Thus, it will be an integrated and sustainable residential city that revives the spirit of the past in a modern style.
As per the preliminary studies, the project is located in the northern part of Lusail City and extends over an area of more than 3,476,000 square meters and is surrounded by a number of roads and tram stations. The project will contain villas with a variety of views, amounting to 1,700 villas, along with residential apartments.

His Excellency emphasized that the idea of the project's design will take the form of a group of Furjan, which will provide it with real social dimensions, reflecting the very essence of the word Freej, which mirrors family bonding, social solidarity, and the children gathering place, in a way that confirms and preserves the Qatari culture depicted in the imagination and minds of Qatari society.
His Excellency indicated that the project will also pay attention to provide all amenities and services so that they will be at close vicinity of its components, and independently for each Freej, along with outlining perceptions to create valleys, rest areas and open spaces to form the landmarks of the Freej.

His Excellency pointed out that the project's location in the modern, promising and smart city of Lusail is an important part of the success of its objectives, especially that its proximity to the waterfront and the recreational and sports facilities in Lusail City will add more aesthetic elements to the project.
Construction model linked to heritage and mingled with modernity

In addition, car parking will be developed in a modern and different way in order to promote the Basement Parking concept that many residents of houses or villas may not be accustomed to, as well as designing buildings similar to what the Qatari citizen is accustomed to while adding all the touches of the lifestyle of old Freej.
