The region’s leading shopping and leisure destinations – the Mall of Qatar - is scheduled to open its doors on October 29, 2016. It promises to become “The Place To Be” for local residents and visitors alike. An international team of consultants are involved in the design and execution of Mall of Qatar.

ILQ did a video tour of the upcoming shopping destination and we are super excited to share it with you.

Conveniently located at the intersection of Al Rayyan Highway and Celebration Road, the project is adjacent to the popular Al Rayyan Sports Club and a future FIFA 2022 World Cup Stadium. A dedicated Metro Station integrated into the mall, as part of Doha’s new transportation system, will give all of Doha and surrounding regions unrivalled access to the Mall of Qatar.

It will have over 1,750,000 square feet of retail leasable space spanning across 3 levels. In addition, the mall will have underground and surface parking for 7,000 cars.

When complete, Mall of Qatar, which is the equivalent size of 50 football pitches with over 500 stores, will be the nation’s largest mall. It will offer visitors a wide selection of major international brands, over 100 food and beverage outlets and fine dining options, a 5 star luxury hotel and an impressive array of unique entertainment experiences, including the largest IMAX Laser 3D projection system in the world.

The mall’s 19-screen Cinemacity complex will include 7 VIP screens on 3 levels, a 10 lane bowling alley and in-theatre gourmet food service. The Family Entertainment Complex will offer 16,500 sq.m. of multilevel entertainment for children and adults, featuring KidzMondo, an impressive scaled-down miniature city, providing role playing real life experiences for children.

The Mall will also feature mall-wide live entertainment and the first professional live theatre in a mall in the world with 360 degree acts and shows performed on the multi-lift rotating Festival Stage with theatrical sound and lighting. In a eight storey high central glassed dome, the theater comes complete with its own resident performance troupe and animated water features.
