This recent infographic from CreditLoan.com showcases 10 of the worlds most expensive buildings, and provides insights into each one. It starts out on the lower end of things, with the new Mandalay Bay which was reported to cost $950 million. The 43 story luxury hotel is quite impressive inside and out, but it is not even close to being the most expensive building in Las Vegas. Next come two financial buildings in China, the Bank of China Tower and the Shanghai World Financial Center, which cost $1 billion and $1.2 billion respectively. Other buildings on the list include the new Yankee Stadium which cost $1.5 billion and the Burj Khalifa in Dubai which also cost $1.5 billion. When you make your way down the list you will also see Wembley Stadium in London ($1.5 billion) and the Bellagio in Las Vegas ($1.6 billion). At the bottom of the infographic is the most expensive building, which brings us back to Las Vegas and the newly constructed Wynn Casino, which cost $2.7 billion.

Overall this infographic is simple but informative, so it is easy to quickly read the information about each building. I am not sure if there were copyright issues, but one change that would have been nice would have been actual pictures of the buildings. This would add more color and variety to the infographic which has a very neutral color palette.
