(MENAFN – The Peninsula) Doha: Place Vendôme, a forthcoming multi-billion-riyal multipurpose project that includes a shopping center with 600 stores, five-star hotels, residences, an entertainment center and other attractions, is expected to open in September 2021.
The project, launched on March 17, 2014, will pack one million square meters of retail, leisure, entertainment and luxury stores in a unique family destination on the waterfront.
Located on the promenade of Lusail, Place Vendôme will feature a canal that crosses it directly from the sea, giving a wonderful experience of open square with cafes and restaurants overlooking the water.
It aims to become the new center of attraction for regional and international residents and visitors looking for a combination of various entertainment and retail options in one place.
Place Vendôme is a project by United Developers, a group of four Qatari investors who have collaborated to align their skills in the retail, real estate, construction and contract sectors. United Developers consider Place Vendôme as a revolutionary example of entrepreneurship, vision and energy of Qatar’s commitment to the development of the nation.
Inspired by the architecture of the most romantic city in Europe, Place Vendôme will remember the famous high-end shopping street of Paris, Rue de la Paix, of which Place Vendôme is the starting point.
The architecture aims to radiate luxury and extravagance while transmitting a touch of cultural and artistic atmosphere, setting the tone for the entire shopping experience.
The project will house two five-star luxury hotels, Le Royal Meridien and Palais Vendôme, a luxury collection hotel, Le Royal Meridien Residences, a shopping center with up to 600 different outlets with an exclusively luxurious wing dedicated to the labels of the top designers, and a central entertainment component showcasing constant attractions. It will have parking space for over 6,500 vehicles.
The hotels and residences will be managed by Starwood Hotels and Resorts, part of Marriott International, which will offer a luxurious and authentic experience that aligns with the Place Vendôme brand.
Place Vendôme will also have a cinema complex, a family entertainment center, a dancing fountain and laser screens, demonstrating that entertainment will be an important component of the project.
The commercial component of the project is a carefully mixed composition that satisfies all tastes and preferences.
Covering the entire retail range, the customer will be able to choose to browse the luxury single-brand stores in the luxury mall district or try the many high-street fashion brands in the main mall.
There will be a wide range of convenience stores for daily needs such as electronics stores, home and office furnishings, personal health and care, beauty, cosmetics, anchor stores and hypermarkets.
Place Vendôme should become a new destination for the region, combining maximum practicality with an ocean of choices. Rising parallel to the infrastructure of Lusail City, by the completion date it will be served by new roads, public transport, parks and marinas.
Place Vendôme joins and supports the pillars of Qatar National Vision 2030. The project reflects United Developers’ commitment to Qatar’s economic diversification as well as human and social development through the opportunities and jobs that the project will create during construction and completion.
