Qatar is building a $45 billion megacity just north of Doha. Lusail is nearing completion and expected to be ready just in time for World Cup 2022. Qatar is spending $220 billion to host World Cup 2022, so it’s no surprise that the country managed to build a megacity practically overnight. Lusail has some very expensive and unique-looking skyscrapers. The Marina Twin towers skyscraper is a bizarre-looking office building that’s reminiscent of colorful LEGO blocks stacked on top of each other. The $605 million Katara Towers skyscraper project is made up of two curved towers that join together at the base to form a horseshoe shape. When it’s finished in 2022, the skyscraper will have two hotels and hundreds of high-end apartments. The Lusail Plaza Towers project isn’t as far along as the Katara Towers project will consist of two sets of twin towers built on four symmetrical linear podiums. The Hyundai Engineering and Construction Company was just awarded a $526 million contract to build two of the development’s four skyscrapers. World Cup 2022 will be held in eight different venues and five different host cities, but Lusail will be the site of both the opening ceremonies and the final match. Both events will be held at the $4 billion Lusail Iconic Stadium which is currently under construction. The 80,000 capacity stadium will be finished just in time for the World Cup, but after the tournament ends there will be further modifications. Keep watching to learn more about this amazing megacity that Qatar built in no time at all.
