Climate-controlled underground boulevard, water-front recreation, gardens and heritage landmarks will be some of the features of the master plans proposed for Al Khor and Wakrah municipalities. Urban Planning and Development Authority (UPDA) yesterday presented the plans, prepared by the consultants Surbana Urban Planning Group of Singapore, to a select audience of officials for discussion.
The plan allocates the proposed land use for different purposes.
The Al Khor includes Al Khor and Dhakhira developments, while the Wakrah plan includes Wakrah and the nearby Al Wukhair.
The plan envisages the use of the cities for the next 25 years and more*, UPDA director general Ali Abdullah al-Abdullah said.
Presenting the master plans, Jeff Greig, director of operations of Surbana, said in Wakrah the plan was for three separate developments: Wakrah municipality, the city and Al Wukhair town.
The plan had certain constraints. They included the presence of a large industrial area nearby (Mesaieed), sensitive coastal area, and presence of sand dunes, which had to be protected. “We have to be aware about the environment and the attractions these features hold for many peopleâ€*.
Besides, Wakrah is a corridor for many utilities. So, the structural plan is based on these aspects, which also took into consideration the possibility of a huge growth in population there because of the proximity to Doha.
They envisaged a population of 600,000 for Wakrah by 2032 and 170,000 in Al Khor, Greig said.
Al Wukhair, for instance, will be a garden sanctuary*. It will be a town with gardens and exclusive facilities and upmarket housing community. It will be a pedestrian-friendly town, distinguished by its grand landscaped features, Greig said.
The core of the city will be characterised by single family villas. But, there will also be provision for a new mixed-use residential site, boulevard, town square and high-end lifestyle facilities.
According to the plan, the existing farms will be retained. The recreation area will include a wildlife park and country club.
The planners described Wakrah as the Sparking South Coast City*, a place where everyone will want to go and live.
One goal is to establish it as a regional centre to complement the economic activities in the south, with a downtown having a range of commercial activities and integrated transport hubs.
The second goal is to make it a residential city of choiceâ€*. There will be a variety of housing choices for both nationals and expatriates, including flats and villas.
The goal is to make it a preferred waterfront destination. “It will be continuous public waterfront that offers a myriad of activities where public access will be ensuredâ€*.
Yet another goal of the project is to keep it as a city of heritage by re-establishing the city’s historic core with a distinctive sense of place and traditional Arabic values.
A big commercial area will be complemented by high density housing (flats), which will be connected to the waterfront. The existing commercial area will be retained.
The high-end residential area will have such facilities as a golf course. The Wakrah Festival Bay will include two hotels, festival venues and other facilities.
The Doha Expressway will connect the capital all the way to the central Grand Mosque in Wakrah and to the waterfront. A rapid transport rail station will be located near the mosque.
An underground pedestrian area will be separated from vehicular traffic. It will be a climate-controlled area with buildings on both sides, which will be used for residences and offices.
The waterfront will be divided into three parts: one for active recreation like motorised boating; second a commercial and cultural precinct with shops and restaurants, and a third a family park with small chalets and passive recreation facilities like walking. All the three precincts will be connected by cycle and pedestrian tracks.
Ali Abdullah al-Abdullah, and project manager Abdulrahman Jaber Surour, said the plans would be presented to the public through exhibitions in Doha, Al Khor and Wakrah. These will include short films and 3-D presentations.
“Everything would be very transparent and the public view would be taken into considerationâ€*, the officials said. After that, the final project will be presented.
Once the feedback is considered, the necessary regulation on height of buildings, green cover and similar aspects would be issued.
The presentation was also attended by Djoko Prihanto, senior vice president of Surbana, and UPDA officials Mohamed Ali Malik, Abdulrahman Sorour, Khalifa Abdulazza and Mona Abdulkader.

Changing face of township landscape



DOHA • The land use in Qatar's fast developing townships Al Wakra and Al Khor will be soon subjected to strict regulations. The land owners will have to strictly comply with the regulations of Urban Planning and Development Authority (UPDA) while developing their lands in future, if the preliminary outcome of UPDA's Al Khor and Al Wakra master plans are an indication.

The master plans of the model townships of Wakra and Khor recommend development of special zones in these townships for each segments. This include special zone for upmarket commercial complexes, exclusive zones for nationals, mixed residential areas for nationals and residents; and a special area for single resident families.

The master plan has conceptualized special zones for educational institutions, public offices, commercial complexes and marina.

Wakra's New Downtown regional centre has been divided into seven segments. They include 'Wakra Gateway', 'Wakra South Square', 'Wakra Festival Bay', 'Wakra Sands', 'Wakra Residence', 'Wakra College' and 'Wakra Trade Center'.


The Wakra Gateway' is an exclusive zone for major government and public offices. The 'South Square' will witness a mix of office complexes, residential apartments and middle and lower level retail outlets.

'The Festival Bay' will be an exciting area marked by at least two resort hotels, business investment hotels, maritime museum at water front, marina, arts and cultural centre. "Wakra Sands" will be dotted with family parks, recreation precincts, commercial and cultural complexes.

While 'Wakra Residence' is an area reserved for construction of multi-facility residential complexes,' Wakra College' is an exclusive zone reserved for educational institutions. 'Wakra Trade Center" is meant for developing malls and retail outlets.

'The goal is to develop both the townships as regional centre of Qatar and a residential city of choice. With the population expected to grow at an exponential rate in both these townships in the coming years, there is a need for a bringing in a zoning regulation and prioritization of implementation plans", said Ali Abdulla Al Abdulla, Director General, UPDA.

The master plan envisages Wakra to be developed as a preferred waterfront destinations and a vibrant city where people would be really want to visit and stay over.Considering the city's heritage history, a separate area will be developed as a heritage zone. Re-establishing Al Wakra city's historic core with distinctive sense of place and traditional architecture is another proposal.

Construction of quality villas, regional parks, waterfront public spaces are among other projects planned as part of the model township in both the cities.

The southern area of Al Khor will be developed as large commercial area with high-end residential zone connected to waterfront.

The west has been earmarked for middle income residential area. Within the Western Zone and on the eastern area, a special zone will be earmarked for housing complexes for single family residences. The Eastern area will be predominantly meant for single family areas.

The northern area of Wakra has been reserved for the high-end residential area complemented with a lot of upmarket games and recreations, including a golf course.

UPDA will exhibit a broad spectrum of the final outcome of the study areas of both Al Wakra and Al Khor at various places for enlightening the general public for their better understandings of the future development plans of the two areas.

Al Khor and Al Wakra Development Project is part of Qatar National Master Plan (QNMP) commissioned in response to the unprecedented urban development that necessitated development of long term development plans.

The master plan projected Wakra municipality's population to an estimated 600,000 in 20032. The population of Al Khor will grow up to 170,000 during the period.
