Jumeirah Village Circle Overview

Jumeirah Village Circle is a new development situated alongside Sheikh Zayed Road, the main highway running the length of Dubai. The housing here consists of large villas, town houses and apartments.

Whilst you can find fully occupied properties here, there is also a lot of construction activity going on.

At the end of 2016 an estimated 25,000 people were living in JVC and the population was predicted to rise to 300,000 when the 560-hectare community is fully complete.  

33 landscaped parks totalling an area of four million sq ft had all been completed.

The Circle Mall, with 235 shops, an anchor supermarket, two department stores, a multi-screen cinema, a health clinic, cafés, restaurants and a food court, is under construction. It missed its target opening date of 2017 and was still under construction in 2019.

More than a thousand buildings, villas and townhouses in JVC were either complete or under construction, and another 183 residential, commercial and hospitality buildings were in the design stage. 

The existing villas in Jumeirah Village Circle are spacious with large rooms, balconies and up to five bedrooms. For those looking for smaller properties but with large gardens neighbouring Jumeirah Village Triangle caters for couples and small families. For those looking to buy in a good location before prices rise, JVC may well fit the bill.

Jumeirah Village Circle Amenities

The main attraction here is the opportunity to invest in a property without having to spend a small fortune. Despite the lack of local shops and other amenities, residents can easily get to neighbouring, established communities where these things are plentiful, in Motor City, The Springs and The Meadows. So while green spaces and retail excitement do not yet feature in JVC, at least the place is well located.

A Choitrams supermarket opened in March 2016 at Manhattan Towers towards the north of JVC.

Nakheel is creating a new community club on top of The Circle Mall by adding a pool, sports and restaurant complex to the roof. The JVC Club will include a 300-seater restaurant, a swimming pool and sundeck, two tennis courts, a gymnasium and landscaped gardens, all with views across the main community park. The Club is due to open in 2018.

In January 2017 Nakheel announced a series of new, linked cycle routes to be created around its communities in Dubai, including a 27km track around Jumeirah Village Circle. Work is expected to be finished in 2019.

Road Access

Living at the junction of the Sheikh Zayed highway and Al Khail Road more or less anywhere in Dubai is within easy reach provided you have a car; 30 minutes to the airport, 20 minutes to Dubai Mall, 15 minutes to Dubai Marina or Palm Jumeirah, and one hour twenty to Abu Dhabi.

Three new entry-exit points connecting Dubai’s Jumeirah Village Circle with Hessa Street opened on 12 October 2016 following the completion of an Dh18.5 million roads improvement scheme by master developer Nakheel.

The work means easier access, shorter journey times and improved traffic flow at JVC, one of Dubai’s largest and fastest-growing communities.

Public Transport

Public transport to Jumeirah Village Circle is notoriously lacking and generally limited to taxi services. A new feeder bus J01 which runs every 25 minutes to Mall of the Emirates is a big improvement and makes use of the former 'ghost' bus stops that had been taunting residents without cars for years.

The closest metro station is Mall of the Emirates and there is talk of a tram system in the future according to the developer.

Best quality building in JVC
Quality of the building and spacious apartment
None
Apartment is very spacious with good layout, big balcony and excellent finishing, with modern bathrooms. The best thing is that isolation is very good and I barely use AC even during the summer. Also I love this building because it has the best facilities, big and well equipped gym and huge more… swimming pool. Location of the building is also the best, it is in the Center of JVC, which is very quiet, in the building we have tailor shop, laundry shop, gents saloon, West Zone supermarket and soon will be opening ladies saloon and coffee shop, and 350 meters from the building there is a nursery.

Definitely not recommended
Layout
Everything
Moved into this building as it was brand new with good spacious layout. Plus what could go wrong in a brand new building? It took only 2 weeks to learn the answers to that question. Everything can go wrong! In a month, all tenants moved in and then the fun started. more… Noise level is unbelievable. Residents are at reception arguing, filing cases against building. It is almost unreal that you can hear all internal and external discussions in your living room including all children screams and dog barkings. There are many other issues with air conditions, overall hygiene and smell in hallways. Residents smoking in the elevator all the way into their flats. Unreal! Construction started behind the building so that will also cause additional noise. The noise, smell and all are enough for not living here. Another additional bonus is fire alarm going on 1-3 times a week. Show less

Noise, security and management
Very cheap and brand new building however the noise level is very high. Every flat hears each other and daily arguments, people waking up each other. You can hear music, balcony talks and everything. Apartment full of pet owners

Fortunato 1 Bed
Buliding Facilites
AC, Water pressure and construction
When we first viewed the apt a year ago we fell in love with the overall look and feel of the apt, the story space in the kitchen and living, the finishing and the facilities in the building. A few months after moving in though we realized there were a more… few problems such as the AC - it went bust about 4-5x times during my 1 year stay. The first 3 times the landlord was able to fix it pretty quickly but the last time it took us about 5 days to fix and unfortunately this all happened during the span of June-August. The water pressure also was very low and the hot waters runs out 5 minutes into any shower which proved disastrous. The last and final factor that convinced us we need to move was the construction sites that sprung up literally across from living room and bedroom windows. The noise was just too much to handle on week days and weekends The only saving glory of this apartment was honestly the pool and the lovely security staff that worked there. The pool and overall setting were amazing and we def spent a lot of weekends just lounging on it and the staff were always extremely helpful and sweet regardless of the time Show less

Oudah Tower 1 Bed
Finishing and Layout of Apt
Little Kitchen Cabinets & Balcony is in Bedroom not Living Room
I have only been living in the building for about a week but so far everything has been working great. The overall apartment is spacious, light and airy. The living room is large and has very nice french windows that look out onto Emirates Road so there isn't much noise more… that comes from that. The bedroom even though when viewing looks slightly oddly shaped - it's actually much bigger than you would expect. The closet space is quite large and can fit a good amount of clothes and this is coming from a 27 year old girl who's in love with clothes! Another plus is the finishing on the apt and the overall complex itself. The bathrooms are very nicely decorated and the materials used are top quality. The pool, gym and spa area seem very clean and nice. I have yet to try but the comforting fact is that you have a choice of a sauna, steam room and Jacuzzi. The only downfalls though are the below - As someone previously living in St 2 - the entrance in and out was easier. The streets are St1 are not marked with stop signs or some barely have any signs at all so it makes slightly dangerous to drive -The kitchen has little cabinet space which is kind of restricting -The plugs for the TV in the living room are concentrated in one area so it's restricting -The main bathroom is slightly tight on counter space but that can be managed with a few accessories - just depends on how much that is important Show less

So much for the money
You need a car
JVC is perfect place if you want a lot for your money. We live in the center villas (Nakheel Villas) and they are brand-new and nice. We have 4 bedroom + 1 maid and a nice hall/livingroom. The garden has er nice size and the rooftop terrace is big enough more… to install a nice 5.000 gallons upperground pool. However living in JVC you need a car, but with 4 parking spots and even more available it's a nice place to have a car!Show less

Nakheel Townhouses in JVC are awesome!
Classy neighbors, family and pet friendliness, massive bedrooms,
No pool in the community.
A family and pet friendly area with classy people. Mostly families. Helpful neighbors. Two massive size bedrooms with the opportunity to build a 3rd one and still having a big lounge on the second floor. Perfect size garden and perfect size garage for two cars. There are lots of super more… markets and laundry around which deliver and pickup. Spinnes Market is just around the corner. Very quite area. No constructions around. Parks are just a stone cast away. We lived in JVT in the same Mediterranean townhouse design and we just loved it and two years ago we decided to move to the same townhouse in JVC. We are loving every day of our stay here. Every week there is something new being added to the community. Show less

Nakheel Townhouse
The inside of my home.
The continual construction - noise & dust.
The space and layout of our townhouse is great. The small garden is perfect as we have two small dogs. The disappointment is how much construction is still going on. The rental price does NOT reflect the inconvenience of this. We are paying top dollar! And the dust is more… terrible. I imagine in about two years time it will be fabulous community.Show less

Dont do it!
Swimming pool - when we had one and the balcony
Noise and dreadful build quality
We were conned, the agent lied outright to us from the beginning. We have 6 months left on our contract and are contemplating leaving and paying the penalty. The noise is so bad from the 3 construction sites across from us and in addition the ongoing maintenance noise within the more… building. We are not facing the pool and I really feel sorry for the people living poolside as most were completely unaware that a second phase was going to start so these people get no peace at all. We moved in and two weeks later received and email from the developer to say they were commencing phase two and hoped it wouldn't cause too much of an inconvenience! The selling point when we went to rent was the pool area - it looked amazing, lovely clean new area and the pool was great for doing lengths. That was when we had water in the pool, there has been no water in there for two months now with no chance of it happening anytime soon with the new phase being built. Anyway who would want to relax by a pool with a hundred men staring down at you from a construction site. One of the questions we asked when we found out about the new building was how it would impact the facilities. We were guaranteed that it would not impact the pool at all, another lie! We met the agent who is based in a company in the Gold and Diamond business park, she lied from the moment she opened her mouth. I asked firstly about other two beds as I felt the living space in ours was quite small. I was told it was the very last 2 bed in the building. She even had the maintenance guy lie to me. A week after moving in I learned from the head maintenance guy that there were lots of other two beds on the top floor which is what we had originally requested and they are bigger with a much better design. I was gutted :-( Secondly, I asked what construction was going to happen around us and the impact of noise as I am a really light sleeper. She is supposed to be the professional so I would have expected some honesty. I am self employed so sleep is important to keep me motivated and working hard. We will be moving within the next five months and will move to a developed area. The build quality is dreadful here too. Door handles are coming off and tiles cracking, there is a smell of sewage in the showers. The water is never hot with the system used so cold showers are the norm. The kitchen is badly designed with little or no work space. The plus points - we have loads of storage and wardrobes plus a storage room, the size of most maids room, it was piped for the washing machine and it fits everything from our second fridge freezer to bikes, golf clubs and everything else. The second plus is our balcony, it comfortably seats up to 12 people plus we have two loungers on it. Show less

JVC Townhouses
Own space and easy access is great
The various extra cars parked on the sand near the apartment blocks
Great space, nice and spacious, quiet, easy to get to and from home - about 15 mins from most places. It will be great when they complete the access roads from Hessa Street etc and correct the junctions within the community - this will bring the RTA in here more… and tidy the abandoned cars and sort the parking! Overall a great place to live.Show less

Neighbours and ease of access. Never experience any traffic getting into JVC
Lack of facilities
I purchased my villa in May. I like the place, the only problem is the lack of infrastructure and facilities in the circle.

JVC Villa
Location and potential
The dust and sand
The Villas in JVC are great value for money, good size with gardens. The one beds have a landing area which can be used as a guest room which is a bonus. The bedrooms are very spacious and the kitchen and living room area is a good size. The cooker more… is powered by gas. Although JVC is still pretty much a construction site it is coming along nicely and shops and parks are spouting up. You are away from the Marina and SZR traffic but it only takes 20 mins to get to Media City.Show less

One of the newest JVC developments
Spacious
Odd balconies
The Plaza Residence is quite a nice building to be living in apart from the below drawbacks: Spanish style balconies don't allow too much light in. Dusty area as most of the desert is still undeveloped. Phase II is still under construction / noise is disturbance is somewhat moderate

Sand & Roads
Quiet, Large places,
Roads, Sand
JVC is a pretty good community with great potential. If I have to name my top 3 annoyances it would be: 1 ) - Bad road layout, dodgy one-way systems, bad intersections with lack of road signs hence accidents on a daily basis and allot of speeding cars. Roundabouts are badly more… built and lots of rubbish in the roads. There are also only 2 exits both on Al Khail road. Need entrance from Hessa street to allow easier access. 2 ) - Lots of sand. The parks are still being built but also very very slowly, hence lots of sand everywhere! 3 ) - Lack of restaurants / larger shops.Show less

Plaza Residence 1 bedroom
The quiet area
Management
The apartments and balconies are of a good size and nice layouts. The provision of plug points is very low with not enough locations either in the living room or in the kitchen. Only gas cookers are allowed and must be connected to the provided gas pipe service, no allocation more… for electric cookers has been provided so if you try to use one the electric will trip. The pool area is of a good size and looks very nice, however the pool is not temperature controlled and the level of chlorine is so high that even after a shower it can still be smelt on swimming clothes. The building is fairly clean and is new with apartments having been handed over only in March of 2014, however the maintenance taking place is very little so it would be expected that the quality will go downhill quickly. The current building is only half of the full project so there is a construction site on the other side of the pool which means noise and disruption for at least two years. The building has central water heaters rather than heaters in each apartment and these are controlled by the building. They are constantly being turned off to save the building money which means half of the day the water supply is lukewarm at best and not hot enough to take a shower, wash dishes hygenically or to wash clothes.

JVC Resident Review
Community environment
The construction work
Having moved to Jumeriah Village Circle 4 years ago when all around was dust, I have certainly seen a village grow before my eyes. Now there are community parks being built with running tracks and lustious greenery growing around. Amazing what has been accomplished in this time. It remains more… very much a family friendly community with great neighbours. We have recently joined a JVC forum too so you can meet new people which is great especially for new families. Every evening me along with my husband and kids take a walk with our dog around the circle and often we see new parks, new people with dogs and watching the amazing sunset fall behind the marina is by far the best view. Our home is a 3 story townhouse with modern finishing touches, the bedrooms are spacious and a lovely open plan living space, great for entertaining.Show less

JVC Townhouse
I like that there are lots of friendly people, I have met while walking my dog in the park. I like that there are restaurants within walking distance,and grocery shops.
I left the Palm. Enough said. Construction, and its SANDY.
When property prices shot up, remaining in our three bed apt on Palm Jumeriah was just silly. I was determined to find a property in our housing provided budget- it was not an easy task. Wanting to remain on "this side" of Dubai, and close to our children's more… school- American School of Dubai. A realtor had to really convince me to even have a look at the "unfinished" Jumeriah Village Circle. I had seen it from Hessa, but couldn't even figure out how to get into the circle. The first viewing of the townhouse- I was SOLD. PERFECT. Great layout, and nice neutral finishing- very favorable to my American sense of style. I just wished that I could pick up the house, and put it into another location. The townhouse is NOT Huge, but big enough for our small family of 4- we do not have a live-in maid. The townhouse was brand new when we moved in, and that was also a HUGE draw for me. There is a decent sized living area, and dining area downstairs. A walk through from the foyer into the guest bath- and a laundry room AND a maids room (though it is tiny and I can't imagine someone actually living in it). We use this room as storage for our suitcases, and have our dryer in there, and hang laundry. It's convenient for us. Upstairs is a huge landing- which my neighbors have walled off to create a third bedroom. We used it as a game room for the kids- TV with video games, and even have a corner as a home office. Two spacious bedrooms- one for the kids- with two twin sized beds, and the other holds our American sized KING bed just perfect. Only complaint- as usual for Dubai- is closet space is inadequate. But, we are managing. Show less
