JLT is a popular residential neighbourhood that has witnessed a spike of independent eateries and stores over the past few years. Its pedestrian-friendly walkways attract families and professionals looking for a calm and serene neighbourhood away from Dubai’s frenetic pace, yet still relatively close to the entertainment options of Dubai Marina. Many of JLT‘s residents work across Sheikh Zayed Road in Dubai Media City and Dubai Internet City.
You’ll find residents rollerblading, cycling, jogging and playing all sorts of sports around the promenades that line the lakes.
People choose to live in JLT because it gives them the perfect combination of proximity to major landmarks, and the seclusion and greenery of a suburb.
JLT is perfect for individuals commuting between Dubai and Abu Dhabi, and small families looking for a comfortable place to raise their children.
Dog lovers also adore this pet-friendly area.
Many people choose to live in JLT if they also happen to be working there. The lure of a highway-less commute is an attractive proposition. And since they’re saving so much time by not commuting, these residents have more time to enjoy a cold beverage after work. If you feel the same craving, head out to one of the dozens of pubs and eateries scattered around the neighbourhood!
JLT also offers a fitness-concentrated lifestyle; dozens of gyms and sports centres, in addition to athletic community clubs and events.
From glass residential and office towers to cool graffiti–clad walls and tiny, colourful cafés, JLT is definitely not for those looking for a “chilled” beach-like atmosphere. This area is bubbling!
One-way traffic systems can mean a long drive around the perimeter of the neighborhood to get to and from certain clusters.
JLT is all about high-rise apartment living, ranging from studios to three-bedrooms. Quality, size and price vary depending on the individual towers.
