Jumeirah Beach Residence (JBR)
Jumeirah Beach Residence Overview
Situated between Dubai Marina and the sea JBR is claimed to be the biggest residential quarter in the world, with 35 towers able to house 15,000 people. As well as apartments the complex incorporates four hotels, shops restaurants and some commercial space.
The complex covers an area of two million square metres and runs the entire 1.7km length of The Walk, Dubai’s most popular beachside boulevard with its restaurants, cafes and smart shops. At podium level the apartments have their own walkways, gardens, shared pools, shops and convenience stores.
JBR’s towers, each up to 46 storeys high, are arranged in six distinct clusters: Shams, Amwaj, Rimal, Bahar, Sadaf and Murjan. Together the towers house 6,917 apartments ranging from 900 sq ft (84 m2) studios to 5,500 sq ft (510 m2) penthouses.
Although many of the previously uninterrupted sea views are being blocked by beachside developments, the JBR towers are so tall that most residents can see for miles, either out to sea or over the Dubai Marina.
There is no doubt that this place ranks high on the list of desirable residential addresses with spacious apartments of varying styles and affordable prices located right next to the sea and The Walk and a stone’s throw from the Marina.
When completed in 2010 JBR was the largest ever single-phased residential scheme.

Jumeirah Beach Residence Amenities
The Walk is a bustling street between JBR and the beach packed with over 300 boutiques, restaurants and coffee shops and is the most well-known public area in Dubai. Popular among Emiratis and expats alike, it is the largest al fresco dining area in Dubai.
The Walk is the place for strolling or simply sitting and watching the world go by. Street art and performances add to its attraction as does the constant parade of Ferraris, Lamborghinis and other prestigious marques strutting their stuff in the cooler evenings.
The Beach at JBR is a new 1 km long open mall between The Walk and the sand. There are four plazas connected by an esplanade with over 70 shops and restaurants interspersed with fountains, palm trees, a running track, a children’s water park, play areas and outdoor gym equipment. Its most prominent feature is an open-air cinema, the first of its kind in the country.
Bluewaters Island is a new man-made island located just off Jumeirah Beach. Its central feature is the Ain Dubai Ferris wheel (formerly known as the Dubai-I) which will be the largest in the world at 210 metres tall. Ain Dubai will be another iconic landmark for Dubai and will offer unobstructed views over the entire city.

Jumeirah Beach Residence Road Access
The main north-south highway running through Dubai passes right by the Marina, linking it to all parts of the Emirate and to Abu Dhabi which is about an hour’s drive away.
In August 2016 it was announced that there is going to be a new 120-metre long pedestrian bridge connecting Al Sufouh Road and Western Street in the JBR area, which is due to be completed by early 2017.
Jumeirah Beach Residence Public Transport
Like neighbouring Dubai Marina, you don’t have to own a car if you live at JBR. Two metro stations are each just a short walk across one of the bridges over the Marina from which The Mall of the Emirates is a 15 minute ride, Dubai Mall and Burj Khalifa 30 minutes, and the airport 55 minutes.
The new tram system connects with the metro stations and has helped to ease traffic congestion around JBR enabling local residents to get about swiftly and easily.
