Prosperity is on the horizon with the iconic 2022 building
The iconic 2022 building in the Aspire Zone is the latest architectural masterpiece in the country, with its aesthetically striking design and its one-of-a-kind appeal. As inaugurated by HE the Prime Minister and Minister of Interior Sheikh Abdullah bin Nasser bin Khalifa al-Thani, the new building is the first of its kind across the globe. The year 2022 is significant to Qatar as well as it will host the FIFA World Cup that year.
Measuring 60,000sq m, the mixed use building houses an integrated health club, cafes, administrative offices, meeting rooms, restaurants, and a lecture theatre spread out across four wings of five floors each. As it is directly connected to Khalifa International Stadium, it also offers approximately 600 parking spaces—enough for visitors the world over.
Under the supervision of Qatari architect Ibrahim Mohamed Jaidah, the unique structure is the work of Sheikh Nasser bin Hamad bin Nasser al-Thani, in partnership with Antonio Capone, founder of P&C Associates (Milan).
“December 2 marks a great day in Qatar’s history as it was the day our beloved country won the hosting rights of the World Cup. Qatar was able to dazzle the whole world by winning the bid and proving its worth through this historic victory. During my studies abroad, I was following Sepp Blatter (the then FIFA chief) as he pulled out Qatar’s name from the envelope in 2010. I then began to think about establishing a project that will be a legacy for the State and future generations. The idea was thus born and today, thanks to God, we can see it on the ground,” said Sheikh Nasser. “In this regard, I would like to thank His Highness the Amir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad al-Thani and our wise government for supporting the private sector, which motivates us to come up with ideas that make Qatar an oasis of creativity.”
“So, when we presented such an opportunity, we came across the idea of the 2022 building project. It is a unique project as it complements the general plan of Aspire Zone. We congratulate Sheikh Nasser bin Hamad bin Nasser al-Thani on this project and wish him all the best,” said Mohamed Khalifa al-Suwaidi, CEO of Aspire Zone Foundation (AZF).
According to Ahmed al-Rayyan, general manager of Al Bandary Engineering, “The facilities provided have helped complete the project on time and we are very proud of this historic building, whose legacy will remain for generations.”
Moreover, Luigi Laura from Laura International business development company said, “We were briefed on the adequacy of the Qatari economy and the provision of investment opportunities for foreign investors. This gives a strong push forward and makes Qatar a gateway for businessmen and investors.”
