KEO was the Architect and Engineer of Record for Phase 1, Porto Arabia. The project included a 31 storey residential tower, 420 town houses, and 75,000 square meters of high-end retail space on a Riviera-like boardwalk setting around a 400 boat slip marina. This, the largest of the Pearl-Qatar’s marinas, captures the vibrant sophistication of the Riviera. Colorful, refined and conducive to the highest standards of living, Porto Arabia is a continental marina with a heart which beats to the rhythm of Arabia.
Beautiful apartments, penthouses and elegant town homes embrace a promenade akin to those found in the South of France. La Croisette is a 2.8 kilometer pedestrian area, which resonates with the sights and sounds of modern marina life. From fine dining to café culture, elegant retail showrooms to lively street markets, La Croisette is a dramatic concourse of spectacular quality. Distinct districts within Porto Arabia offer investors a choice of locations, from a lively piazza, a festive peninsula or a unique, secluded ” island-within-an-island” getaway.
