Barwa Real Estate Group is participating in Cityscape Qatar 2018, which will be held from 22nd to 25th April at Doha Convention and Exhibition Center. In its booth numbered (A20), the Group will showcase a selection of its real estate projects, most prominently Lusail Land project. Barwa will also display models of a number of other projects with diversified objectives, including the Affordable Housing Development for workers -Salwa Road and Dara project.
On this occasion, Mr. Salman Bin Mohammed Al Mohannadi, Chief Executive Officer of Barwa Real Estate Group expressed his pleasure at participating in Cityscape Qatar 2018, which attracts a large number of real estate developers from all over the world, offering an exceptional platform to present projects and strengthen relations with investors and experts in real estate development sector.
In this regard, Al Mohannadi stressed that the exhibition will present an opportunity to showcase a number of Barwa most prominent projects such as Lusail Land Project, which the Group intends to launch soon after obtaining the required approvals. Al-Mohannadi added that the project will be a surprise to the real estate market and an icon of Barwa Real Estate Projects. It will represent a living example of Barwa's new development philosophy. Based on creating a new architectural model for the Group that achieves the ideal balance between traditional and modern architecture and inspired by Qatari heritage, the new philosophy aims to develop integrated urban communities that provide all the requirements of the residents of these projects.
Lusail Land project is strategically located in Lusail city, the largest project in the Middle East and one of the largest in the world. Spanning over 3.5 million square meters, the project aims to create an integrated residential city to provide 15,000 housing units to accommodate more than 40,000 people with all service facilities and vast green spaces of up to one million square meters. The design is unique in Qatar, combining all architectural styles, including Qatari and Gulf houses as well as Arab and European styles in a harmonious aesthetic style that also takes into account the balance between building height and surrounding architecture by placing buildings in a contiguous line in height. The residential village (Al-Freij), which is the center of the project, will be built in the old style, such as the popular houses (Al Liwan). The project includes a diverse mix of villas and apartments of different sizes so as to meet different budgets.
Al-Mohannadi also added that Barwa is offering another project in Lusail City, which is Dara Project. Located in the northern part of Fox Hills Zone, the project consists of two phases; Dara A, whose construction is nearing completion, and Dara B-F which the Group plans to launch soon. Dara (A) has four residential buildings with a built-up area of 41,112 square meters consisting of five floors and 271 apartments of different sizes, in addition to an underground car parking. Dara (B-F) will provide more than 1820 different size apartments, underground car parking, shops and green spaces for residents and visitors.
Mr. Al-Mohannadi added that Barwa's booth at the exhibition will also include the Affordable Housing Development for workers -Salwa Road, which is the latest initiative launched by Barwa at the end of 2017 to meet the needs of the workers sector. The project aims to improve the workers housing standards and meet the needs of the local market for workers housing through developing a sustainable residential environment in terms of quality, security, and at the same time, providing all required services and facilities. The Group plans to finish the construction of the project in December this year, so as to be an applied model of the new development philosophy that balances quality and price.
Al-Mohannadi concluded by stressing that Barwa is keen to participate in Cityscape Qatar as the largest real estate exhibition in the country. It represents an opportunity to present Barwa projects and achievements, which include a variety of projects with different strategic objectives that contribute to achieving sustainable development and meeting the needs of the market at competitive prices to serve all segments of society.
