Hello everybody! 🙂
Yesterday I had been waiting impatiently to receive the accommodation info on the selected candidate portal, but it didn’t want to come. I was out during the night and when I checked the Facebook group of the 20 November joiners around 1 am, I saw that all the other people had shared what they got. I quickly checked mine and I couldn’t believe my eyes!
I got the bestest available accommodation ever! All the crew would like to live in 21st Century Tower which is on Sheikh Zayed road, in the middle of Dubai, very close to the downtown, the Burj Kalifa, the Jumeira beach and everything! I have always dreamed about getting something like this one (honestly I even had a positive divination) and it became reality :).
Some info from Wikipedia:
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. 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.
Some extra info:
- It is very close to Emirates Towers, where crew get free entry to an amazing gym, sauna and pool
- The apartments are not that big
- It is only a metro station away from Dubai Mall
- The airport is less than 20 minutes away by the crew bus
I am gonna live on the 4th floor and I know it’s sound ridiculous, but I wish I had at least the 30th floor! Living in a huge tower but don’t enjoy the view seems to be unfair :). But I guess I’m gonna survive, I don’t wanna be unsatisfied.
Another thing; the building is old in comparison with the other crew’s accommodations, so the furniture and everything will probably be old. I have also read somewhere, that the windows are not opening. They also say the gym and the pool is not that big, but other great facilities will be just few minutes away, so this is also something I will be able to handle :).
I hope my flat mates and neighbors will be nice and kind, I can’t wait to meet them! 🙂
