Unique Upcoming Malls In Qatar

Al Hazm is one of the most anticipated Malls in Qatar

Over the next two years, there will be over 10 new malls in Qatar. But we’re not talking about your average malls. Check them out below.

There are already around 15 malls in Qatar, but everywhere you look, it seems like a new one is popping up.

The thing about malls in Qatar is that the hot weather and family-oriented social atmosphere makes malls the perfect outing destination, no matter what you’re buying or doing. If you go to the market, you’d need to step out into the heat between shops, but at the mall you can stroll around, shop, eat and do much more in a controlled climate.

For a modest population of just over 2 million people, there are quite too many malls in the country, which is why they need to stand out and offer something unique. That is exactly what these new malls are doing.

Al Hazm

Al Hazm MallProbably one of the most anticipated malls in the world because of its elegant, antique design, Al Hazm mall is a QR 3 billion project that is scheduled to open shortly.

This shopping plaza is probably one of the most luxurious in the world. It was built to resemble the Milan’s 19th-century Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II in design, it is surrounded by 200-year-old trees that were imported from Sicily and special marble floors that keep cool during the summer heat
