Can anyone give assistance on the particulars of the following apartments that were given to me as choices of accommodations.
Jumeirah Lake Towers,
I would second that - Barsha or JLT. My impression is that JLT is a bit more expensive than Barsha, but that probably depends on the building as well.ziokendo said:Of all the above I would choose Barsha if very near to Mall of Emirates and in a decent building, or JLT.
Motorcity if you work near here and you plan to get a car as soon as you arrive would be another decent option also.
Discovery gardens and IMPZ are much more lower end compared to the others so would avoid.

The buildings very near to the metro are more expensive in JLT, most ones on the other end of the "lakes" seems to come by very cheap, due to the big over-supply (with also further new buildings due for completition), but then it also depends on the tower.I would second that - Barsha or JLT.

When I was new (and naive and trusting) in Dubai, I rented my first apartment in Barsha. I believed an agent who said "the pool will be filled in two weeks". I stayed in that building for one year, saw the rent plummet from 80K for one bed to 50K for one bed, saw the tenants change from singles/couples to 5 salespeople to a flat, but the swimming pool never got filledYou're more likely to have a pool and gym in your building in JLT than you are in Barsha.
