Strategic location


 Strategically located at the heart of new Dubai in the southern end of the city, DMCC is the master developer of Jumeirah Lakes Towers (JLT) communities and the upcoming Uptown District. These act as a gateway to south Dubai and beyond to Abu Dhabi. The district benefits from easy access to Sheikh Zayed Road, Expo City Dubai, the biggest port in the Middle East in Jebel Ali, and Al Maktoum International Airport and Dubai International Airport, so that residents, businesses and visitors can enjoy direct connectivity with the rest of Dubai and the world.


Live and work in one vibrant community


Over 100,000 people live, work and visit DMCC’s vibrant JLT community every day. JLT is one of the region’s leading mixed-use developments, spread across the 2 square kilometre community and its 87 residential and commercial towers. Central to JLT’s appeal is its diverse offering of leisure, hospitality, dining, and recreation facilities – from F&B pop-ups to five-star dining, community markets to high-end retail. JLT will continue its organic growth in the years to come, with enhancements being continuously made throughout every aspect of the community, from new sports facilities, parks, transport options and district-wide energy and water usage projects that reduce costs for businesses and residents.
