The 10 Best Apartments with a Burj Khalifa View

Written by Arpan Ghosh

The world’s tallest tower, the most iconic building in Dubai and a true marvel of architecture - there are many ways one can describe the Burj Khalifa. However, words don’t quite do this spectacular tower true justice, it’s something that you really need to see for yourself. And what better way to see it than from one of these excellent apartments in Downtown Dubai? These are the 10 best residences that give you a view of the incredible Burj Khalifa.

Tajer Residence

Located on the charmingly named Old Town Island, Tajer Residence is part of a low-rise residential cluster modeled after traditional homes of the UAE. While the architecture has a historic look to it, the interiors are beautifully modern. Old Town Island sits directly opposite the Burj Khalifa on the Burj Lake, so you get a waterfront view to go with the tower.


The Address Fountain Views

The name says it all on this one - this three-tower complex allows you to enjoy views over the magnificent Dubai Fountains, which turn every evening into a celebration in Downtown Dubai. Fountain Views is a property under the banner of The Address Hotels, so you also have access to a five-star quality of life.

The Address Sky View

Another Address property, Sky View is located in what is considered to be the gateway to Downtown. The aesthetic is modern and refined, with a view that takes in the entirety of the skyline. If you really want to enjoy that view to its fullest, however, then you should head up to the Sky Deck, which spans the top of the twin-tower development and gives you a full panorama of the city.

Vida Residences Downtown

Conveniently located along the famous Mohammed Bin Rashid Boulevard, Vida Downtown not only enjoys some of the best views in the city but also has access to some of the very best lifestyle attractions. The Boulevard is a haven of gourmet dining, with famous restaurants such as La Serre, Ting Irie and Mezza House located a short walk away.

Burj Vista

The two gleaming towers of Burj Vista stand directly opposite the Burj Khalifa and were designed as an architectural homage to their globally acclaimed neighbour. If you want to enjoy some of the most striking views of the tallest tower in the world up close, then this is the place to live.

The Address The Boulevard

Located across the street from the expansive Dubai Mall, The Address Boulevard gives you instant access to one of the world’s finest shopping destinations courtesy of an air-conditioned walkway. It is also ideally positioned to give you a view that spans the heart of Downtown on one side and views over the central business district on the other.

The Residences

Also known as the Burj Residences, this high-rise complex is made up of nine towers clustered around the beautiful Burj Lake, where the Dubai Fountain show is held every evening. You are also conveniently within walking distance of the beautiful Burj Park, set on a small island on the lake and a perfect spot to enjoy a ground-level view of the Burj Khalifa.

South Ridge

One of the apartment complexes located outside the main sphere of Downtown Dubai, South Ridge is perfect if you don’t want to be right in the middle of the action. It is also a perfect option for enjoying a panoramic Downtown view from your terrace, or from the lovely park located just outside the complex.

Boulevard Crescent

Set on the perimeter of the Downtown area, Boulevard Crescent forms a part of the highly prestigious Opera District. Like Vida Downtown, it is located along Mohammed Bin Rashid Boulevard. While you can certainly enjoy a lovely view from your windows or your terrace, the pool deck on the podium level is where you really get the best shots for your Instagram feed.


While this list is focused on residences in Downtown Dubai, we had to include one notable outlier. Volante is located in the neighbouring Business Bay district and rises just above the magnificent Dubai Canal. It is the perfect option if you want a view of the Burj Khalifa that also includes a stunning waterfront panorama.
