Jumeirah Lakes Towers Area Guide

Jumeirah Lakes Towers is a mixed use waterfront district located behind Dubai Marina and is home to the Dubai Multi Commodities Centre Free Zone, the largest and fastest growing free zone in the UAE, and an increasingly important regional commodities hub for trade and enterprise. Plans are already afoot for the so called ‘Burj 2020’ the world’s tallest commercial tower to be built right here.

The 87 existing tower blocks at JLT, as the place is known, are built around three lakes and a park and comprise commercial and residential buildings as well as hotels, shops and leisure facilities. Apart from the centrepiece 66 storey Almas Tower all the buildings range from 35 to 45 floors in height and are arranged in 23 clusters.

With a growing population of over 35,000 residents JLT suits singles and young couples who have come to Dubai to work. There are no houses or villas, just high-rise apartment blocks rubbing shoulders with classy, glassy corporate towers. The main attraction is being able to live close by the work place, although JLT also appeals to those who work out of town but enjoy a high-rise, high octane city lifestyle.

Apartments here are more affordable than those closer to Jumeirah Beach or Dubai Marina, but the JLT lifestyle is hard to beat with the landscaped lakeside promenade providing an ideal location for leisurely walks, jogging or cycling and community events.

Jumeirah Lakes Towers Amenities

For many residents and office workers here the only real attraction is Bonnington’s Irish Pub, but for those who have to eat there are plenty of restaurants and cafes, including live jazz evenings at Pizza Express. All tower clusters have mini-marts or convenience stores at concourse level and along the waterfront where you will also find medical clinics, gyms, health clubs and spas, and beauty parlours.

For proper shopping there are three malls, each the size of a small town, within ten minutes driving.

There are two schools just 12 minutes away, and four children’s playgrounds within JLT as well as shared pools for resident families and singles alike.

Jumeirah Lakes Towers Travel Guide

JLT is well located close to the main highway running through Dubai and on to Abu Dhabi, but is also just ten minutes walk away from Jumeirah Beach and The Walk with its shops and continental cafe culture. Abu Dhabi is about an hour’s drive from JLT.

Public Transport Links to Jumeirah Lakes Towers

For those travelling within Dubai there are two handy metro stations, Jumeirah Lakes Towers Station and Dubai Marina Station. Dubai Airport is a 50 minute ride on a state of the art driverless train. For the hyper lazy a golf buggy taxi will transport you from the metro station to your building for five dirhams.

"Great Place"

Reviewed

Positives:   Walking, peacefulness, proximity to metro.

Negatives:   Unfinished buildings, SZR traffic noise.

I moved into Goldcrest Views with my wife from a recommendation from a friend about the JLT. We were not disappointed. The JLT is a nice area to live and the lake which Goldcrest Views is located on was nice, mostly completed, and peaceful. The people who work in the building are friendly and responsive. The pool is nice on top of the roof. The gym is not terribly fancy or efficient for those who are gym buffs but if you want to get a run in on the treadmill, then all is good. The thing my wife and I love about the area is the ability to walk in Dubai without fearing for your life from motor vehicles. We enjoy the park on the neighboring lake and the ability to walk to the marina and JBR. It's truly been a pleasure living here. Some of the cons that exist are that there are a lot of unfinished buildings around the lakes in general that won't get finished and are true eyesores. The hum of SZR traffic is forever in the background noise.

"Spacious Apartment But Terrible Maintenance Problems"

Reviewed

Positives:   Layout and space.

Negatives:   Maintenance.

The apartment looks amazing and is probably the largest in JLT. The layout and view is great. But there is constant water leakage issues in ac and wall which leads to severe mold build up destroying your clothes and shoes. There is no restriction on number of pets so some apartments have 4 to 5 pets to the extent that the building is like an animal farm with dogs barking all day and night and the pet owners don't care. Noise from Sheikh Zayed Road is heard in the rooms resulting in poor sleep. It's a pity such a beautiful apartment is destroyed through poor maintenance and lax building rules. Bathroom fittings aren't great either, keeps breaking.

"Select Your Landlord Carefully"

Reviewed

Positives:   Spacious, nearby park area, nearby shops, restaurants and facilities. Near metro if you use.

Negatives:   For my apartment, the lack of maintenance, unfinished building in cluster, and the landlord.

The MAG214 apartments, assuming you have JLT/Springs view (not view of the unfinished building in the cluster) are spacious and great. But they are old for Dubai, so select your landlord carefully. I have personally ended up with an apartment where the landlord has chosen the quick route with repairs and maintenance, as a result, I am almost bi-weekly ending up doing smaller repairs and maintenance myself (spotlights, cupboards etc). So don't sign a contract with a "small maintenance fee". I've had a long standing battle with landlord/property management company, to get aircon units maintained. I had professionals in to look at them, and their view was, they've never been maintained or cleaned and are about to fall apart. The bathrooms in the building sadly have ugly tiling, weird color schemes, but otherwise fine. However, the master bedroom has a shower for children, most adult could not fit into it. So I've chosen to use second bedroom as master. Many landlords have sold their car park, and its not included in the lease. Worth also checking before you sign a contract. I spent months fighting to keep the car park which came with the flat, as others kept taking it (presumably because when I moved in, it had been free for a while). Nearby park and running track (1.2km/1 mile) is very nice. The gym is a laugh, it's in a terrible state and neither myself, nor guests visiting have wanted to use it. Pool area is quite nice, with great views and although small its a well kept and cosy little pool area. Security are really friendly and helpful, so are the building staff generally. The building itself is kept in fairly good state generally. However, the cluster and outside area is in a poor state, with plastic bollards to prevent long term parking in short term stay etc. Looks horrible.

"Not Recommended"

Reviewed

Positives:   SZR and Marina view.

Negatives:   Dedicated parking.

I stayed in Madina Tower from Oct'15 to Oct'16. I liked the SZR and Marina view from living room and bedroom, this is possibly the only good thing... 1- Access to and from JLT is not the best, 15 mins gets added to your trip every time you leave home. Traffic towards the evening (between 4:30-5:30pm). 2- Madina Tower is approx. 12 mins walk to Metro which is fine except during summer. 3- Building maintenance is very poor especially plumbing, lots of water leakage from the roof and the walls, there is always some leak somewhere in the building. 4- Dedicated parking slots are taken by others, security doesn't care despite of multiple complaints, they only put a notice on the cars to be removed but owners don't care much about the notice as security cannot do anything. I even called police but they said it should be handled by building security. This is by far the most annoying thing especially when come from office to find some car using my spot. 5- I had some ants issue in my apartment, not sure if it is all the building or only me. 6- I had very noisy neighbors. 7- The gym is not very well equipped but all devices work fine. 8- Swimming pool is fine but it is covered. I don't recommend JLT in general unless you plan to live, work and socialize within JLT.

"Great Value For Money"

Reviewed

Positives:   Location, view & maintenance.

Negatives:   The a/c compressor unit on GF could be a bit too loud for lower floors.

The developer's core biz is property leasing, this is among the few (if not only) property sold to private owners i.e. they are very well verse in sourcing decent maintenance which is clearly reflected in Al Waleed Paradise. I say the building is pretty well maintain for AED11psf per annum. This is among the few buildings with its own a/c system i.e. not subjected to extortion of chilled water bill from utilities. Metro station 4mins walking distance while the only park in JLT is right downstairs. Flat with park view is highly recommended, it's very quiet compare to SZR view and I love waking up every morning with a luscious green view.

"JLT Is The Perfect Location For Those Looking For Good Views And Great Apartments Along With Facilities "

Reviewed

Positives:   Restaurants,supermarkets,close proximity to the metro, cabs easily available, beauty salons after every 200 meters,.

Negatives:   Nothing worst yet.

JLT is a beautiful locality with supermarkets, beauty salons, restaurants and cafes and much more. This place is divided into clusters and each cluster has two to three residential towers with 1BHK, 2BHK, 3BHK and even 4BHK apartments along with facilities like gyms, swimming pool and reading areas in most buildings. Alongside this, the lobby of most residential apartments are as good as hotel lobbies and the security is tight, so its safe to live here. So safe, that most of the times we don't even lock our houses. Every apartment has a great view. There are also many hotels and service apartments around the corner, so if you have family or friends visiting, you can conventionally book their stay near your house, without much trouble so they stay close to you while basking in the glory of view and premium facilities. I have lived here for a year, and I am determined to stay in this area for as long as am in Dubai. They have parks, jogging and walking area around the lake, so not only does this location give you a great view but also the convenience of connecting with nature.

"Young Professional Living In JLT"

Reviewed

Positives:   Location.

Negatives:   Not modern enough.

I lived in many different areas of Dubai before moving to JLT: Business Bay, Dubai Marina and JBR. In all honesty, if you are looking for value for money, walking distance to the metro, close to the buzz but far enough away to enjoy the peace and an area to exercise or walk your dog, you have a winner. In addition, three new restaurants opened late last year/early this year and you are spoilt for choice on where to grab a coffee and cake :) Granted the building is not the most modern however it is safe, secure and there is a maintenance team available should you require any immediate assistance. The pool has views of the marina skyline, lovely for sunset, with Burj Al Arab in the distance and the gym is not bad. Small? Yes but offering 6 cardio machines and some free weights, what more do you expect for a free gym?!

Positives:   There is nothing best.

Negatives:   Maintenance.

I have spent 3 years; not because I enjoyed building but both my laziness and my budget. Pros: - There is carrefour and green field (This is nothing with the building itself.

There is only one available slot in kitchen, which we installed washing machine. - Don't be surprised if you see muddy water coming out of the bathroom tabs. - Frequent leakages from pipes in bathroom. - Awful swimming pool - You have to drive all over JLT to exit SZR.

Apartment looked nice and cosy at first, it soon turned out it was a big bug. AC gave us the hardest time: its terrible system, awful noise and water leakages made sleeping almost impossible.

"One Of The Best Buildings And Locations"

Reviewed

Positives:   Cleanliness of O2 Residences and JLT community in general.

Negatives:   No additional exit once on the loop.

We chose this building because of the initial impression of cleanliness and the proximity to the park, basketball, kids play area. Having lived here for a year, over summer and winter my view is that JLT is the best Dubai area to live in - if you are an "Apartment" person. Lots of walking areas, clean and pet friendly. We were wary of traffic congestion getting in and out of Cluster O - and for sure the need to go all the way around the loop to get to SZR was an initial concern, but the one direction loop mean traffic is always flowing, so no traffic jams. But I do think they can do something to add an exit along the loop. With regard to O2 Residence, it is clean, secure, well maintained (except maybe the window cleaning which could be more frequent), good quality and peaceful. A WestZone supermarket is downstairs - and they deliver anything - which can make one lazy and addicted to the convenience. JLT in general is a family friendly suburb with ample walking areas.

"The Best In Dubai"

Reviewed

Positives:   Wide space, peace in the air, excellent building and cluster, garden next to the building, kids play area just downstairs, look and feel of the apartment, view, security, gym, rooftop pool, wide roads, retail shops, restaurants, residential feel, location, high class community!

Negatives:   Nothing honestly!

I being the owner of a 2-bed apartment in Saba 3 am extremely happy with the investment. I own this since 2012 and rented it out thrice - all these times found the tenants immediately. JLT area in general and Saba Towers in particular are hot-sell. And I feel that this is true "value for money" because similar quality built-up and planned areas like Dubai Marina, Palm, JBR and Down Town will cost you much more for the same size. So if you are looking for quality infrastructure with wide road networks, retail shops, plenty of restaurants, lakes, gardens, peace in the air and perfect neighborhood of class-A+ I would strongly suggest JLT. Many of the viewers during the renting out exercise told me that they had seen dozens of apartments elsewhere but this is the one they would like to take immediately because of it's neatness, size, finish, security, surrounding, views, quality and proximity! The road network has improved recently with addition of lanes, bridges and backside roads - so access-in and out to JLT is the best in town now. The lake portion just behind the Saba Towers has been converted into well planned garden and basketball court adding more value and usefulness to the neighborhood. Another plus which makes JLT better for living is that the outsider tourists don't really pop up here (they have Dubai Marina for that), and the thing which makes Saba Towers stand out is that in this cluster there is no office building so the environment is fully residential and guest parking spaces are mostly available.

"Premium Building- You Get What You Pay For"

Positives:   Good quality and quiet large apartment.

Negatives:   Rent is more expensive than other JLT towers.

The good: Madina tower is known to be one of the best buildings in JLT. The apartments are all extremely spacious. My one bedroom is larger than most one bedrooms in Dubai and my kitchen is also very spacious. The kitchen counter tops and the marble tilings in the bathrooms give the apartment a premium finish. The gym and the swimming pool areas are always kept clean by the building staff and the security staff are very nice. I have lived in other expensive towers in Marina and the maintenance team is extremely effective. I had an issue with my water heater and it had to be replaced. The maintenance team booked a time slot and sent someone from their technical team the next day.The apartment is also much larger and calmer than the marina apartment that I used to live in. The view is also very nice, it overlooks the new JLT park and the Jumeirah Islands. There is a park a running track and a basketball court downstairs which is great. The bad: The rent is more expensive than smaller units in JLT but then again, you get a larger apartment and higher quality of living for not that much of a difference/month.

"Worst Tower I Have Ever Lived In, Do Not Waste Your Money!!"

Reviewed

Positives:   Layout and size of the apartment.

Negatives:   Building is dirty, damp and has cockroaches.

My husband and I have been living in this tower for over a year now and we can't wait to move out. Firstly to start with the positives, the apartments are very large in size and have a well thought out layout. The gym is well equipped and clean and the pool area is shaded but clean and functional with a lot of sunbeds available and a jacuzzi. There is a park outside which is great for running/walking in the evenings and ample restaurants, supermarkets and delivery places near by. Now for the negatives, the apartments all suffer from damp, the communal hall ways etc have paint peeling off the ceilings (which is regularly painted over to mask the problem) the building maintenance are absolutely useless, if you call them with a problem they will either not bother to call you back or they will take 3 weeks plus to come and even take a look. There are no rubbish shoots in the building only wheely bins in the rubbish room, this along with the dampness and leaking AC units has caused a massive infestation of cockroaches and ants, even if you have your flat fumegated they will find there way back in as they are everywhere in the building. The drainage pipes are either blocked (the drains on the balcony do not drain at all and maintenances answer to this is that the whole system has been blocked with sand and there is nothing they can do about it) or suffer from drain flies, I have brought drain cleaner almost every other week to pour down the bathroom / kitchen drains but this does not seem to deter them for more than a few days as I think the problem is with the whole drainage system in the building. The walls here are extremely thin so you can hear everything your neighbours are doing, and the apartments are very close together which means if you open your front door your looking directly at your neighbours front door. Overall this is one of the worst places we have ever stayed in and I would not recommend this tower to anyone who wants a decent standard of living.

Positives:   Location, Security, Quiet, Less traffic.

Thumbs up to MAG 214 for its location. Walking distance to DAMAC metro station as well as to so many good eateries. Perfect location for families with kids too as there is a huge garden behind with lots of events happening every week. A 1 km soft jogging track, work out facilities, basket ball court available as well. Building security and pool facility is worth mentioning. Lots of departmental stores nearby. A little old and less maintained compared to a few towers nearby. Unlike marina JLT is not very crowded as well so makes it perfect as a residential place decent traffic during peak hours. Overall a good place for a small family or couples to stay.

"Very Satisfied"

Reviewed

Positives:   Location,Spacious house.

Negatives:   Mold on bathroom walls.

We are going to complete almost 2 years here in Palladium. This has been our first home in Dubai, and Palladium Tower would be our first preference if we have to search for a new accommodation, if need arises, in the future. Very near to the Metro, ample walking/cycling/running space below the building that is also very clean, good security and quick response for maintenance issues, spacious home, restaurants of various cuisines, neatly maintained pool and the list goes on. We would definitely recommend Palladium Tower for new tenants.

"GoldCrest Views 1"

Reviewed

Positives:   Pool.

Negatives:   Small size of apt.

Very nice building. Location is great, close enough to the metro to walk but far enough for SZ road to avoid the noise. Walking distance to Carrefour across the road. Public areas are always clean and quiet and security is always friendly and helpful. Plenty of ammenities downstairs. Pool is very nice, one of the best in JLT. Downside is the size of the apt, little on the small side. Finishing is good enough though.

"Beautiful JLT"

Reviewed

Positives:   My balcony view and lakes.

Negatives:   Expensive and less parking pace.

I have been living in JLT for 3 years now.. and loved every day here. If you stay in top most floor then u'll get an amazing view of szr and marina and beach (depends which side is your balcony view). Now its bit more expensive so will be moving out soon.

"Fantastic Tower In JLT"

Reviewed

Positives:   The rooftop pool.

Negatives:   Slight of Hum of traffic from the bedroom but you get used to it.

We just living here, it has great facilities in the building. Fabulous gym, root top pool jacuzzi, pool and table tennis facilities too. Everything is within walking distance, Carrefour, medical centre, coffee shops, restaurants, beauty salon with easy access to metro (10 minute walk). It is a lovely community too. I would highly recommend it.

"Feels Cozy And Serene In Saba Tower 2"

Reviewed

Positives:   The view, the facilities.

Negatives:   Nothing.

It was nerve wrecking the minute I landed in Dubai, I had no idea how to get around or understood the overall trips down to DEWA or EMPOWER etl al. I also looked at 100 studios and flats, all with ridiculous tariffs and rent plans. I was lucky to have located a cute little studio in Saba Towers 2, my studio even though is small has a New York 'penthouse' vibe to it. And my view from the 27th floor is incredible. The security are quite friendly and always asking if you need a helping hand. And the noise levels are nonexistent, you are in for a lovely treat during bedtime after a 12-hour shift at work. As a newcomer to Dubai and hearing all the difficult tales and woes of procuring a flat, I am proud to say that I found the ideal spot in JLT.

"Good Building"

Reviewed

Positives:   Amenities, pool area, gym and lake view.

Negatives:   Noise late at night from the carpark and from Bonnington.

Been living here for 6 months. The staff are really helpful and friendly and if you report anything they do look into it. The management are always doing something to the building, cleaning, maintenance, decorating so the building appears well maintained. The noise from the community is a downside but if you get a lake view it's lovely. We have a lake view and floor to ceiling windows with 2 balconies and the apartment is very light and airy. The kitchen isn't the biggest but does it's job well. All in all we feel this is a good apartment building with one of the better pool areas and sized gyms that we saw when viewing apartments. The walk to the Metro is ok but in the hotter months can seem a step out however there are always taxi's available in the cluster. The amenities nearby are varied and many with lots of variety of eateries and supermarkets in walking distance.

"One Of The Best Places To Live In "

Reviewed

Positives:   Public transport.

Negatives:   The entrance to the area although not a deal killer.

This area is one of the best to live in as it satisfies the requirements of pretty much all age groups. The noise level is pretty ok, not loud and the view from the house is also good. A very beautiful area to go for a walk as well and the security is pretty tight as well so no worries. Public transportation is a very strong factor of this area. A metro station right outside the building making traveling much easier in the case of traffic on the highway. The only bad thing that I was able to figure out was the entrance to the city. It is a bit confusing at first, takes a little getting used but definitely not a factor to stop you from buying a house here. Overall a very awesome place to live in.

"Beware"

Reviewed

Positives:   Location.

Negatives:   Terrible apartment.

A/C in the apartments is nothing more than a warm breeze and no maintenance has been carried out, toilet needs to be assisted to flush with a plunger! Extremely old furniture in the furnished places. Good location, close to metro and local amenities. You wouldn't want to bring guests though!
