Office Space in Qatar

Office Space in Qatar           Qatar-Resized

With an economy largely based on oil and natural gas, the State of Qatar is located in the Persian Gulf and is seen as one of the major financial centres of the Middle East. Currently the government is looking to reduce its dependence on the oil sector and has taken steps to move into the tourism industry which has resulted in an increase in the country’s population. This factor along with Qatar’s selection to host the 2022 FIFA World Cup has led to a considerable rise in real estate prices in the country especially in the capital city, Doha.

Much of the office space in the capital’s central business district (CBD) is occupied by the public sector. However with the decrease in oil prices, demand for office space in the area has also decreased. Companies in the private sector are mostly looking to set up in smaller spaces (preferably around 3000 square feet) and in this regard serviced office space in Doha offers an ideal solution.

Normally situated in Grade A buildings in the CBD, these managed facilities are conveniently close to major roads, five-star hotels, luxury apartments, shopping malls and tourist attractions. A range of office sizes are available with multiple amenities and services including conference rooms, shared workspaces, executive lounges, broadband internet, administration support and VOIP telephony.

Over 3 million square feet of brand new office space is expected to be added in the CBD over the next 18 months which will further increase the supply and drive rentals down.

 Doha City-ResizedDoha Area Information

The West Bay is considered as the key business district in Doha. Home to numerous modern buildings and skyscrapers, important government offices are located in this area including the Ministry of Economy and Commerce, Ministry of Justice and the Qatar International Exhibition Centre. The Qatar Financial Centre has especially been setup here to facilitate international organizations in the country. Well served by major roads, the area also hosts several world-class hotels, shopping malls, banks and fine dining restaurants.

Aside from the West Bay, the Downtown area also offers good options for office space. Close to the international airport, the district will be connected to the Doha Light Rail in 2017 providing commuters with access to an excellent public transport system. In addition to multinational corporations, many local companies are also setup in this area.

Serviced office space in Doha can range from QAR 5000- QAR 10,000 (per person per month) and also depends on the location and services clients are looking to sign up for. These rates usually cover internet connections, conference rooms, parking facilities, executive lounges and access to videoconferencing studios. Co-working and virtual office services are also available but these options cannot be used to register businesses or companies in the country.
