Community Overview & Price information

The Lakes is part of Emaar's Emirates Living master-development which includes communities such as Emirates Hills, Springs, Meadows, The Greens and The Views.

The Lakes itself is a master-development and has six separate villa & townhouse enclaves offering both high-end & luxury quality villas and townhouses.

On average, villa & townhouse prices in The Lakes are usually higher than Meadows or the Springs. There are several reasons for this:

  1. The Lakes has a prime, independent location right off the main entrance of Emirates Living from Sheikh Zayed Road. The Lakes also has excellent connectivity towards Al Khail Road, The Greens, TECOM and Barsha.
  2. The Lakes is an independent gated community which in turn has six other independent, gated communities.
  3. The Lakes was originally developed by Emaar as a rental generating assert but villas & townhouses were sold close to peak (2007 & 2008).
  4. The Lakes has more facilities - basketball courts, tennis courts, large retail & community center (The Lakes Club)
  5. Part of The Lakes is located along the Montgomerie Golf Course Course
