Cityscape Qatar 2012

Qatar is booming with Mega Project real estate development! Qatar has so much going on in the real estate industry right now that Cityscape, developer of the largest real estate events in the region, created a real estate event specifically for Qatar: Cityscape Qatar 2012 which took place last month on May 23-25. It was a groundbreaking event for Qatar and what follows are some excerpts from press releases given at the event which will give you a better idea of what exactly went on:

'The exhibition featured more than 100 companies, including some of the biggest Qatari developers and investors along with other industry leaders, such as Barwa Group, Ezdan Real Estate, Al Wa’ab City, the United Development Company, Al Khaliji bank and Commercial Bank. Cityscape Qatar also welcomed major regional and international project management specialists and service providers. The exhibition was visited by more than 7,000 visitors over the three days.

'The inaugural Qatar Real Estate Summit, taking place alongside the exhibition, was a phenomenal success, attended by more than 250 delegates. The conference hosted insightful discussions from industry leaders about the strategies that will ensure Qatar’s successful growth under the 2030 Vision.

'High visitor numbers were complimented by strong international media attendance. Barwa Real Estate Group showcased a major announcement, inaugurating their latest community-oriented residential property, the Lusail Golf Residential Development. The project will cover an area measuring 3,659,736 square meters. Thirty-one per cent of the Lusail Golf Residential Development is allocated to residential areas and 69% to sports facilities and green areas, including a Greg Norman designed golf course.

'Ezdan Real Estate Company unveiled three unique new projects. Ezdan City in the al Wakair area will be built on an area of 964,422 square meters and includes a full service-integral city containing 200 residential buildings, as well as other services and facilities, including schools, malls, and sport clubs. Ezdan will also develop a top end Boutique Hotel on a 10,000 square meter site in the al Ghrafa area; and a new commercial market in al Wakair, built on a land area of 24,679 square meters, and with building space of 25,126 square meters.

'Reflecting on the success of both the exhibition and the Summit, Rohan Marwaha, Managing Director for Cityscape Group at Informa, said: “The opportunities in Qatar for everyone connected with the real estate business are limitless and exhibitors have told us their experience here has been excellent. For those based in Doha, and for those coming to see it for the first time, everyone has gained incredibly useful insight into how Qatar is growing and the relationships made at Cityscape Qatar will truly help to shape the future development of this country under its 2030 Vision,” he said.'
