Dubai – MENA Herald: Jumeirah Beach Residence, a Dubai Properties (DP) retail destination, has partnered with GreenParking, the only one-stop-shop for environmentally friendly car park management in the Middle East, to enhance parking facilities at the Jumeirah Beach Residence (JBR) area. By introducing three new car parks and managing the on-street parking, the newly operated facility, operational from August 3rd 2016, aims to enhance residents’ convenience, grow potential footfall, and enrich visitors’ experience.
The parking experience at the popular water front destination is set to be eased further through improved signage, including clear indication of parking space availability, valet parking, on-street VIP parking and operators in all car parks to assist visitors. Parking areas are located at Murjan Towers, Bahar Ramada Plaza Hilton, Hilton Dubai Jumeirah Resort and on-street along JBR. There are now 600 parking spaces available, and more to come in the future.
“Utilising 20 years of experience in car parking operations in Dubai, GreenParking has optimised available parking in the popular district whilst minimising on street parking violations at JBR. With easier identification via large and clear installed signage, the residents and visitors of JBR will experience upgradation in their parking facilities. Further, our friendly staff and smart parking guidance system will direct them to the closest available parking spot, offering more convenience.” said Sam Alawiye, CEO of GreenParking.
Juma Bin Darwish, Executive Director Retail & Hotel Asset Management at Dubai Properties commented, “JBR is globally recognised as a leading mixed-use destination in the region, and welcomes over 12 million tourists annually. We are confident that enhancing the parking experience will strengthen JBR’s position as a beachside favourite destination among residents and tourists, as well as positively impact the businesses in the community.”
Residents and businesses in JBR are keen to see changes that will ensure parking in the area is improved through a dedicated parking system.
“JBR is such a lovely area to live in, with so much to do and a beautiful beach as well, but it was difficult for our friends to visit us because they couldn’t find parking or actually didn’t know where to go to find one. However, we are already experiencing a positive impact due to the latest improvements in parking management and are delighted to have dedicated and regulated parking areas for our visitors.” said Rob, a resident of JBR.
The popular JBR district is DP’s first development. As one of Dubai’s most iconic destinations, it boasts views of the Arabian Gulf besides an abundance of al fresco restaurants and cafes. The area regularly hosts fashionable street markets and street art festivals.
