The Qatar Chamber (QC) will soon relocate its headquarters to Lusail City for which it has entered into a purchase agreement with Qatari Diar Real Estate Investment Company.
The agreement was Sunday signed by QC chairman Sheikh Khalifa bin Jassim al-Thani and Qatari Diar chief executive Abdulla bin Hamad al-Attiyah on the sidelines of the opening of Cityscape Qatar in the presence of HE the Minister of Commerce and Industry and Acting Minister of Finance Ali bin Ahmed al-Kuwari.
The new headquarters in the Commercial Boulevard in Lusail City coincides with the renaissance witnessed by Qatar and it will be properly equipped to suit all the activities, services, and events provided by the Chamber to the private sector.
"Lusail is the city of the future and the first smart city in the region owing to its state-of-the-art infrastructure and the investment opportunities it offers for businessmen," Sheikh Khalifa said.
The chamber’s current headquarters would be relocated to the new building after it is fully completed, he said, adding that its shifting to the Commercial Boulevard would further enhance the services to its members.
The Commercial Boulevard is one of the unique projects in Lusail City for its diversity as it consists of spacious buildings designed for multipurpose uses including retail, corporate offices, hotels, residential units, and convention centres.
Al-Attiyah said chamber’s shifting to Lusail City assumes significance as it is an important addition to the services provided by the city in line with Qatari Diar’s vision to make Lusail the economic capital city of the country.
The Commercial Boulevard is 1.3-km long and includes a group of luxurious multi-use residential units and shops designed in line with the highest global quality standards.
Located at the heart of Lusail City and starting from Al Khor road west to towers of Lusail Plaza east, the Commercial Boulevard is a dynamic and diverse commercial and residential destination.
The Commercial Boulevard is inspired by the Champs-Élysées avenue in France, with its towers surrounding the high gate, and car and pedestrian roads. It is a vibrant residential and commercial destination that encompasses a variety of shopping centres and entertainment facilities, giving residents and visitors unique lifestyle experiences.
Lusail City consists of several ministries and government departments along with significant multinational companies and institutions. Developed by Qatari Diar, it extends across an area of 38sqkm and can accommodate approximately 450,000 people.
