About Jumeirah Village
Jumeirah Village is a residential development in south west Dubai. It is designed as a self-contained community with a mix of attractive housing options, retail spaces, parks, and other amenities. The development is strategically located between Sheikh Zayed Road and Emirates Road, providing easy access to various Dubai hotspots.
The community is divided into two areas: Jumeirah Village Circle (JVC) and Jumeirah Village Triangle (JVT). Geometry takes the spotlight in the architectural layout of these two neighborhoods. JVC, in line with its name, adopts a circular arrangement, whereas the directly adjacent JVT is built in the shape of a perfect triangle.
