Jumeirah Lake Towers

September 5th 2016


With every new construction venture, Dubai keeps on proving that when it comes to progressing at a rapid rate, no other metropolis can stand to be in their league. This city is the epitome of a modern cosmopolitan and the rapidly inflating sector of Dubai tourism just goes on to prove that to the rest of the world. A perfect example of the city’s multiple marvels is the Jumeirah Lake Towers, a perfect blend of technology, innovation and creativity.

Jumeirah Lake Towers


With 79 towers in total, Jumeirah Lake Towers are part of perhaps the biggest construction project in the history of Dubai. What makes these towers unique is that they have been constructed on the very edge of three artificially created lakes – the JLT Lake, Lake Almas East and Lake Almas West. Originally the plan was to create four lakes but the fourth lake was eventually drained to build a park instead. The JLT will consist of residential and corporate complexes. The towers at the outskirts will consist of anywhere from 35 to 45 floors all together while the showcasing tower (situated at the very center) has 66 floors. The centerpiece has been named Almas Tower as it is the only tower in the entire project which will have its own island and situated right in the middle of Lake Almas East and Lake Almas West. To make navigation easy in this massive project, the residential towers have been specifically designed in a cluster of three. As of 2015, only eleven towers remain uncompleted because of one reason or another, while the rest have not only been completed, but are also open for business. The project’s first completed tower was the Saba Tower, inaugurated back in 2006.
