Barwa Real Estate Group vice-chairman and managing director Issa bin Mohamed al-Mohannadi has said the company is participating in the eighth edition of Cityscape Qatar 2019 with a pavilion displaying several recently constructed distinctive projects that serve the residential, labour and industrial sectors as well as a new project model under study aimed at building houses for citizens.
In a statement on the sidelines of Cityscape, al-Mohannadi said the project includes the construction of houses inspired by the local culture and environment. If implemented, it will be done in co-ordination with the government and Qatar Development Bank.
Al-Mohannadi explained that all of Barwa’s projects, such as Al Baraha, warehouses and workshops, are aimed at enhancing the state’s infrastructure and meeting market requirements in terms of stores and workshops.
He added that Barwa’s participation in Cityscape is meant to highlight its new projects, especially those that have come as a result of the partnership between Barwa and the state and provide the services required by the state in terms of infrastructure projects. These include the Madinat Mawater project, which meets the need for an integrated car city and includes all the services related to vehicles, and the Affordable Housing Development for Labourers project, which seeks to provide accommodation in accordance with international standards for workers. Regarding the Dara A project in Lusail City, al-Mohannadi said that due to the decrease in prices in the residential sector in the recent period, Barwa is currently reviewing the previous prices of the project and will announce new prices for units in the project by the end of this year.
As for new projects in the future, al-Mohannadi said that they are studying the market to meet its needs, pointing out that there are ideas for various projects in different sectors and that designs have already been prepared for them, which will be announced at the right time.
Development manager of the Affordable Housing Development for Labourers project, Abdullah Saleh Hajji, said the project involves a residential complex for labourers on Salwa Road, noting that it will be constructed on a land area of 994,567sqm. The project covers the construction of 3,170 housing units, each comprising eight bedrooms with eight toilets and one kitchen.
In addition, it will include shops and mosques with projected total built-up area of 730,728sqm.
Hajji added that the services available will include shops and four commercial centres, each including 23 stores, in addition to service buildings/facilities such as bus stops and a government services complex. The complex will accommodate about 100,000 workers, he added.
Meanwhile, the project manager of Madinat Mawater, Fahad al-Ghorab al-Marri said the city is designed to cover the state’s needs for the automobile market.
Al-Marri noted that the first and second phases of the city have been opened. The first phase has about 60 showrooms and the second phase 59, adding that they are in the process of starting the construction of the third phase, which will include about 120 showrooms to serve cars, in addition to a maintenance centre on 60,000sqm for all types of cars.
Al-Marri also mentioned that Madinat Mawater will include a driving school, a commercial car parts complex, a technical inspection station, a licence plate installation workshop and a petrol station.
