Work has started on Qatar's Gewan Island

Work to construct Gewan Island is now underway.

The first parts of the island being built are the Crystal Residence's 15 mixed-use buildings and the climatised outdoor Crystal Walkway, which will act at the island's shopping area.

Set to be completed in 2022, Crystal Residence will have 586 apartments, 101 shopping, entertainment and dining outlets and leisure facilities.

The work is being completed by developers UDC.

Gewan Island will be connected to The Pearl-Qatar by a stunning cable bridge and will have a number of sustainability measures in place, including reducing pedestrian and cycling networks and a centralised waste-collection system.

When completed, the 400,000 sq m island will accommodate 3,500 residents and expects a similar number of daily visitors.
