Jumeirah Village Circle

by rayan on June 12, 2023

Launched in 2005, Jumeirah Village Circle (JVC) is a freehold master development by Nakheel located alongside Sheikh Zayed Road, the main highway in Dubai.

Spanning over 870 hectares, JVC is divided into six districts and offers a variety of housing options, including large villas, townhouses, and apartments. While some properties are fully occupied, there is also ongoing construction activity in the area.

As of the end of 2016, approximately 25,000 people were residing in JVC, and it was projected that the population would increase to 300,000 once the 560-hectare community is fully completed.

The Circle Mall, which is currently under construction, is set to feature 235 shops, an anchor supermarket, two department stores, a multi-screen cinema, a health clinic, cafés, restaurants, and a food court. Although the mall missed its target opening date in 2017, as of July 2020, it had reached structural completion, with the facade halfway finished.

As of July 2020, there were 235 completed towers or townhouse rows in JVC, with an additional 110 under construction. Numerous villas were either complete or under construction, and over 100 residential, commercial, and hospitality buildings were in the design stage. However, there were also several uncompleted and abandoned developments in the area.

The quality of buildings in JVC varies depending on the individual developer, ranging from well-finished larger developments to smaller ones of lesser quality.

Many existing villas in Jumeirah Village Circle offer spacious rooms, balconies, and up to five bedrooms. For those seeking smaller properties with large gardens, Jumeirah Village Triangle, located nearby, caters to couples and small families. JVC may be an attractive option for those looking to purchase property in a well-located area before prices rise.


Road access in Dubai is convenient for residents living at the junction of Sheikh Zayed Highway and Al Khail Road. With a car, it is easy to reach various destinations in Dubai. The airport is approximately 38 minutes away; Dubai Mall takes around 21 minutes to reach; and Dubai Marina and Palm Jumeirah are about 20 minutes away. Traveling to Abu Dhabi typically takes around one hour and twenty minutes.

On October 12, 2016, three new entry-exit points connecting Jumeirah Village Circle to Hessa Street were opened. This improvement was part of a Dh18.5 million road improvement scheme undertaken by the master developer Nakheel. Although the intention was to provide easier access, reduce journey times, and improve traffic flow in JVC, the reality is that Hessa Street remains congested and prone to regular accidents, causing frustration among residents.

When it comes to public transport, Jumeirah Village Circle faces limitations, and the options are mainly limited to taxi services. However, there has been an improvement with the introduction of a new feeder bus, J01, which operates every 25 minutes and connects to the Mall of the Emirates. This has been a positive development for residents without cars who previously faced challenges with transportation. Additionally, there have been discussions about the potential implementation of a tram system in the future, as indicated by the developer.
