Ranking criteria and alternativesEdit
The non-profit international organization Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat (CTBUH), formed in 1969, decides which structure is "The World's Tallest Building" and sets the standards by which buildings are measured. It maintains a list of 50 tallest completed residential buildings in Dubai. As of 2013, the council ranked Princess Tower as the tallest, completed residential building in Dubai reaching a height of 414 metres (1,358 ft).
In 1996, in response to a dispute over whether the Petronas Towers or the Willis Tower (formerly the Sears Tower) was taller, the council listed and ranked buildings in four categories: the height of the structural or architectural top, the height of the highest occupied floor, the height to the top of the roof (removed as a category in November 2009),  and the height to the top of any part of the building. A tall building's "tallest" rank therefore depends on its spires and antennas as well as the height of its architectural top. For example, the Petronas Towers, with its spire, is ranked higher than the Willis Tower with its antennas, despite the Petronas Towers' lower roof.
This list ranks completed and topped out residential buildings in Dubai that stand at least 180 metres (591 ft) tall, based on standard height measurement. An equal sign (=) following a rank indicates the same height between two or more buildings.
