The foundation stone laying ceremony was attended by Director-General of QFFD H E Khalifa bin Jassim Al Kuwari and Minister of Interior of the Republic of Turkiye H E Suleyman Soylu.

This integrated city will provide comprehensive services and target 50,000 individuals. It will consist of 5,000 apartments and public facilities, including a mosque, a shopping centre, three schools, and a health centre.
