Place Vendôme, an upcoming multibillion-riyal mixed-use project featuring a mall with 600 retail outlets, five-star hotels, residences, an entertainment centre and other attractions, is expected to open in September 2021.
The project, which broke ground on March 17, 2014, will package one million sqm of retail, leisure, entertainment and luxury into a one-stop family destination by the seafront.
Located on the seafront of Lusail, Place Vendôme will feature a canal running through it directly from the sea, making for a gorgeous open plaza experience with cafes and restaurants overlooking the water.
It aims to become the new centre of attraction for regional and international residents and visitors seeking a combination of varied entertainment and retail choices in one place.
Place Vendôme is a project of United Developers, a group of four Qatari investors who partnered to align their expertise in retail, real estate, construction and contracting. United Developers envision Place Vendôme as a groundbreaking example of the entrepreneurship, vision and energy of Qatari commitment to the nation’s development.
Inspired by the architecture of Europe’s most romantic city, Place Vendôme will be reminiscent of the famous high-end shopping street in Paris, Rue de la Paix, of which Place Vendôme is the starting point.
The architecture is intended to radiate luxury and extravagance while conveying a touch of cultural and artistic feel, setting the tone for the entire shopping experience.
The project will host two five-star luxury hotels, Le Royal Meridien and Palais Vendôme, a luxury collection hotel, Le Royal Meridien Residences, a mall featuring up to 600 different retail outlets with an exclusively luxurious wing dedicated to top designer labels, and a central entertainment component showcasing constant attractions. It will have parking space for more than 6,500 vehicles.
The hotels and residences will be operated by Starwood Hotels and Resorts, part of Marriott International, who is set to deliver a luxurious and authentic experience that aligns with the Place Vendôme brand.
Place Vendôme will also have a cinema complex, a family entertainment centre, a dancing fountain and laser displays, showing that entertainment will be a major component of the project.
The retail component of the project is a carefully blended composition that caters for all tastes and preferences.
Covering the full spectrum of retail, the customer will be able to choose to browse the luxury flagship stores in the opulent precinct of the mall or sample the numerous high street fashion brands in the main mall.
There will be a wide range of convenience stores for everyday needs such as electronics stores, home and office furnishing, health and personal care, beauty, cosmetics, anchor stores, and hypermarket.
Place Vendôme is expected to become a new destination for the region, combining utmost convenience with an ocean of choices. Rising in parallel with the infrastructure in Lusail City, it will be served by new roads, public transportation, parks and marinas by the date of completion.
Place Vendôme adheres to 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 upon completion.
