Msheireb Properties has showcased the regeneration of Doha’s commercial centre through its QR20bn Msheireb Downtown Doha (MDD) project. This project has been termed the world’s first sustainable regeneration of a major downtown area, Msheireb Downtown Doha aims to recapture Qatar’s heritage and traditional architectural techniques.
Msheireb Downtown Doha also represents a blueprint for the way urban centres can be redeveloped and conserved by combining traditional building principles with modern sustainable technologies and know-how.
“The Msheireb Downtown Doha is a tangible representation of how a city can preserve its architectural heritage and create a distinctive identity away from steel and glass skyscrapers,” said Eng. Abdullah Hassan Al-Mehshadi, CEO, Msheireb Properties.
The project will also host the region’s largest shaded open-air square, Al Baraha – a family destination with restaurants and cafés featuring events and large scale shows.
