The Al-Qurain housing project started in March 1986 and its last residential units were distributed in July 1996.

The residential units were built on an area which is approximately 30 square kilometres situated between Sabah Al-Salem suburb in the north, Al-Fintas in the south, Al-Fahaheel motorway in the east, and the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Fahd Bin Abdulaziz highway in the west.

Al-Qurain housing project is one of the greatest integrated housing projects carried out by the General Authority for Housing since 1974.

It includes 12,905 self-contained residential units to serve 100,000 residents. It is provided with special facilities and utilities such as mosques, clinics, supermarkets, public libraries, and so forth.

The project is supplied with a wide network of roads and a traffic system to facilitate movement and ensure security and safety.

In order to demonstrate its vital importance, the project was named after the historical name of Kuwait: “Al-Qurain”.
