1-bedroom properties are as the name suggests, those that have one allocated bedroom. They are sometimes referred to as 1 bhk, meaning 1 bedroom, a hall and a kitchen. It is the smallest residential unit that has a separate sleeping area. This type of property would suit a single person or couple that prefer to have a separate sleeping area to their living area. There are 1-bedroom apartments available that are advertised as having a separate office room too within the apartment which is great for some extra useful space. It is advisable to check the facilities being offered and also the layout of the apartment as some agents do not always list all the amenities fully. It is possible to find 1-bedroom properties in the form of an apartment in an apartment block or tower, a section of a villa, a townhouse portion or serviced apartment in a residential block or hotel.
The Marina District is a precinct in the district of Lusail: the new SMART city of Qatar. The area acts as the lively hub of the city overlooking the various marinas and provides waterfront residential, mixed-use, commercial and hotel space with large open areas leading to the waterfront boardwalk. The Marina District is serviced by a light-rail transit network (Lusail Tram) that will connect to the rest of Lusail to the Doha Metro via Lusail and Legtaifiya stations on the Red Line; all linked directly to underground car parking facilities.
The residential offerings of the Marina District come in both apartment form and villa style housing. Without a doubt, the most iconic landmark in the new city of Lusail and possibly the whole of Qatar, is the Katara Towers: a 38-level construction whose design was inspired by the seal of Qatar, hosting a luxury 5\* and 6\* hotel as well as branded residential apartments. The crossed swords of the country's seal have been architecturally translated into twin arched towers that rise gracefully from the podium level, while the landscaped gardens and palm trees reflect in the ocean frontage. There are many homes available to rent and buy in Marina District.
