If I want to omit /du debut/ and say just /this building is from XXth century/:

ce batiment est du vingtieme siecle

correct?

A few accents are missing, but that's perfect.
You can also say Ce bâtiment date du vingtième siècle.

Merci Jojo. Pardonne-moi le manque des accents. C'est plus rapide d'ecrire des commentaires sans accents. Je suis toujours pressee.

Yes, but Duolingo just (6/3/2020) rejected "This building DATES FROM the twentieth century," which is just as correct as "is from."
