The locale of Jumeirah has always fascinated those with a penchant for a relaxed style of living. Characterized by independent villas and very interesting waterfront accommodation, life in Jumeirah is for the connoisseurs of good living. No wonder relatively new developments like Palm Jumeirah have taken to the name of the place synonymous with high standards of living in Dubai.

Situated adjacent to Shaikh Zayed Road, in between Interchange Nos. 5 and 6, is the Jumeirah Lakes Towers (JLT), a beautiful waterfront community also named after Jumeirah. The mixed-use development consists of soaring towers built for both residential and commercial purposes, as well as hotels and retail outlets.

Prominent among the towers is the Almas Tower, which is the largest commercial tower in Dubai and a popular venue for conventions and exhibitions. A lot of businesses are now relocating to JLT as property prices there are still stable, and it is located in a very convenient location.

The Dubai Multi Commodities Centre (DMCC), the free zone authority of JLT, is on the verge of becoming the largest free zone in the UAE. A few of the DMCC's services include commercial sales and leasing, trade finance, asset management and assistance with government services, among many others.

A unique residential address situated by a waterfront is what your home in JLT is all about. The community is divided into clusters constructed around lakes. The community has been designed in such a way that the lakes are the main attraction.

What sets JLT apart from other communities in the same area are the gorgeous man-made lakes that wind through the community and, of course, some stunningly landscaped gardens.

The homes in JLT are all equipped with central air-conditioning, built-in wardrobes and state-of-the-art fittings and amenities. Residents also have access to a private gym, swimming pool, covered parking and 24x7 security. The community is dotted with many grocery shops, supermarkets such as Carrefour and retail outlets, among others.
