Futuristic, environmental, and sustainable
Built according to Qatar Sustainability Assessment System (QSAS) standards,
Lusail City is the first green city to be constructed in Qatar. Lusail has already earned the distinction as “the city of the future.” Buoyed by its well-thought-out master plan, the city is predicted to become a vibrant and energetic hotspot that will thrust Qatar to the forefront of commerce, economic growth and the modern sustainable lifestyle in the Middle East.
The city will feature a light rail network, a water taxi transportation system, and a cycle and pedestrian network. The city itself was carefully designed and planned so that there will be connectivity and fast access to Doha, the AlKhor Highway, and the Hamad International Airport.
The developers of Lusail City understand the importance of integrating green spaces into the urban environment. That’s why around 30% of the land in Lusail is devoted to green, open spaces.
Watch out for these notable landmarks:
- Lusail Marina walkway – Located in the Marina District, this world-class walkway covers over 142,600 square meters and boasts of green spaces, picturesque landscapes, and dancing fountains. It also has a 4.2 km-long sea façade.
