A Nakheel masterplanned community serving, in the main, families with villas and townhouses. Some apartment buildings can now also be found on the outskirts of Jumeirah Village Triangle (JVT).
Last year security barriers to the district were removed by the master developer, leading to heightened concerns over security. Nakheel said it had make the move to cut congestion into what has become a "mature community" and needed a better free flow of traffic.
The community is not that well served by retail - yet. Supermarkets include F Mart Supermarket, Safestway Supermarket and Triangle Supermarket. However the area is well connected to the better served Motor City, Springs or Meadows. The long in development Al Khail Avenue will eventually offer a more significant retail and entertainment and serve Jumeirah Village, Jumeirah Park and other upcoming neighbourhoods in the vicinity.
There are two schools in JVT, both follow the British curriculum. Located in District 5 is Sunmarke School, which offers schooling from FS1 to Year 13. Located in District 9 is the Arcadia Preparatory School which delivers primary education until Year 6.
