A new world-class hotel and conference/expo center has been proposed for the upcoming 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar.
The building will consist of two semicircular 30 story towers separated by a vaulted, climate controlled atrium over lush gardens with an open view to the ocean beyond. An adjacent structure will house a conference and exposition center as well as a recreational landscaped roof deck to be located above a multistory parking facility.
Luxuriously appointed rooms and suites will be designed to showcase the country’s rich cultural heritage and visual traditions. There will be a broad range of restaurants and high end retail commercial spaces.
A major environmental consultant with extensive marine experience in the area will be responsible for making sure that lessons learned on existing projects such as The Palm and The World in nearby Dubai are incorporated in the development of this particular site.
The projected cost has been estimated to be 1.6 billion US dollars including the supporting Infrastructure and excluding the interior construction and fit out of the restaurants and commercial spaces.
