Msheireb Downtown Doha is a regeneration initiative that aims to unite the Doha of yesterday with the vision of Doha tomorrow, restoring old ways of life, the traditional sense of community, and a strong sense of culture and heritage. It is no coincidence that the site of the project dates back to Doha’s earliest foundation.
Msheireb will facilitate the regeneration of the inner city to revive the old commercial centre and recreate the traditional lifestyle based on community, commerce, and a sense of shared destiny. The project will link the Amiri Diwan, Corniche and Souk Waqif, and preserve and protect key historical sites within the district.
Heritage sites being restored within Msheireb include:
- Radwani house
- Company House – first offices for Shell
- Al-Jalmood House
- Mohamed bin Jassim House – once home to the son of the founder of modern Qatar.
