United Development Company (UDC), the master developer of The Pearl Island and Gewan Island, has recorded a significant increase in the number of vehicles visiting The Pearl Island in October 2023, reinforcing its status as a premier destination in Qatar.
The Pearl Island recorded the entry of approximately 1.76mn vehicles, marking a notable 6% increase from the previous month and a 4% increase compared to the same period last year. This surge in vehicle influx reflects the island’s sustained appeal and the growing interest of residents and visitors alike.
UDC remains committed to monitoring and tracking vehicle entry through specialised devices designed to observe traffic movement. The Pearl Island’s sustained popularity is attributed to its thriving population of 52,000, which has become the fastest-growing community in Doha.
Additionally, the island offers a wide array of retail, dining and recreational options, including an exciting lineup of events that take place throughout the year, attracting both residents and visitors alike.
UDC’s dedication to enriching the island’s offerings is manifested in the opening of major facilities namely Corinthia Yacht Club, United School International, Floresta Galleria Mall, and the United International Hospital scheduled to open early in 2024.
The Pearl Island has attracted more than 16mn vehicles since the beginning of 2023 and is forecast to surpass the figures achieved in 2022, largely attributed to the World Cup-related events and attractions.
