Jumeirah Lake Towers
The area’s three-tower cluster design is set around four lakes, some with views over Dubai Marina or Emirates Hills golf courses. Landscaping and roads are now complete and the district offers waterfront living to its residents.
Its pedestrian-friendly walkways attract families and professionals looking for a calm and serene neighbourhood away from Dubai’s frenetic pace, yet still relatively close to the entertainment options of Dubai Marina.
People choose to live in JLT because it gives them the perfect combination of proximity to major landmarks, and the seclusion and greenery of a suburb. JLT is perfect for individuals commuting between Dubai and Abu Dhabi, and small families looking for a comfortable place to raise their children. Dog owners also love this pet-friendly area.
Many people choose to live in JLT if they also happen to be working there. JLT also offers a fitness-focused lifestyle; dozens of gyms and sports centres, in addition to athletic community clubs and events.
Residents usually favour buildings located in proximity of Metro stations. These include Green Lakes, Lake Terrace, Madina Tower, Al Sheraa Tower and Al Seef, and on the office side, Jumeirah Business Centre, Indigo Icon, Saba and Reef.
One-way traffic systems can mean a long drive around the perimeter of the neighborhood to get to and from certain clusters. Paid public parking can also be a small niggle.
Jumeirah Lakes Towers is very well connected by Metro and walkway to Dubai Marina and allows residents to easily reach the beach and The Walk at JBR.
In terms of entertainment, there is a live music band at Jazz at Pizza Express, or check out Irish pub McGettigans. The JLT Park is a residents' favourite, with kids' play areas and walking paths.
Hidden gems include Raju Omelette, Vietnamese Foodies, Art Lunch and El Mostacho. Don’t miss out taking family and friends to Mythos Kouzina & Grill for Greek food, Betawi for Indonesian food, Nola Eatery & Social House and Beit Maryam for Levantine flavours. The two Metro stations are a big plus. Taking a stroll around the lake is essential in the winter months.
