The neighborhood concept was first introduced in the 1920s by Clarence Perry. This paper adapts Clarence Perry's neighborhood concept and other neighborhood planning theories. It studies the land use dynamics of Fereej Abdul Aziz, one of downtown neighborhoods in Doha. The theory is reinterpreted to study three parameters: physical, mobility, and social aspects. The main objective is to empirically investigate the dynamics of existing land uses of downtown neighborhoods. The study aims at exploring types of land activities and their existing conditions in the study area. The findings aid in making land use guidelines for the downtown neighborhoods in Doha while considering preferences of the inhabitants. The study provides useful insights and efficient planning preference for land use changes in downtown neighborhoods that occur due to the rapid urban growth not only in Doha but also in other emerging cities.
