Advantageously located near Interchange 5 on Sheikh Zayed Road, and covering 25 acres, it has become one of the most sought-after lifestyle destinations of the world.
Home to residential buildings, serviced apartments, and hotels, the self-contained bustling high-rise district offers an array of entertainment venues and restaurants. The area has grown into a fully-fledged waterfront lifestyle destination with marinas, beaches within walking distance, and a walkway promenade winding through its midst, not to forget the breathtaking views of the palm and the SZR.

Jumeirah Lake Towers

Located on the opposite side of Marina, off Sheikh Zayed Road with an area of over 200 hectares, JLT’s dynamic lakefront community comprises 64 attractive residential and commercial towers that include hotels, leisure and retail outlets with over 50,000 people transacting life and work here.

Business Bay is a mixed residential / commercial space with quite a few hospitality institutions, well connected with all the major areas of Dubai. With the completion of the Dubai Water Canal, Business Bay now has been the most sough-after waterfront development.
