Qatar is devising a masterplan for a 10km2 Airport City project that will provide an interface between Doha and the new Hamad International Airport (HIA), reports Gulf Times.

The project will comprise four circular districts running parallel to Hamad's second runway, and connected by a so-called Green Spine.

The four districts will be Business District, Aviation Campus, Logistics District and Residential District. The first decade of the 30-year masterplan will see completion of the Business District and Aviation Campus by 2022.

Airport City is "targeted at optimised development of the transport hub of an airport and its surrounding airside and landside support functions," HIA said in a statement.

Aviation Campus will be traversed by a long podium, a symbolic entrance to the Airport City and the location of the headquarters of Qatar A irways and the Civil Aviation Authority.

Business District will be centred on a Terminal Complex that will contain a second terminal for the airport and a train station for Doha, with metro and long-distance rail links.

"The project demonstrates Qatar's tremendous potential and its unique approach to development, while also providing the flexibility required to support its inevitable growth," said HIA.
