Sheikh Zayed Road
Updated: 4th June, 2023

Sheikh Zayed Road

The 2km stretch of road between Business Bay and the World Trade Centre roundabout, flanked by walls of skyscrapers. 
Sheikh Zayed Road
Sheikh Zayed Road is an area located within Dubai.

Sheikh Zayed Road is the main highway (E11) that runs through the UAE from Abu Dhabi in the south west to Ras Al Khaimah in the north east.

In Dubai real estate terms ‘Sheikh Zayed Road’ generally refers to the 2km stretch between Business Bay and the World Trade Centre roundabout, characterised by walls of skyscrapers on either side of the road. This is the centre of the business district and home to some of Dubai’s most valuable properties.

Notable buildings along Sheikh Zayed Road include Sama Tower, Park Place and the supertall Blue Tower.

If you like to live over the shop then Sheikh Zayed Road is for you. Most office towers contain residential apartments, many of which come fully furnished and serviced, and have gyms and roof top swimming pools.

In between the commercial buildings you’ll find a clutch of five star hotels including the The Fairmont Dubai, the Conrad, the H Hotel  and the Sheraton Four Points.
