United Development Company (UDC) has selected Parsons to provide master planning and infrastructure consultancy services for the development of Floresta Gardens, which will have a distinctive architectural feature at The Pearl-Qatar.
UDC is one of the leading Qatari public shareholding companies in Qatar and the master developer of The Pearl-Qatar and Gewan Islands.
UDC president and CEO Ibrahim Jassim al-Othman and Parsons senior vice president and MEA Built Environment Division manager Gregg A Welch co-signed the contract on Wednesday at the Oyster building, The Pearl-Qatar in the presence of senior officials from both companies.
Parsons scope of services includes the design of masterplan, infrastructure, landscape, public realm, and retail centre, as well as the schematic design of the precinct’s 10 mid-rise residential towers and utilities tie-in points for three gated villas.
Al-Othman said, “The distinguished Floresta Gardens’ development will play an important role in UDC’s future growth plans for The Pearl-Qatar. Through inspired designs and high-quality living spaces, we are confident that the precinct will be a highly-sought after investment opportunity for both local and external investors. This distinctive project reflects UDC’s commitment to offer integrated real estate projects that boost Qatar’s position as an attractive lifestyle destination.”
Welch also said, “Our team is excited to create a high-quality residential community that offers a diverse lifestyle, with stunning waterfront and public realm views.”
UDC said Floresta Gardens will offer a variety of community living options, characterised by Haussmannian-style architecture. The precinct, which will be home to 5,000 residents, consists of 145,967sq m of developable land and a gross floor area of 267,471sq m.
The project will be home to 10 mid-rise residential towers and 114 villas within three gated villa compounds and a 2,452sq m retail centre. The tenders for the infrastructure works and the construction works of the retail centre in the Floresta Gardens will be shared with the contractors in March 2019, UDC added.
UDC is one of the foremost luxury real estate development companies in Qatar with an expanding portfolio of projects, which includes real estate development, property management, and infrastructure and utilities.
The company focuses on identifying and investing in long-term projects that contribute significantly to Qatar’s growth and development. The Pearl-Qatar Island remains one of the iconic mixed-use urban development projects developed by UDC.
