designed by “HKS Incorporated”, it currently belongs to “Las Vegas Sands Corporation”. The Palazzo is not only one of the most expensive buildings in the world, but it is also the largest hotel in the world according to the Guinness Book of Records.
One of its most popular attractions is the “Dal Toro” restaurant. Inside, an automobile museum displays exotic cars from luxury manufacturers. For the record, The Palazzo also appeared in the blockbuster “Ocean’s Thirteen”.
