The Pearl-Qatar occupies a prime location off the coast of Doha’s West Bay and boasts an assortment of residential accommodations for every taste and style. High-end retail and lavish hospitality, three world-class marinas and an impressive beachfront have made UDC’s flagship development the most glamorous address in the Middle East. The Island was the first development in Qatar to offer freehold and residential rights to international clients. World-class architecture, luxurious amenities and aesthetic nuances exude old-world charm and the best in modern living. The result is as much a destination as it is an experience, blending residential charm with the comfort of an exclusive resort. The Pearl-Qatar’s first phase and gateway to the Island houses the world’s longest waterfront luxury retail walkway, the 3.5 kilometer marina-front pedestrian boardwalk “La Croisette”, which is home to international hospitality brands and high-end boutiques. To date, The Pearl-Qatar has witnessed the grand openings of a multitude of internationally renowned outlets. These included brand names in fashion, hospitality, fine and casual dining, recreational and entertainment facilities. Development of The Pearl-Qatar’s 10 precincts is well underway, with the precincts of Porto Arabia, Qanat Quartier and Medina Centrale fully developed and largely occupied. Upon completion of the Island’s remaining seven precincts by 2018, approximately 19,000 residential dwellings will accommodate up to 50,000 residents.
