Msheireb Downtown Doha secures Guinness World Record

Msheireb Downtown Doha (MDD) achieved a Guinness World Records title for the ‘Largest Underground Car Park,’ which uses an intelligent system and holds a capacity of 10,017 spaces across six levels.

The design of MDD places car parking and building services underground, which has significantly reduced street traffic and enabled the creation of narrow, pedestrian-friendly walkways.

This approach enhances connectivity throughout the wider city area, with extensive underground basements spanning the entire district.

Msheireb Properties CEO, Engineer Ali al-Kuwari said: “We wanted to reclaim outdoor spaces for the community by removing vehicles from the streets around Msheireb.

“The Guinness World Records for the Largest Underground Car Park is a testament to our dedication to creating a sustainable and innovative city district that prioritises the well-being of our community. By locating car parking and building services underground, we enabled architects to design attractive buildings with active façades on all sides.”

MDD’s underground parking system ensures ample space for residents, tenants, and visitors, which makes it safe for drivers.

The facility features an intelligent parking system that guides drivers to available spaces, making the parking experience seamless and hassle-free.

Raafat Tawfik, Guinness World Records Official Adjudicator, said: “We are thrilled to recognise MDD for its outstanding achievement in creating the Largest Underground Car Park. This feat showcases the district’s commitment to innovation, sustainability, and enhancing the urban living experience.”
