JBR, short for Jumeirah Beach Residence, is the beach-facing development instantly recognisable for its sandy-hued towers. The area is part of Dubai Marina and sits between the central, water-lining part of the development and the seashore. JBR is claimed to be the biggest residential quarter in the world. The complex runs the entire 1.7km length of The Walk, Dubai’s most popular beachside boulevard with its restaurants, cafes and smart shops. At podium level, the apartments have their own walkways, gardens, shared pools, shops and convenience stores.
