The Pearl-Qatar: Luxury living taken to new heights

Article - September 27, 2011
UDC’s flagship development offers a Mediterranean lifestyle
The Pearl-Qatar is achieving global recognition as one of the Middle East’s most prestigious locations, offering a Mediterranean lifestyle while maintaining local flavor.

“Our goal was to achieve a resort island city that is home to a sophisticated, multicultural blend of nationalities,” says Kirk Martin, executive vice president of United Fashion Company (UFC), a subsidiary of UDC.

At The Pearl-Qatar, the shopping and dining experience is one of a kind. UFC has attracted major international brands. World-class boutiques are lining one of the world’s longest waterfronts, comprising the 2.2-mile Porto Arabia Boardwalk and Viva Bahriya’s 1.2-mile beach.

Seventy international food, fashion, and retail outlets are already open at Porto Arabia. Three award-winning marinas further add unique value to the Island’s lifestyle. Ronautica Middle East (RME), another subsidiary of UDC, manages the Island’s marinas and offers a variety of maritime services.

The yacht facilities at The Pearl-Qatar are the largest and most modern in the region, positioning the Island as the leisure boating hub. “Also non-residents can moor their boat, spend the day shopping and dining, or spend a weekend in one of the hotels,” says Jaumé Marco, RME’s general manager.

The Island’s IT infrastructure offers complete connectivity, as well as a host of home automation capabilities enhancing convenience and security. Residents will be able to control all functions of their home from abroad. A ‘smart card’ will allow them to perform various transactions on the Island without the need for cash or credit cards.

“From inception, our focus has been to make The Pearl-Qatar truly a ‘smart’ Island,” says Mr. Sholy. “We have created state-of-the-art infrastructure and solutions delivering the quality of service and standard of living residents and businesses on The Pearl-Qatar deserve – for this and future generations.” 

Groundbreaking central cooling and waste disposal systems provide a pristine environment and reduce ecological impact. The Pearl-Qatar is a city in its own right, which upon completion will offer every practical necessity, from schools to health clinics. Entertainment is guaranteed with a variety of water sports, a multiplex cinema, art houses, music, and social clubs to name a few.
