Dubai: Jumeirah Beach Residence

This is just a picture series of the Jumeirah Beach Residence project built in Dubai (you know, the commie block looking yellow towers that all look the same).
This is an interesting development I think which is why I wanted to make this thread.
Make what you want of it, I think you might find some surprises here.


Contains 40 towers (36 residential, 4 hotel)
Towers are up to 56 floors in height
Contains 22 million square feet of space
Was the largest single phase development in the world
Located an island in Dubai Marina
The heights are unknown unfortunately

2001 – Developer’s webcam

Model – Taken by Alt-Tab on SSC I think

2004 – Don’t know who took these, way too long ago. Maybe Trances or Dubai Lover on SSC

Early 2005

Insane construction – From AltinD, Dubai Lover, Alt Tab

Concrete horrors – same as above

Night time construction – developer webcam and AltinD

Poor Hotel

Crane City – Alt Tab and Dubai Lover (SSC)

Construction from far away – from someone in JLT I think

Under Construction Skyline

From the marina – Imre (I think, he didn’t watermark his pictures when he started)

Near completed – mostly from Imre and some from chrisdubai on flickr

Aerial pictures – one from Imre, one from Brian McMurrow I think.

Various Views – haven’t a clue where from, sorry. Think early SSC

Completed – from Imre

From the beach – Dubai Lover (I think)

Al Fattan Towers

Completed inner area – From various residents in JBR

Crazy Density – mostly from Imre but some from others such as AltinD, etc
