Msheireb Downtown Doha is the world’s first sustainable downtown regeneration project, that will revive the old commercial district with a new architectural language that is modern, yet inspired by traditional Qatari heritage and architecture – its proportion, simplicity, space, light, layering, ornament and response to climate.
Utilising the latest in sustainable technologies, the development will adhere to the highest standards in green building. Msheireb Downtown Doha will become a new social and civic hub in the city centre – a place where it is enjoyable to live, work, shop, visit, and spend time with family and friends.
Msheireb Downtown Doha includes:
– QR20 billion project to redevelop, regenerate and conserve the historical downtown of Doha.
– 31-hectare mixed-use development situated in the centre of the city.
– Lively urban neighbourhood featuring premier office space, retail, leisure facilities, townhouses, upscale apartments, hotels, museums, civic services, and exciting cultural and entertainment venues.
– Cars and traditional services are strategically placed underground in several basement levels, ensuring a pedestrian – friendly atmosphere. The project will also be served by a dedicated tramway.
