The development will include high quality public spaces to create an iconic landmark area, which will reinvigorate the centre of Doha.
Gillespies is designing a series of urban squares, courtyard gardens and pedestrian routes that will unite the newly created Phase 1A to form a vibrant, cohesive environment for residents and visitors alike. The scheme will reference local culture and traditions whilst providing a contemporary vision for future development.
