JBR? Oh you mean "Just Built Randomly"???

Good luck.............

If only there were a former Dubai Holding employee around here......... I'm sure he'd be able to confirm the rumour that certain.... er.... short cuts were taken on 'build quality', 'fixtures and fittings' etc...........

Don't need any employee to confirm the short cuts in the fitting... you just have to live there

There's something to be said for the plaza level, even if the shops aren't doing any business... it's nice being able to walk to buy milk and bread without going onto a road.

Gotham City as I call it, the people who are there are very happy, not a bad location, access to restaurants etc etc. Good luck

Im in JBR and I like it there, dont think the build is any worse than anywhere else but agree that the buildings do not look as nice as some from the outside,security is shite and you do not have to live there to use the swimming pools but there are a lot worse places in Dubai to live, the walk is nice, getting a taxi is easy, its quiet up on the plaza level as no one will walk up the steps, internal finishes are a lot better than I have seen in some other apartments when looking around but not brilliant, wouldnt like to think I had bought one but as somewhere to live I like it.

Hi all
Thanx for the responses. Sorry, been busy, shippers here etc.
We r moving there due to DH's colleague moving back to the UK and DH being transferred as its cheaper for him to work in Dubai than it is in Norway, its also rented by the company, all bills paid etc. Makes life easier for us.
We lived in Abu Dhabi, so we know about build quality/fixtures and fittings!

Thanx again
