Jumeirah Beach Residence (JBR)
Updated: 3rd October, 2023

Jumeirah Beach Residence

The biggest residential quarter in the world - 35 towers able to house 15,000 people on a 1.7km stretch between Dubai Marina and the sea.
Jumeirah Beach Residence
Jumeirah Beach Residence is an area located within Dubai Marina, Dubai.
The developer
The project was developed by Dubai Properties Group.
Also known as
The architect
The architectural consultant was Arif & Bintoak and the architectural consultant was Benoy.

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 900sq ft (84m2) studios to 5,500sq ft (510m2) 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.

Transport & Access

Commute times by car

From Jumeirah Beach Residence it takes roughly 21 minutes to drive to Dubai Mall, 13 minutes to Palm Jumeirah, 19 minutes to Burj Al Arab and 1 minutes to The Walk JBR.*

Airport proximity

Dubai International Airport (DXB) is roughly 30 minutes' drive and the new Al Maktoum International Airport is roughly 33 minutes' drive.*

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 2020 a new 120-metre long pedestrian bridge connecting King Salman Bin Abdulaziz Al Saud Street and Al Gharbi Street in the JBR area was completed.

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.

A tram system connects with the metro stations and has helped to ease traffic congestion around JBR enabling local residents to get about (a bit) more swiftly and easily.

* Drive times are calculated by Google Maps and assume fastest route in typical traffic conditions.


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 1km-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.

Bluewaters Island, the new man-made island, is located just off Jumeirah Beach. Its central feature is the Ain Dubai Ferris wheel (formerly known as the Dubai-I) which is the largest in the world at 210 metres tall. Ain Dubai is another iconic landmark for Dubai and offers unobstructed views over the entire city.

Construction History

The construction was extremely fast tracked and achieved completion on schedule 40 months after works began. More than 22,000 people from a number of different countries worked on the construction at its peak.

Extensive infrastructure works included a landmark bridge and a district cooling system which uses a network of underground pipes to deliver cool air and water to all the development’s buildings from a single, central source.

Dubai Properties was the developer and the project manager was Mace.
