District, Dubai
Sheikh Zayed Road Key Information
Location type

Sheikh Zayed Road Overview

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.

Sheikh Zayed Road Amenities

The main attraction here is living or working amongst some of the glitziest buildings in Dubai, yet being only a couple of kilometres from old Jumeirah in one direction, and Downtown and Dubai Mall in the other.

Sheikh Zayed Road Road Access

The journey time by road to the Dubai Mall or Downtown Dubai is 12 minutes, to the Mall of the Emirates 17, to Dubai Marina 25, to the International Airport 20, and to Abu Dhabi 1hour 30.

Sheikh Zayed Road Public Transport

If you live here you’ll probably have someone call you a taxi or deliver your car to the front door when you want to get out and about. But you could take the train if you fancy the exercise. The metro runs alongside Sheikh Zayed Road with three stations to choose from, Financial Centre, Emirates Towers and World Trade Centre.

By metro from World Trade Centre station it’ll take 35 minutes to Dubai Marina or 20 to Dubai International Airport.

Hassle-free and strategic location
Strategically located
Nothing except on the higher side of the rent
This place is just perfect. From hotels, restaurants and various shops you can find it. The greatest of all is the Metro which is just walking distance away. Although I am driving my own car parking is not a problem and if I am lazy to drive I can just more… jump on the train to go to work which is 2 stations away only at the Trade Center and very easy to go at different malls around Dubai during spare time. After a long day at work and wanted to stay fit, I can do running or walking around the area with Burj Khalifa as my backdrop. What else could I ask for?Show less

Comfortable to live
Nothing, except for the price
Living in my flat located in Sheikh Zayed Road is what I loved most, accessible to all places, like hotels, restaurants, malls and importantly walking distance to my work in DIFC. I can leave peacefully. The price is quite high compared to others but it is very comfortable.

The rooms are big and spacious and the second best thing about my place is that the metro is very close from my house.
There is a problem of pest control in our kitchen which is the worst thing of our flat.
I shifted from Bur Dubai to this place here on SZR and it is a way better place to live at. Other than the constant moving cars and metro noises we hear from the road there are hardly any problems we face. There is even a wonderful Lebanese restaurant being more… built on our building. The neighbors are friendly, the Dubai Mall is just one metro station away, cafes are located all around the area and the metro station is a 5 minutes walk away. Show less
