Bashar Masri is developing the first new stand-alone Palestinian city 25 kilometers north of Jerusalem and 9 kilometers north of Ramallah in the West Bank on 6300 dunams (1556 acres) for 40,000 people with financial support from the Qatari investment authority and assistance from The Portland Trust. The first phase with 5000 homes along with a commercial city center, parks, schools and other public facilities will be available for occupancy in 2014. The eventual $1.5 billion new city has a host of start up problems including what should be built when and at what price along with infrastructure issues.
