Qatar plans new waterfront destination in West Bay

DOHA, May 10, 2018

Qatar's Public Works Authority Ashghal has announced plans to develop the West Bay North Beach area in Doha, creating a "major viable, connected, sustainable and attractive waterfront destination of choice".

The project is expected to complement the existing recreational, leisure and hospitality offering within the city and the wider Doha Municipality area, said a statement from Ashghal.

Accordingly, the authority is launching a competition to attract Qatar-registered companies as well as international consultants and architects to "bring fresh ideas to develop the waterfront."

The waterfront's development will include key connections through West Bay North from City Center Doha, existing hotels/residences, Doha Metro and the Corniche, it stated.

The participating companies are being encouraged "to be genuine, creative and innovative" in their approach, while at the same time "realistic and achievable."

The challenge for these companies from Ashghal is that the West Bay North Beach development must be operational within four years.

Under this contest, the participants must submit their 'Visioning master plan' options, each supported with a 3-minute 3D animated fly-through and computer-generated imagery, by June 11, said the statement from Ashghal.
And the winner will walk away with the QR300,000 ($81,848.4) cash prize, it added.-TradeArabia News Service
