Barwa Real Estate’s QR2bn Baraha Motor City project in the Industrial Area will house some 40,000 labourers and 15,000 engineers with all community facilities. Ahmad Abdulla Al Abdulla, Deputy Group CEO of Barwa Real Estate, said the large housing facility for lowly-skilled workers will be part of the two million square metres area of Baraha Motor City, a self-sustained integrated community for motorists seeking a broad range of automotive related services. The workers accommodation facility is part of the four major projects Barwa Real Estate will showcase in the upcoming CityScape Qatar, the global real estate exhibition to be held at Doha Exhibition Centre on May 23 to May 25. Al Abdulla said Barwa’s other major projects include Barwa City, Barwa Commercial Avenue and the latest would be announced during the exhibition. The housing project for labourers will be implemented in four phases initially housing 20,000 people, followed by another 20,000 and finally 15,000 accommodation to engineers. Workers will be provided with community facilities such as a medical centre, banking, a police station, petrol station, fire station and mosque. The administration zone will house government offices such as a traffic department for car registrations and property and facilities management. Seen as another milestone for Barwa in serving the community, Baraha Motor City will provide the ultimate automotive solution. The mega project will be added to Barwa’s sizeable portfolio of developments in Qatar - from housing to retail, from fitness centres to hospitals and schools, from hospitality to offices and financial business centres. Planned on a vast scale, Baraha Motor City will provide the industry with a destination for anyone wishing to purchase private or commercial vehicles, vehicle-related products and to facilitate auxiliary car related activities and the needs of consumers. The main hub of the city will provide retail and merchandising areas, commercial offices for trading, insurance and logistics, car showrooms and light food and beverage outlets. It will be the place where people working in and visiting the area will be able to socialise, eat, conduct meetings and shop for cars or related motoring services. In addition, there will be an area for car auctions, both private and public, and for workshops offering repairs and garage services as well as vehicle technical inspections. Driving schools and test track zone are also planned along with heavy commercial vehicles and truck parking zones. The Peninsula
