QATARI ROYALS TO BUILD MEGA MANSION IN LONDON?
“The“final BOI report for this year shows that optimism prevails in Qatar, with a majority of businesses confident of embarking upon new projects as the country continues its bold and progressive journey towards the realisation of our National Vision.” Qatar's royal family is said to be planning to convert three of London's most prestigious addresses into a single mega-mansion valued at over QR1.14 billion (£200 million), according to media reports.
The family, which already owns famous London landmarks including the Shard, Harrods and the Olympic Park, has submitted plans to convert three properties in Regent's Park. The reports also said that Her Highness Sheika Mozah bint Nasser Al Missned bought the mansions last year for a reported QR570.49 million (£120 million), and hired a team of architects to redesign the properties into living quarters. The plans include transforming the already spacious homes into a 33,000-square feet palace, with a spa complex, heated pool, space for two limousines, games rooms, elevators, a gym and quarters for a butler and live-in nanny, the reports added.
