Jumeirah Lake Towers

by rayan on June 12, 2023

Jumeirah Lakes Towers (JLT) is a mixed-use waterfront district situated behind Dubai Marina. It is known for housing the Dubai Multi Commodities Center Free Zone, the largest and fastest-growing free zone in the UAE. Additionally, it has become an increasingly significant regional hub for trade and enterprise in the commodities sector. Plans are underway for the construction of the world’s tallest commercial tower, nicknamed ‘Burj 2020,’ in this area.

JLT currently consists of 87 tower blocks, arranged in 23 clusters, surrounding three lakes and a park. These blocks include commercial and residential buildings, hotels, shops, and leisure facilities. While the focal point is the impressive 66-story Almas Tower, the remaining structures range from 35 to 45 floors in height.

With a growing population of over 35,000 residents, JLT attracts singles and young couples who have relocated to Dubai for work. Unlike traditional houses or villas, the area primarily features high-rise apartment blocks alongside sophisticated corporate towers made of glass. The main appeal lies in the proximity to workplaces, making it convenient for residents. However, JLT also appeals to those who work outside the district but enjoy a vibrant, city-centric lifestyle within a high-rise setting.

Compared to the more expensive properties near Jumeirah Beach or Dubai Marina, apartments in JLT offer a more affordable option. Yet, the JLT lifestyle is highly desirable, thanks to the beautifully landscaped lakeside promenade. This promenade serves as an ideal location for leisurely walks, jogging, cycling, and community events.
