Jumeirah Lakes Towers (JLT) is a unique development that comprises both residential and commercial projects. This 200-hectare development was planned in order to create a perfect harmony between businesses and residents, which it has successfully achieved.
Located just across from Dubai Marina, the residential towers make up 45 per cent of JLT, 21 per cent is dedicated to commercial office use, and hotels, restaurants, and retail outlets make up 34 per cent. The residential towers range from 35 to 45-storeys, except for the 66-storey centerpiece, and are organized in 26 clusters listed in alphabetical order (from A to Z). This architectural marvel surrounds intertwined man-made lakes: Lake Alma West, Lake Alma East, and JLT Lake.
The wide selection of apartment styles, amenities, and accessibility makes this an extremely popular location for all kinds of residents, families and singletons alike. All along the waterfront, there is a plethora of outdoor restaurants, cafés, grocery stores and play areas for children, all within walking distance for residents.
