  • 21st Century Tower is a 55-storey residential building in Sheikh Zayed Road, Dubai.
  • Construction began in 2001 and was completed by 2003.
  • The project was designed by WS Atkins & Partners.
  • From 21st Century Tower it takes roughly 10 minutes to drive to Dubai Mall, 23 minutes to Palm Jumeirah, 21 minutes to Burj Al Arab and 26 minutes to The Walk JBR.
  • Dubai International Airport (DXB) is roughly 15 minutes' drive and the new Al Maktoum International Airport is roughly 48 minutes' drive. All durations are calculated by Google Maps and assume the fastest route in typical traffic conditions.
  • 21st Century Tower was the tallest all-residential building in the world from 2003-2005, surpassing Trump World Tower.

  • The building was entirely pre-leased to Emirates Airlines to house its flight attendants - a big contrast to the previous tallest residential tower, where the world's richest man owned a unit.

  • The Al Rastamani logo of three overlapping doves in flight is affixed to the turret which abuts the spire.

  • The tower has a footprint of 1,350 m², and includes a rooftop swimming pool and gymnasium. A nine-storey car park adjoins the main tower.

bad management, cockroach infested property
Safe building and location
Cockroaches and management company
The management company is honestly bad. They do not return phone calls and are not interested in helping the tenants. Lived there for 6 years because it is close to my job, and by law I should get fresh paint after three years, but they never did it. more… They will try to take your deposit. I moved out 1 month ago and until now they did not return my deposit. Now they are ignoring my emails. Too bad that I had to tolerate the cockroaches all over the building for 6 years. So glad I am finally out of there.Show less
