The City Center Doha mall will have an additional 7,000 square meters of retail space under the second phase of an expansion plan, according to local media reports.
Sheikh Mohamed bin Faisal bin Qassim Al Thani, Vice Chairman of Aamal – the parent company of the facility – told The Peninsula that the redevelopment is set to complete by the end of 2018.
“The expansion of the mall will have about 5,000 to 7,000sqm of additional retail space in Qatar's oldest and largest shopping facility,” he was reported as saying on the sidelines of the company’s annual general meeting, according to the newspaper.
“The ongoing expansion and redevelopment works will be completed in different stages, which will end by 2018.”
The mall, which is now over 15 years old, will also be renovated and upgraded “to maintain a very high quality of standards”, Al Thani added.
Work has already begun on the façade of the building, where Aamal is creating more space for restaurants with outdoor seating arrangements, the company said.
