Envisaged as the catalyst for a new central business district in Lusail city, the newly built Lusail Plaza Towers have already become a landmark in Doha as well as an unmissable background for the many celebrations of happy football supporters at FIFA World Cup 2022. Designed by Foster + Partners as part of a wider masterplan for Lusail City, which includes an 80,000-seat stadium that will host the upcoming final of the 2022 World Cup, Lusail Plaza Towers are soon to become the headquarters for Qatar National Bank, Qatar Central Bank, Qatar Investment Authority, and Qatari Diar.
This group of four imposing towers – located at the end of the commercial boulevard linking the new Lusail Stadium to the corniche – consists of two 70-storey skyscrapers and two 50-storey high-rises. The taller towers reach up to the incredible height of 310m, which ranks them among the highest buildings in Doha. Symmetrically arranged around a central plaza, each of the four towers features an oval plan that twists by 90 degrees as the building rises to give the impression of an asymmetric structure of unique shape and design. At the base, a network of podium buildings surrounds each tower providing support facilities with shops, cafes, an events and exhibition centre, gyms, banks, and restaurants, making Lusail City one of the key venues for World cup fans.
