Jumeirah Village Circle Area Guide

One of the master-planned communities for families that was pioneered by Nakheel, the top real estate developer in Dubai, is Jumeirah Village Circle (JVC).

It is located in the heart of new Dubai, surrounded by landscaped gardens, and offers a variety of amenities, making it an ideal location for renters and buyers.

There are several parks, grocery stores, schools, early education centres, and pharmacies throughout the community, so you never have to go too far from home.

The Neighbourhood
