I wish I had discovered this place much earlier. It’s very central, but also a lesser known area, which attracts certain type of people to the area. The fact that everything is in 5-10 min distance makes the taxi rides very affordable (i.e.Palm, Marina, JBR, JLT, MOE etc.). It’s best if you have a car of course. Plenty of guest parking available for free on the street or front of the building. The staff in the building are friendly and helpful. Neighbors are very friendly and easy to become friends. When it comes to the building itself, the quality of the material used in the building is very good and I love the high ground to ceiling windows. if something breaks, the building maintenance is very fast in fixing things or providing solutions. There is a room for improvement when it comes to the gym (equipment), but it’s enough for a quick training, as I usually enjoy going to my normal gym. My favorite is the pool during the day (note: water is cooled!)… and if you end up having no plans for New Year’s Eve, the view from the roof (pool) is great to watch the firework all over Dubai (Palm, Marina, JBR, Burj Al arab (partially) and even Burj Khalifa.
5 years pleasant living in this building
Family friendly in a quiet and accessible neighborhood. Building is very well maintained by the management. 4 supermarkets including Carefour market in the area. Excellent rooftop pool. The only challenge is the gym is simple on equipment.
Scandinavian style in Dubai
Love this building, as well as its neighbor J5. There is always a nice breeze around the buildings that makes you think you're not actually in Dubai. Quality and finishings are much better than majority of other buildings in the city as well. A drawback is the lack of places that you can walk to, but that's also pretty common outside of Jumeirah or downtown area. Overall, my favorite place I lived in Dubai.
