The Qatar Mall is scheduled for opening in the third quarter of 2015.

The Mall will contain more than 400 shops, four areas of luxury international retail brands, a five-star luxurious hotel, high quality entertainment and a wide range of premier food halls, restaurants and coffee shops.
There will be a 19-screen cinema centre with more than 3,000 seats throughout, six VIP screens with the first laser screen in Qatar, and also a ten lane, ten pin bowling alley.
The Mall, which has 7,000 parking spaces, will cover a leasable area of 195,000m2 and when complete it will be the largest mall in Qatar, equalling an area of 50 FIFA football stadiums.
Connected directly to a metro station, the Mall is expected to attract 20mn visitors per year.
