* Retail, dining outlets and hotels reopen in accordance with Phase 2 lifting of restrictions
Msheireb Downtown Doha (MDD), the smart and most sustainable city district in the heart of Doha, reopened retail and dining outlets to visitors on July 1 in accordance with Phase 2 of the gradual lifting of restrictions announced by the Supreme Committee for Crisis Management.
Visitors can access 40 stores, restaurants and cafes at MDD in addition to restaurants and lounges in the city’s three hotels: Park Hyatt, Mandarin Oriental Hotel, Doha and Alwadi Hotel Doha MGallery. The food and beverage (F&B) outlets will now be able to provide dining-in options for all guests – at a decreased capacity to maintain safe distancing – as well as their normal takeaway and delivery services.
Ali al-Kuwari, acting CEO of Msheireb Properties, said: “We are delighted to announce the reopening of retail and dining outlets in our landmark city development, Msheireb Downtown Doha. We look forward to welcoming visitors again to enjoy our facilities, safely and comfortably, as all operating outlets will adhere to the precautionary and preventative measures outlined by the authorities.”
Msheireb Properties released several precautionary measures that must be followed, such as the wearing of masks at all times, maintaining social distance, following hygiene practices and complying with security in the area.
Additional measures to enter the stores and food and beverage outlets include presenting the Ehteraz app's 'Green' code and undergoing body temperature checks. To main safe distancing, many of the F&B outlets have redistributed their furniture to limit seating capacities. Customers will be encouraged to pay for services using credit cards rather than cash.
Msheireb Downtown Doha is the world’s first sustainable downtown regeneration project, reviving the old commercial heart of the city through a new architectural language. The environmentally conscious development blends traditional Qatari heritage and aesthetics with modern technology.
From design and planning to the delivery of infrastructure and transportation, through to improving overall lifestyle, the city aims to provide a place where it is enjoyable to live, work, shop, visit and spend time with family and friends.
