The 21st Century Tower is a 55-story skyscraper along the Sheikh Zayed Road in Dubai. When it was completed in 2003 it took the title of the world's tallest residential building, ultimately being surpassed by the Eureka Tower in Melbourne, Australia and the Q1 tower in Australia's Gold Coast. Architectural and engineering design was carried out by Atkins. PERI Dubai provided the formwork solution.

The tower contains seven elevators. During requests for an elevator, an intelligent elevator system automatically directs the closest elevator to the requested floor.

It is occupied by Cabin Crew and Flight Crew of Emirates Airline and is also home to the Consulate of Chile.
