Iconic towers provide stunning views of city at Jumeirah Lake Towers
The iconic Jumeirah Lakes Towers development comprises 78 modern apartment blocks, just off the arterial Sheikh Zayed Road. Every three towers are grouped into 26 separate alphabetised clusters, forming micro-communities. While the development was first constructed around four distinct lakes, one has been converted into a community park, making it perfect for professionals and smaller families. The development is served by two Dubai Metro stations – the Jumeirah Lakes Towers Metro Station and the DAMAC Metro Station – on the rail network’s red line. These two stations provide access across the motorway, meaning that the Dubai Marina Mall with its pavement cafes, restaurants and shops is walkable in cooler months. The contemporary towers have been designed by many different architects, providing the area with diversity and depth. Each touches the sky at between 35 and 65 storeys, aside from the centrepiece Almas Tower situated on its own central island, which peaks at 68. In fact, for a time it was the city’s tallest tower, until the Burj Khalifa was completed. Apartments for sale and apartments for rent range from studios, to four-bedroom properties.
JLT residents enjoy easy living, as all clusters feature shops, salons, banks, children’s nurseries, pharmacies, cafes and restaurants, based on the ground floor of most residential towers. Dedicated barrier parking and 24-hour security systems are an added bonus of living in this modern development. Its two Metro stations link with the Al Sufouh tram project, which traverses the Dubai Marina and beachfront districts; while road networks have also been designed to quickly link JLT residents with downtown via Sheikh Zayed Road East-bound and Abu Dhabi West-bound, making the development popular with commuters working in the UAE’s capital. Nearby schools are also served well by these networks. More retail options can be found at the nearby Ibn Battuta Mall, and its proximity to main roads makes Mall of the Emirates a close neighbour too.
Jogging and cycle tracks circle JLT’s lakes, and well-planned children’s play areas keep younger residents entertained. However, quiet evening strollers haven’t been forgotten and benches are dotted around the lakes’ manicured gardens for those who just want to sit and watch the world go by in peace. The lush green landscape has also be extended with the addition in 2014 of a 55,000 square metre park, complete with paved walkways, extended gardens, children’s play areas and a basketball court. Its size makes it the largest community park in the vicinity. Golfing enthusiasts, meanwhile, will find the famed Emirates Golf Course adjacent to JLT, comprising two 18-hole par 72 championship courses. Luxury destinations within the development include the Movenpick, Bonnington and Pullman hotels, complete with high-class restaurants, terrace bars and both spa and sports facilities.
