Find a great apartment for rent in Jumeirah Lakes Towers
Jumeirah Lakes Towers is a large residential and commercial development in Dubai comprising of 80 towers mostly filled with apartments. The authority responsible for the development and management of Jumeirah Lakes Towers is the DMCC (Dubai Multi Commodities Centre) which is headquartered in the Al Mas Tower (Diamond Tower)
JLT as it is shortened, is well known for its lakes, the iconic Almas Tower at the heart of the development and for housing each tower within a cluster of 3. There are 26 clusters named from A to Z and with the exception of Almas Tower, towers range from 35 to 45 stories in height. Each tower is uniquely designed and their apartments inside are just as distinctive.
Jumeirah Lakes Towers apartments for rent are highly sought after because they’re modern, stylish, close to Sheikh Zayed Road, conveniently located amongst shops and restaurants and because there’s some lovely lakes and parks nearby. They range from studio, 1 and 2 bedroom apartments for the most part with 3 and 4 bedroom flats also available for rent. As a freehold area, foreign landlords are keen to keep tenants happy and signed to long term tenancies so many choose to offer furnished apartments as a big draw card which can place rent a bit higher than for an unfurnished pad. However if you’re someone who doesn’t quite fancy shopping for furniture or homewares, this may be worth the extra cash.
What makes JLT so unique is the way everything is structured in clusters with a mixture of residential and commercial spaces throughout the development. Cafes and restaurants are commonly found at the base of each tower though there are other conveniences like salons, mobile phone repair shops and grocery stores. This is what makes the rental apartments in JLT so popular. Each tower has its own special designs and it makes for a very iconic skyline. As such, rental apartments on higher floors tend to have excellent views of Dubai and the Arabian Gulf.
Initially the idea was to have 4 lakes across Jumeirah Lakes Towers but it was decided that one of the lakes was to be turned into a huge park with play areas for children and a basketball court. This has proved very popular with the families and pet owners living in the area. The great thing about JLT is that residents of all walks of life choose to make it their home. From young professionals and couples working in the area to families with children and pets - you’re bound to make friends easily when renting in JLT.
The popularity of each tower depends on a number of factors, often access to either JLT or Damac Properties metro stations as well as access to Sheikh Zayed Road. However popular towers to find an apartment for rent in Jumeirah Lakes Towers include Lake Point Tower, Lake View Tower, V3 Tower and Green Lake Towers. Apartments in Lake Elucio are very popular as they are close to the park and kids play areas. Finding an apartment for rent in JLT is easy - it’s deciding which tower to live in that’s the hard part!
