Entertainment City

Entertainment City Qatar
Master Plan Development
Doha, State of Qatar

Entertainment City Qatar is a 100-hectare development forming part of the 35 square kilometer Lusail mega scheme.

Edifice was appointed by Abu Dhabi Investment House to undertake the concept and master plan that would create an attractive and viable mixed-use project influenced by leisure and entertainment.

Responding to the challenge, Edifice amassed an international team of experts; architects, engineers, leisure, retail & feasibility and supporting specialist consultants.

The resulting tapestry of hospitality, retail, leisure, recreation and entertainment activities is blended with complimentary commercial and residential development, all of which follows the central theme of an ancient Arabic trader's seaport.

This theme fuses traditional Arabic culture with modern-day cultural influences, creating a destination where diverse regional and international cultures can flourish in parallel.

This master plan is envisaged to make Entertainment City Qatar a mega entertainment destination in Doha and a viable contributor to strong regional tourism growth.
