Qatar is investing over $300 billion in infrastructure megaprojects across the country before the 2022 FIFA World Cup. A few of the projects, however, will not be finished until after the World Cup due to troubles from the Qatari government at securing loans.
The megaprojects examined in this video are the following: Lusail City development including the Katara Hotel, the Amphibious 1000 Resort, the Silver Pearl Hotel, the Doha Metro, Hamad International Airport, and New Port Project.

Amphibious 1000 is a 500 million dollar project by Giancarlo Zema Design Group (GZDG) for the construction of a semi-submerged island in the protected area off the coast of Qatar. At the futuristic resort, you can stay at one of 80 "Jelly-Fish" floating suites. The suites can accommodate up to six people comfortably, with 5 floors connected by a spiral staircase. On the lower level, 3 meters below sea level, you can enjoy a submersed panoramic room, overlooking the sea.
The resort features 20-meter yachts, equipped with hydrogen engine sand underwater viewing globes. The lowest level, at 3.00meters (9.8 ft) below sea level, guests can enjoy their very own private aquarium lounge.

The Silver Pearl Hotel A deluxe hotel resembling two half moons on the horizon will be built a mile off the coast of Doha in Qatar at a cost of just over Β£1billion.
The Silver Pearl Hotel, designed by New York-based firm M. Castedo Architects, is set to have more than 1000 rooms and an adjoining expo center, has been scheduled for completion ahead of the 2022 FIFA World Cup. But most stunning will be its stainless steel and glass exterior, which will reflect in the ocean to sparkle like a pearl at night.

Hamad International Airport's renovation involves the expansion of Hamad international airport passenger terminal located at Doha, Qatar. The project includes annual capacity from 24 million to 53 million passengers per year. Meinhardt is providing engineering design services for 3-storey terminal building expansion, concourse D&E, expansion of baggage handling, terminal metro station, substructure for future connection to satellite terminal, underground services tunnel, and utilities.

The Doha Metro is a rapid transit system currently under construction in Doha, Qatar's capital city, that is scheduled to become operational by the end of 2018. It will have four lines with an approximate overall length of 300 km and 100 stations. It will be an integral component of the larger Qatar Rail network, which will include a long-distance rail for passengers and freight, linking Qatar to the GCC, and the Lusail LRT. Capable of reaching 100km/h, the Doha Metro will be one of the fastest driverless trains in the world.
