PROS OF LIVING IN JUMEIRAH VILLAGE TRIANGLE

1. STRATEGIC LOCATION OF THE COMMUNITY
Jumeirah Village Triangle is ideally located at the junction of the Sheikh Mohammed Bin Zayed Road (E311) and Al Khail Road (E44), which is one of the biggest benefits of living in JVT. Residents will find that commutes to other parts of Dubai are made easy with access to two of the city’s major highways. This makes Jumeirah Village Triangle ideal for those who work in other parts of Dubai. JVT is also nestled between other residential communities such as Jumeirah Village Circle, The Springs and Dubai Production City. Residents can easily access the amenities in these other developments, such as community malls, restaurants and hospitals.
2. LARGE CHOICE OF PROPERTIES
If you are keen on moving to Jumeirah Village Triangle, the community is home to apartments, villas and townhouses, providing a variety of choices for potential residents. This wide-portfolio is among the top benefits of living in Jumeirah Village Triangle, which also offers properties for freehold ownership. Couples and families will find Jumeirah Village Triangle to be an ideal home with cosy townhouses ranging from 1 to 3 bedrooms, and spacious villas ranging from 2 to 5 bedrooms. The rental villas in JVT are known for their large plot sizes, in particular, featuring spacious and landscaped backyards, airy living spaces and a maid’s room, ideal for those who want space for their family to grow.
While Jumeirah Village Triangle predominantly features villas and townhouses, there are a number of apartment complexes bordering the community as well. These are perfect for single professionals and couples who prefer smaller homes while still enjoying the community and family-friendly vibe.
The prices to rent properties in Jumeirah Village Triangle are on the affordable side of the spectrum, which is excellent for budget-conscious renters. Prices to rent studios in JVT start from AED 30k, while townhouses for rent in JVT start from AED 70k. However, the JVT villas for rent, which have plot sizes of around 7,200 sq.ft, start from AED 98.8k, according to Bayut’s current listings.
3. FAMILY-FRIENDLY COMMUNITY AND AMENITIES
One of the notable advantages of living in JVT Dubai is the community’s abundance of amenities.

4. NEARBY EDUCATIONAL OPTIONS
Parents can choose to send their children to nurseries and schools in the community itself, which is one of the significant advantages of living in Jumeirah Village Triangle. For younger children, the Jumeirah International Nursery is regarded as one of the best British nurseries in Dubai. On the other hand, parents with older children can choose between Sunmarke School and Arcadia School in JVT. Otherwise, parents moving to JVT Dubai have the option of looking at schools and nurseries in neighbouring residential communities, such as JSS International School in JVC, Victory Heights Primary School and GEMS United School in Dubai Sports City and Dubai British School in The Springs.
5. UPCOMING SHOPPING MALL
Those living in JVT have another attraction to look forward to soon, which is the upcoming Al Khail Avenue. This much-anticipated shopping mall in JVT sprawls across 2 million sq.ft and will feature well-known brands and stores, multi-screen cinemas, supermarkets, restaurants and cafes and a hotel, once complete. This ensures that residents living in the apartments and villas in JVT will not have to step out of the community for shopping, dining and entertainment!
6. CLOSE BY TO MANY ATTRACTIONS
Thinking about renting in JVT Dubai? The fact that JVT has many nearby attractions might sway your vote in favour of moving here. JVT’s convenient location means that while residents are waiting for the upcoming Al Khail Avenue, they can always visit City Centre Me’aisem in Dubai Production City.

THINGS TO CONSIDER BEFORE LIVING IN JVT DUBAI
While there is so much to love about this community, there are some factors to keep in mind before moving in to JVT. Here are some aspects of Jumeirah Village Triangle for residents to consider before they arrive at a decision.
1. ONGOING CONSTRUCTION
While JVT is mostly a completed development, there are a few apartment complexes at the edges of the community that are still under construction. Also, the upcoming shopping mall in the community may add to the noise in the area. Although this may be a significant concern for some potential residents, once these projects are complete, they will add plenty of amenities and attractions to the area.
2. LIMITED ACCESS TO PUBLIC TRANSPORT
Many Dubai residents depend on the local public transport such as the Dubai Metro or the RTA public buses. However, Jumeirah Village Triangle currently does not have any metro stations nearby or bus stations within the community. This may be a challenge for residents who rely on public transport, making JVT a better choice for those who own cars. Alternatively, those living in JVT can commute via RTA taxis or other options such as Uber and Careem.
3. LACK OF HOSPITALS AND CLINICS IN THE COMMUNITY
One of the notable disadvantages of living in Jumeirah Village Triangle is that there are not any hospitals or clinics located within the community. This might prove to be a disadvantage for those who prefer having healthcare options at hand. However, neighbouring communities such as The Springs and Dubai Production City have Mediclinic branches, which are 15 minutes away by car. The nearest hospitals are NMC Royal Hospital, DIP and Saudi German Hospital in Barsha, both of which are only 15 – 20 minutes away.
Overall, Jumeirah Village Triangle is an excellent location for those who want affordable living along with a community vibe and family-friendly amenities. While the limited access to public transport and healthcare options are things to consider, the facilities already available to residents outweigh the cons. Moreover, JVT is still a growing community, which means that more amenities are always being added.
