The under-construction Al Mirqab Mall is set to change the face of Nasser Street, when it opens next year.

Located in one of the busiest suburbs, Al Mirqab Mall will transform Al Sadd’s commercial centre, Nasser Street into a thriving business hub.

Best known for its small shops and eateries,in recent years, the district has been undergoing a facelift, as small businesses have been rebuilt and remodelled.

Operated by Qatar-based Al Mana, the mall has 70,000m² of gross leasable area, with nearly 40,000m² for retail, eateries, entertainment, a cinema, and a parking for 1,500 vehicles.

Offices and medical clinics will take up the remaining 31,000m² of space over three floors above the shopping area.

While construction is ongoing inside the mall ahead of tenants moving in to start fit-out, the building’s façade is complete.

The mall design combines modern glass panels with traditional arches, crowned by a large, ornate dome that sits atop the main door of the complex.

Included in over 120 confirmed brands – among which are Reiss, Zara and Cath Kidston – UK-based music and entertainment chain HMV will also open a branch in the mall.

Carrefour supermarket will be complemented by fast food chains, including McDonalds and Papa Johns, while Paul Cafe, and Casper & Gambini will be among the list of eateries represented in the new development.

A movie theatre run by Flik Cinema is also set to open, while Al Mirqab mall will feature a new branch of the children’s entertainment brand, Funderdome.

DTZ Qatar announced it had been hired to lease out the office space for the mall.
