The district is located on Sheikh Zayed Road with 25 points of vehicular access. Residents of Jumeriah Central will enjoy a self-sufficient and holistic mixed-use experience, through a range of facilities including schools, offices, parks, shopping centres, smart police services and comprehensive community amenities.

The all-season city district will comprise 9 million sq.ft of retail space including three malls, 4.5 million sq.ft of outdoor shopping space and supported by more than 44,000 car parking spaces.
