DOHA | Musheireb Downtown Doha Development

Musheireb Downtown Doha Development


http://www.msheireb.com

Qatar Foundation has formed in March 2008 a new real estate company known as Dohaland Company aimed at redeveloping the old urban centre of Doha into a mixed-used district inspired by traditional Arabic & Islamic architecture. The Heart of Doha Project is an ambitious project of urban renewal that covers approximately 35 hectares in the center of the city. By advocating simple design principles such as respect for topography and ecology, thoughtful adaptation of regional norms and environmental strategies, and promotion of contemporaneity rooted in heritage, the Heart of Doha aspires to regenerate the historic core of the city and to act as a stimulus for future wider city renaissance. Its ultimate objective, however, is to propose a new paradigm of architecture and planning for the cities of the Arabian Gulf.

3 of these oldies that are being kept are:

1. Jassim Bin Mohammed House

This typical Qatari house from the 1870s is totally derelict and abandoned now. It was once inhabitated by the founder of modern Qatar, Jassim Bin Mohammed. It will be restored and will become part of the heritage buildings of the Heart of Doha project. A new birth for this forgotten historical jewel.

I'm not sure about the history of these buildings. They look good. It seems like they have already been renovated recently, and are kept as part of the Heart of Doha masterplan.

This is the largest urban regeneration project ever, it will also have the highest concentration of LEED certified buildings in one place.

Msheireb Downtown Doha gets first solar panels



Quote:
by CW Staff on Jul 31, 2013

The first photovoltaic (PV) solar panels at the $5.5bn (QAR 20bn) Msheireb Downtown Doha (MDD) project have been installed by renewable energy firm Innovations Unlimited ME.

Mounted on the roof, the modules will supply a portion of the electricity needs of the buildings within the first phase of the development.

As many as 2,072 PV panels and 37 inverters are being installed, feeding a total of 463.4 kWp (kilowatts at peak power) of electricity and will feed directly into the electrical grid of the development with the aim of significantly reducing the buildings' carbon emissions.

Eng. Abdulla Hassan Al-Mehshadi, CEO at Msheireb Properties said: “Adopting advanced clean technology such as solar energy in addition to traditional methods of climate management is a hallmark of the Msheireb project which will have one of the largest concentrations of LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certified buildings in the world on completion. Our partnership with Innovations Unlimited ME to install advanced solar power within Phase 1 of the development will help us move steadily towards achieving this goal.”

When the Downtown Doha project is complete, it will have 5,200 solar panels across a total of 8,400m² of onsite energy production in the form of both electricity and hot water.

Each year, it is estimated that the solar PV system will reduce total greenhouse gas emissions by 568 metric tonnes, which is equivalent to 241,000 litres of gasoline consumed.
