Published on 21/10/2014

One of the most exciting retail developments in Middle East construction at the moment is the Mall of Qatar, designed by Chapman Taylor.  Set to be Qatar’s first super regional shopping centre, it is built within the Al Rayyan Village, a new mega-development aimed at high net worth individuals in southern Doha, Qatar.  The development is intended to be a world-class retail, sports and entertainment destination and has a total build area of 388,000m2

Situated adjacent to a FIFA 2022 World Cup stadium, with a dedicated station on Doha’s new metro line, Mall of Qatar will have over 1,750,000 square feet of retail leasable space on 3 levels in addition to underground and surface parking for 7,000 cars.  The 400 shops from luxury to the world’s leading powerhouse brands and an exciting array of food, beverage and entertainment will make this the premier destination in Qatar.

According to the World Travel and Tourism Council, it is estimated that by 2021, international tourist arrivals in Qatar are forecast to reach over 2 million, and they are expected to spend an additional QR 3.7 billion (just over $1 Billion) in Qatar during their stay.  To cope with the increase in tourism that the Mall of Qatar will bring to the country, a five-star fashion-themed hotel is also being developed.
