Positives
Spacious, nearby park area, nearby shops, restaurants and facilities. Near metro if you use.
Negatives
For my apartment, the lack of maintenance, unfinished building in cluster, and the landlord
The MAG214 apartments, assuming you have JLT/Springs view (not view of the unfinished building in the cluster) are spacious and great. But they are old for Dubai, so select your landlord carefully. I have personally ended up with an apartment where the landlord has chosen the quick route with repairs more… and maintenance, as a result, I am almost bi-weekly ending up doing smaller repairs and maintenance myself (spotlights, cupboards etc). So don't sign a contract with a "small maintenance fee". I've had a long standing battle with landlord/property management company, to get aircon units maintained. I had professionals in to look at them, and their view was, they've never been maintained or cleaned and are about to fall apart. The bathrooms in the building sadly have ugly tiling, weird color schemes, but otherwise fine. However, the master bedroom has a shower for children, most adult could not fit into it. So I've chosen to use second bedroom as master. Many landlords have sold their car park, and its not included in the lease. Worth also checking before you sign a contract. I spent months fighting to keep the car park which came with the flat, as others kept taking it (presumably because when I moved in, it had been free for a while). Nearby park and running track (1.2km/1 mile) is very nice. The gym is a laugh, it's in a terrible state and neither myself, nor guests visiting have wanted to use it. Pool area is quite nice, with great views and although small its a well kept and cosy little pool area. Security are really friendly and helpful, so are the building staff generally. The building itself is kept in fairly good state generally. However, the cluster and outside area is in a poor state, with plastic bollards to prevent long term parking in short term stay etc. Looks horrible.Show less

Positives
Location, Security, Quiet, Less traffic
Negatives
Size of apartment, Expensive
Thumbs up to MAG 214 for its location. Walking distance to DAMAC metro station as well as to so many good eateries. Perfect location for families with kids too as there is a huge garden behind with lots of events happening every week. A 1 km soft jogging track, more… work out facilities, basket ball court available as well. Building security and pool facility is worth mentioning. Lots of departmental stores nearby. A little old and less maintained compared to a few towers nearby. Unlike marina JLT is not very crowded as well so makes it perfect as a residential place decent traffic during peak hours. Overall a good place for a small family or couples to stay.Show less

Parking problem and poor maintenance
I moved to JLT six months ago as I couldn't handle anymore neither the traffic nor the prices in Dubai Marina. What you will first like about this tower is the size of each room as you will be surprised with the "non sense" architecture of the majority of JLT more… Towers.. The problem in all JLT is the parking spaces for both tenants and visitors. Though I am renting a 2 Bedrooms apartment, I got only one parking space. you need to take the elevator to the ground floor and then walk down the parking as you cannot access it directly with the elevator. The visitor's parking is only for 3 hours and this is a policy implemented by DMCC in all JLT towers. The area is calm and you have all the shops/supermarket/restaurants around you There isn't any dedicated team for the maintenance requests and emergencies inside your apartment and you might need to find a maintenance company ready to come and serve you in the middle of the night The pool and gym are a little bit smallShow less

Everything else
It lacks space, storage, parking (although it has 3 basements). The traffic is everything but fun. Nearby shops are absent. Pool, gym are a joke. Noise is high as other projects are still under construction even at 3 am!!

I am resident of Jumeirah Lakes Towers, such a peaceful environment here and good place to live. Value for money. Their new addition to parks and basketball court is absolutely amazing.

Positives
Location, parking, pool actually in the sun, a walk away from great amenities/public transport
Negatives
Build quality, lifts, moths/bugs in the building, noise levels from outside, kitchen/bathroom awful taste re:decoration
Overall, a good flat, at a relatively reasonable price (given the market) - cons: lifts are painfully slow, soundproofing is very poor, a lot of bugs/moths etc in the building - finish quality is poor considering its a relatively new building, looks like it was rushed - kitchens and bathrooms more… are possibly the worst colour combo's you could dream up Pros: overall good value, good location, walk to the park, walk to the metro/dubai marina - now the traffic has been sorted out its an excellent spot (even though the one access to SZR is a bit ludicrous)Show less
