Construction of the Mall of Qatar is 70% complete and the project is set to open in 2016, according to the contractor.
Qatar-based UrbaCon Trading & Contracting, headed by Mohamed Moataz Al-Khayat, says it is making “great progress” in the construction of the mall.
Slated to open in the first quarter of 2016, the Mall of Qatar is set to serve an estimated 20 million customers a year, UrbaCon said in a statement.
With 400 shops, a luxury hotel, family entertainment centre and more than 80 restaurants and cafes, Mall of Qatar will be “one of the largest shopping malls in the world,” said UrbaCon.
Built at an estimated cost of up to $1 billion, the 4,176,000 square feet shopping center will be adjacent to a FIFA 2022 World Cup stadium, and will have a dedicated station on Doha’s new metro line.
The center will have more than 1,750,000 square feet of retail leasable space on three levels, along with underground and surface parking for 7,000 cars.
