Msheireb Downtown Doha recognises the cultural and historic value of the existing spaces in the Msheireb area, and is reinterpreting its old forms to create a contemporary city.

The region’s largest covered public square, Barahat Msheireb will be a meeting point for visitors as well as residents; and will be active throughout the year with street entertainment as well as seasonal and community events. The square will be anchored by the Cultural Forum to the east and the world renowned Mandarin Oriental hotel to the west.

The Heritage quarter features four historic houses that will be restored and turned into museums, including a traditional adobe courtyard house known as the Mohammed bin Jassim House – originally the house of the son of the founder of modern Qatar.

Adjacent to the Heritage quarter is the prestigious Diwan Amiri quarter that lies opposite to Qatar’s seat of government, the Amiri Diwan. Serving as the key civic and administration area, it comprises the Diwan Annexe, Amiri Guard building and Qatar National Archive.

Towards the south lies the Sikkat Wadi Msheireb - the longest pedestrian street within the project, a medical centre, a community mosque, the Al Wadi Hotel-MGallery Collection and the five-star Park Hyatt hotel.

Along the west, the Sahat Al Nakheel features the main metro hub in Doha as well as a boutique business hotel and a breathtaking fountain set amidst retail offerings and performance areas, thereby providing all the elements required towards creating a vibrant lifestyle.
