Mall of Qatar welcomes 100,000 visitors during its launch

A new 500,000 sqm shopping center in Doha, called the Mall of Qatar, has attracted no less than 100,000 inquisitive visitors during its soft launch earlier this week.

Still in fit-out phase

Located in Qatar's capital,  the mall will house more than 500 shops, including 100 eateries. Alongside well-known brands like Adidas, Abercrombie & Fitch, Escada and Gant, the shopping center will have a resident troupe, performing shows all-year round on a 360° custom stage. 

 

Nevertheless, work is still ongoing, because 92 % is still in the fit-out phase. "I'm pleased to see the Mall of Qatar running successfully after lots of great efforts and work from varied parties to make it happen," said Moataz al-Khayyat, CEO of UrbaCon, the construction company.
