Living in Jaddaf Waterfront
So, you’re thinking of moving to Jaddaf Waterfront, the burgeoning residential neighbourhood by the Dubai Creek?
Once a site for ship-making, this area has developed in recent times with hotels and cultural sites sprouting, giving it a hip, buzz-worthy appeal. With the opening of a number of residential complexes in the area, it is quickly acquiring an attractive reputation among homeowners and renters.
A peaceful waterfront residence at an affordable price
Waterfront living is sought-after for its peaceful ambience and vibrant. Maybe it’s in our nature. Whatever the reason, if views of the beautiful Dubai Creek don’t convince you, then the serene environment should. Compared to Dubai Marina’s hustle and bustle, heavy traffic and high rents, Jaddaf Waterfront isn’t as densely populated or commercialised. Residents enjoy a neighbourhood that is largely free of congestion, noise, pollution, and just minutes away from the airport.
Another one of the benefits of living in Jaddaf Waterfront that makes it a haven for couple and families is the boardwalk. Take a long walk, or go for a run, and catch the skyline and sunset views while you’re at it.
Plenty of cultural attractions to keep your family entertained
With plenty of hotels and cultural centres in the neighbourhood, you won’t have to go far for evenings out with family and friends. Signature attractions include Jaddaf Waterfront Sculpture Park, Dubai’s first open-air arts and sculpture park that accommodates all the regular features of a park (community space, food trucks, children’s playground) in its visually stunning premises.
Regular events such as film screenings, performances and talks curated by the Jameel Arts Centre also draw in a crowd. The Arts Centre is home to many educational and arts initiatives for people of all ages. And the soon-to-open Mohammed Bin Rashid Library adds to the extensive list of cultural attractions and benefits of living in Jaddaf Waterfront.
There are also many excellent fine dining options at Palazzo Versace Hotel, where children can enjoy swimming lessons and games at the Kids Club.
Located between Sheikh Zayed Road and Al Khail Road, Jaddaf Waterfront is well-connected to other parts of Dubai and schools, hospitals, and other amenities are within a short driving distance. Jaddaf Waterfront also boasts its own metro station. Its proximity to Festival City, where the mall and other entertainment attractions can be found, and the airport, are a lovely bonus.
