Doha Festival City construction to begin next month
Muzaffar Rizvi 28 March 2011
http://www.khaleejtimes.com/biz/insi...ction=business

DUBAI — Al-Futtaim Group and Qatar Islamic Bank (QIB) on Sunday announced that the construction of the Dh6 billion Doha Festival City will begin next month following the appointment of the project’s managers, architects and engineers.

Construction of phase one of the state-of-the-art project — the first of its kind in the country — will start with a ground-breaking for Swedish furnishing giant IKEA in April 2011. This phase is expected to be completed by the second half of 2012, with phase two scheduled for completion by 2014.

“I am extremely happy that Doha Festival City will break ground next month and in a very short period of time become the most advanced entertainment, retail and hospitality complex in the State of Qatar,” Al-Futtaim Group Vice-Chairman Omar Al Futtaim said in an e-mailed statement to Khaleej Times.

The 433,847-square metre entertainment, retail, hospitality and commercial facility, set to become a driving force behind Qatar’s diverse economic development, will be designed by DP Architects, with Arab Engineering Bureau appointed as project architects. MACE International are project managers and Al-Futtaim Investment Management are investment managers.

Al-Futtaim, QIB, Aqar Real Estate Investment Company and a private investor are partners in this joint venture project.

Al-Futtaim Group CEO Robert Willett said at the launch of project in September last that this project will transform the leisure, retail and entertainment industry in Doha while providing visitors a very attractive destination.

“QIB is proud to be part of this major project which will start next month, as it represents a new phase in the country’s economic evolution and will raise Qatar’s profile as a nation focused on innovation, excellence, and dynamic sustainable development,” said QIB Chairman Shaikh Jassim bin Hamad bin Jassim bin Jabr Al Thani said.

Along with IKEA, other brands from the Al-Futtaim Group have already confirmed as Doha Festival City’s anchor tenants, including ACE, Toys “R” Us, Marks & Spencer and Intersport.

Landmark Group’s brands such as Centrepoint, Max Fashion, Sports Authority, Fitness First, Home Centre and Iconic have also joined the retail mix. Robinson’s, the 153-year old department store and an integral piece of Singapore’s history, will be part of Doha Festival City offerings, which also include a fully serviced shopping centre, an indoor-outdoor entertainment park, automotive zone and two international hotels.

Doha Festival City is located 15km north of downtown Doha. With its strategic positioning, the mega complex is ideally equipped to meet the retail and entertainment needs of not only Qatar, but also the neighbouring GCC countries.

LUSAIL CITY

Covering over 35 square kilometers, accommodating up to 200,000 people and with an estimated budget of $5 billion, Lusail is one of the largest developments in the region. Situated in the North of Doha, this breathtaking city expansion will transform the existing raw tidal flats north of the Ritz-Carlton Hotel and dramatically change the economic and physical profile of Qatar for the better.

'The launch of Lusail is a major milestone in Qatar's development. It will generate significant economic diversification which in turn will create great opportunities for our nation and the wider region.'

Mr. Al Ansari, is proud of the effective blend of financial acumen, environmentally friendly development policies and social responsibility that Lusail Development represents. 'Lusail will be a unique, vibrant development, master-planned to complement and support other developments in Qatar and promote the sustained growth of our nation,' he said.

Lusail Development will include a large blue water lagoon with two marinas, major residential areas providing quality, high and low density housing to meet all needs, extensive commercial districts and mixed-use areas, comprehensive leisure and entertainment facilities including two golf courses and an entertainment district, naturally functional silt-free beaches as well as all the necessary social amenities such as mosques, parks, schools, shopping centres and medical centres.

Mr. Al Ansari explained the thinking behind the development. 'The whole development, by encouraging inbound investment and providing world class living and working environments, will stimulate the local economy. It has been a collaborative process and is a prime example of what can be achieved through effective partnerships across the private and public sectors.'

Contracts for the implementation of the necessary infrastructure have already been awarded and on site work on Lusail is due to start by early 2006. Conceived as a phased development, the Lusail project has been carefully planned around the concept of Districts in order to provide enhanced, state of the art living and working environments that celebrate traditional Qatari and Islamic architecture and foster community values.

The commercial districts have been designed to provide a comprehensive range of appropriate premises for major multi-nationals as well as local entrepreneurs and small to medium enterprises with an architectural character suitable for a new urban community such as pedestrian-friendly streets, parks, shaded areas, restaurants, shops and easy access to transport facilities.

Lusail Development has been conceptualized and planned down to the last detail by recognized leaders in their fields who are qualified in every aspect of the design, planning, construction and management of real estate developments. It will appeal to investors from Qatar and the international community who are interested in property opportunities that will, in addition to world-class design, benefit from best practice professional management that will ensure that the integrity, value and viability of their investment is maintained over the long term.

The first phase of the development, The Marina District, a high density mixed-use area comprising residential towers, attractive waterfront features and community amenities, will be open for sales enquiries immediately on the launch of Lusail.

The launch of the Lusail Development comes at a time when the property market in Qatar is experiencing a boom, with recent forecasts suggesting that billions of US dollars worth of investments will be channeled into the country over the next eight years.
