Dubai’s most coveted waterfront destination for work and play, Jumeirah Lake Towers (JLT). It’s centered around three lakes while a fourth, lake Zafeer, has been turned into a big, beautiful park that has transformed the area and given several clusters lovely views of an open and green space.
Part of the Emirates Living district, Jumeirah Lake Towers offers scenic water views, skyscrapers which are a vibrant mix of offices, residences and retail and idyllic spots. Set as a three-tower cluster design around four lakes, JLT is strategically located near Interchange 5 on Sheikh Zayed Road. A model development for urban residential living, JLT attracts working professionals, many of whom commute to Dubai Media City or Dubai Internet City and can reach these areas within minutes via the tram and metro lines.
There’s a real sense of community here for families and single people alike. Residents walk and jog around the lakes; there are play areas and basketball courts in the park; the Metro is easy to get to; and there is a range of amenities in each cluster of buildings, from restaurants, shops and supermarkets to beauty parlors and drycleaners. This is quite different to many other areas in Dubai.
This serene waterfront community’s a haven replete with lush greenery, scenic views of the water and idyllic spots for quiet reflection. An instant favorite of long-time Dubai residents and newcomers alike, JLT is an upscale, heart-of-Dubai residential experience like no other. With views over Dubai Marina, lakes and the Emirates Hills’ golf courses, JLT offers enjoyable waterfront living.
With the construction of the roads now complete, the area is easy to drive around. Sheikh Zayed Road and First Al Khalil Street provide easy access points and each cluster is clearly marked, with undercover parking on one side or a turning circle at the top. There are two Metro stations, Jumeirah Lake Towers and Dubai Marina Metro, as well as a stop on the tram route, and taxis are never far away.
The area is suitable for everyone, from families to single people and couples. The park, children’s play areas and day-care facilities make it a convenient option for families, and children can also cycle around the lakes very safely. Meanwhile, many restaurants have a thriving evening social scene making the area popular with young couples and single expats.
