Jumeirah Lake Towers (JLT) is a waterfront community, carefully positioned around 4 artificial lakes. The concept behind this area of the city was to create ‘community living’ in an all-purpose project where people could live, work and be entertained within this one self-sufficient district. Using distinctive architecture to provide an appealing sense of individuality the area hosts attractive residential buildings alongside office towers, hotels, leisure and retail out-lets.
While JLT lacks the exclusive positioning of Dubai Marina which boasts a pristine beach on its doorstep, this district does enjoy a picturesque setting. The whole area comprises beautiful garden lined avenues, manmade lakes, sculptural features, unique water ways and open communal areas.
JLT offers a good alternative to the more expensive areas of Dubai while not sacrificing on quality. The general build quality of property in this area is comparable to Dubai Marina and therefore property prices are relatively attractive. However JLT’s lower level of exclusivity, lack of direct access to a beach and poor road network are all disadvantages on the rental market and while prices are lower so are the average rental incomes.
To coincide with the ideology behind this neighbourhood JLT features a wide selection of facilities. Quiet community areas, shaded walkways and café terraces are commonly found throughout the area adding to its relaxed feel. In addition the district is well serviced with schools, mosques, health centres and so on to achieve the complete community experience.
