What Not To Expect

Easy Accessibility With Your Car

Traffic woes are every resident and visitors complaint when it comes to JBR. The single-lane road is always cramped, be it night or day because even the visitors who don't need to make a stop decide to cruise by the road to enjoy the lively neighbourhood. The emergence of Dubai Tram was supposed to resolve the issue of traffic in the area, but instead further increased the hustle as the roads became more congested because of the stations and railway. 

Furthermore, parking can be a hassle as the free parking, especially in the evening when the single-lane road slows down to a crawl. The free available parking slots always seems to be occupied, while the underground parking comes up to be quite costly for frequent visitors, at AED20 for an hour. Furthermore, there are no malls grouping retailers together, which makes walking to different shops quite bothersome.

The appalling traffic frustrates many visitors and residents, causing a blister amongst them.

With apartments ranging from studios, penthouses, lofts, garden apartments, duplexes through to one to four bedroom apartments, JBR hosts a modern facade in an Arabesque setting.Views from all apartments show either the beautiful Arabian Gulf, the landscaped inner courtyards, or Dubai Marina (which is located right behind JBR).
