Jumeirah Beach Residence (also known as JBR) is a 1.7 kilometres (1.1mi) long, 2 square kilometres (0.77 sq mi) gross floor area waterfront community located against the Arabian Gulf in Dubai Marina in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. It is a residential development and contains 40 towers (35 are residential and 5 are hotels). JBR can accommodate about 15,000 people, living in its apartments and hotel rooms. The Project has 6,917 apartments, from 900sqft (84 m²) studios to 5,500 sq ft (510 m²) penthouses. JBR has a total of six residential blocks, Shams, Amwaj, Rimal, Bahar, Sadaf and Murjan (in order from east to west). The developer, Dubai Properties (a subsidiary of Dubai Holding), launched JBR in August 2002. This 6 billion dirham project was completed in 2010.

The Walk at Jumeirah Beach Residence is a 1.7 kilometer strip at the ground and plaza level. The Walk is one of Dubai’s outdoor and tourist attractions, with activities such as street painting, recycled art displays, comedy shows, sand sculptures, photography displays, restaurants, cafés and booths selling fashion accessories and crafts. It is located adjacent to Hilton Dubai Jumeirah Resort and Hilton Dubai The Walk, which opened their doors in October 2000.

The Beach at Jumeirah Beach Residence is a retail complex constructed on the actual beach in front of JBR by Meraas Holding, a company owned by Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai. The development, comprising four distinct plazas, occupies the bulk of the beachfront between the Hilton and Sheraton hotels and houses a number of levels of parking as well as seventy retail and food and beverage outlets, alongside entertainment facilities.

Bluewaters Island is a man-made island being constructed opposite Jumeirah Beach Residence by Meraas, a leading real estate developer based in Dubai. The development will comprise hotels, apartments, villas, dining and entertainment facilities, and Ain Dubai, a 210 m (689 ft) tall Ferris wheel, which will be the tallest in the world when completed. The island will be linked by a highway to Sheikh Zayed Road, and a pedestrian bridge and cable car to Jumeirah Beach Residence. A monorail system will link the island to the Dubai Metro.
