Musahireb is a central district in the municipality of Doha. It is one of the oldest districts of Doha and is made up of two and half zones of Qatar (zones 13, 4 and half of 3). The former standalone district of Al Asmakh has been encompassed within Mushaireb. In 2010 The government launched the Mushaireb Downtown Doha project with the aim of completely refurbishing the district, an area covering 31 hectares. Plans for the $5.5bn overhaul of the district included the demolition of much of the older buildings, however some historic architecture dating back to the early 20th Century can still be found.
The area has good road and transport links with 11 bus routes than run every day of the week and the Mushaireb Metro station, Qatar's largest Metro station and major interchange station that serves 3 Metro lines, the Red, Green and Gold Lines. There are plenty of homes for rent in Mushaireb but as the area is a historic area there are no residential compounds or villas. Instead, there is a large selection of apartments in the area to suit all budgets and for larger families of for those looking for more luxurious properties, there are larger duplexes and penthouses available for rent.
