Jumeirah Lakes Towers is a skyscraper cluster and free zone with many residential, office and hotel towers, situated in South Dubai opposite Dubai Marina from Sheikh Zayed Road. The neighbourhood is a brand new so called free zone and is landscaped around 3 lakes, it resembles Miami and Chicago. This site was only desert a few years ago. The tallest tower there is Almas Tower, one of Dubai's tallest ones. We visited Jumeirah Lakes Towers the last day in Dubai, before our flight home.

Almas Tower, the tallest of Jumeirah Lakes Towers and second tallest of Dubai (2014), has 68 floors and was completed in 2009, Dubai's tallest building until Burj Khalifa was complete in 2010. The facade is covered in green glass.

Gold Tower, a skyscraper with golden glass. There is also a Silver Tower.
