Welcome to the new Chairman!

Farewell to the esteemed Ali Lootah and hello to H.E. Mohammed Ibrahim Al-Shaibani. Nakheel has a new Chairman. JVT is one of Nakheel’s prized developments and our community wishes the new board of directors a successful tenure at the helm of Nakheel and its many ventures.

Mr Lootah’s resignation follows an invitation from H.H. Shaikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum to assume a new position with the Dubai World Board.

Nakheel announced that the further changes to its board would be the addition of four new members: H.E. Mohammed Ibrahim Al-Shaibani, Mr. Sultan bin Sulayem, Mr. Khalifa Al Daboos and Mr. Issam Galadari, who will be appointed as directors to the board in addition to the current directors, Mr. Khalid bin Bakhit Al Falasi, Mr. Ibrahim Hussain Al Fardan and Mr. Adel Khalifa Al Shaer. The expanded, seven-member board will be chaired by H.E. Mohammed Ibrahim Al-Shaibani.

H.E. Mohammed Ibrahim Al-Shaibani said: “Nakheel has managed under the stewardship of Ali Lootah and his years of dedication to steady its course and return to profitability. On behalf of the new board, I would like to thank Ali and wish him the best of luck in his new role. He will undoubtedly bring his energy, drive and commitment to his new role and responsibilities.”

Beautiful JVT… looking into mirrors

Last weeks intense rains have been swept away by the blue skies. Sunny days have returned this weekend.

In every misfortune, we can always find a silver lining. These incredible photos resulted from the recent climatic weather. We’re happy to share these snippets of beauty taken by fellow JVT resident Maria. Thanks for brightening the bad days which hopefully are now just a distant memory of sopping up some leaks and clearing away some fallen trees.

Happy dry weekend to all!

Sneak Preview inside new school opening in January

I recently got a sneak preview into the new Arcadia secondary school opening in the neighborhood. It’s expected to be ready for students by February 2020. They have some great plans for the 264,000 square feet of built up area.

The building caters to students with an ultra-modern learning space with a lot of natural sunlight.  The British curriculum with GSCE, A levels and vocational programs will also be supplemented with the Sands Center Program for Entrepreneurial Leadership and plenty of enrichment opportunities. From football pitches, swimming pool, an indoor climbing area to a theatre space, the students will have fantastic facilities at their disposal.

If you missed the tour, check out the JVT Instagram Page Highlights to experience the full walk through of the soon to open Arcadia secondary school. Watch the exclusive interview with the Principal, Graham Beale at the end of the Instagram Highlight.



Halloween Houses 2019

Hello JVTers

Here’s the list of haunted Halloween houses for this year. Well, let’s hope that they are not all haunted but have plenty of candies to share. Shout out to Sara Silvana for putting the list and amazing tips together.

In case your villa is not on the list and you are welcoming children for a treat, just put out some decorations and you can be sure all the kids will stop by.

Halloween Notice for all ! 🎃
1- Please be extra careful when driving today, as a lot of kids will be walking around to trick and treat

2- If you are trick and treating, pls knock ONLY on the doors that have Halloween decorations. We should not bother any neighbors otherwise.

3- If you have Halloween decorations, and your kids decided to sleep early, or u don’t want anyone knocking on your door then put up a sign or a paper saying so

4- Trick and Treaters usually walk around between 5:30 and 8:30 at the latest. Most people stop at 7:30. Please bear with us as we are just having some fun.

5- if you are walking your dogs, pls keep them on a lead to make sure none of the kids freak out or get hurt by mistake.

6- tips for walks. Take a stroller if your child is young, even if he/she wants to walk. Take water and tissues too!

Have fun and Happy Halloween
