The Pearl-Qatar in Doha, Qatar, is a luxurious residential complex that is being developed on an artificial island, off the coast of Doha’s West Bay. The 4-square-km island created on reclaimed land has 32 kilometers of new coastline lined with private villas, dozens of apartments towers and hundreds of homes, along with luxury hotels and opulent stores and restaurants. As of spring 2012, more than 5,000 residents have already moved in. When construction completes by 2015, the island will have room for 41,000. The Pearl-Qatar is one of the most ambitious development project in Qatar, and the first development to offer freehold and residential rights to international clients.

The development’s name “Pearl” refers to the major pearl-diving industry that used to be based on the shallow seabed where the island is being built. Qatar was one of the major pearl traders of Asia before the Japanese introduced cheaper more affordable pearls just before Qatar's oil boom. The island’s design also resemble a string of pearls.
