Msheireb Downtown Doha will transform the centre of the capital city, recreating a way of living that is rooted in qatari culture.
Msheireb 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, Msheireb will adhere to the highest standards in green building. The strategic objective of the Msheireb project is to reverse the pattern of development in Doha, which has tended towards isolated land use, reliance on car
transportation and energy hungry structures. 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.
