With today’s announcement, ARTIC’s portfolio now includes 12 hotels in Doha and 35 operational hotels across all regions, highlighting the continued expansion of our business operations locally, regionally and internationally.
Sustainability is a major component of this collaboration with the Element Hotels. As we did with Element City Center, we have developed this property with sustainable construction processes front of mind, paying close attention to key energy efficiency considerations in line with wider sustainable building trends. In addition, buildings have been developed using durable materials and products to lower the amount of required maintenance and ultimately reduce the carbon footprint of our properties. Qatar’s hospitality sector will continue its growth momentum following the World Cup and we are confident that this will generate great opportunities for Element West Bay.”
