Consumers and retailers will experience a wonderful collection of fashion, restaurants and community services,” said Shem Krey, deputy managing director at the center. “After carefully reviewing the competitive shopping centre landscape in Doha, we selected McARTHUR + COMPANY due to the depth of their team and their success rate of delivering successful large format shopping centres”
