Barwa Al Khor, a subsidiary of Barwa Real Estate, is on track to build a cosmopolitan area in Al Khor that will help transform the city into the next hotspot for tourism and luxury living in the region. To realise the outstanding potential of this culturally-rich suburban area, the QR35bn ‘Urjuan’ project was officially launched by the Prime Minister and Foreign Minister H E Sheikh Hamad bin Jassem bin Jabor Al Thani in November 2008. The residential community project will highlight a modem city that preserves the heritage of Al Khor. The project, which will rise within one of Qatar’s freehold areas, is being constructed to provide a unique environment where residents from a diverse range of global cultures may thrive. “The challenge for us is to build a cosmopolitan area — one which the Qatari nation can be proud of, and with the unhindered progress of the project, we believe that we are on track to achieve our goal,” said Engineer Youssef Ahmed Al Hammadi, CEO of Barwa Al Khor. “The growing popularity of the Al Khor area with its natural bay as a thriving destination for first-class residential properties gives us an outstanding opportunity to cater to the growing demand among Qatari nationals as well as expatriate residents. With sales now open for the massive project, we are very optimistic of the prospects within this massive real estate venture, which focuses not only on providing modern luxury facilities to tenants but also on underlining the rich cultural heritage and natural beauty of Al Khor.” Situated at the north of Al Khor, along the shore of Al Khor Bay on Qatar’s east coast, ‘Urjuan’ is set to become a self-sustained community. Designed to offer over 24,500 housing units, the project will consist of a beachfront luxury hotel and resort, well-appointed apartments, and townhouses and villas. In addition, the project will include extensive gardens and tourist facilities such as a world class hotel business club and resort hotel, waterfront residences with full leisure facilities and three marinas, an 18-hole golf course.
