Dubai International Properties, a Dubai Holding member company, is getting ready to start the execution of large projects in a number of countries in the Middle East.


Mohammed Al Gergawi, CEO of Dubai Holding.
The company is set to build 'Dubai Towers- Doha' at a total cost of more than AED 1 billion.

Mohammed Al Gergawi, CEO of Dubai Holding said: 'The UAE has witnessed great developments in the past five years. We, at Dubai Holding, are keen on sharing this experience with our brothers from the GCC region. This is how H.H General Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai and UAE Minister of Defence, has always envisioned it, as he strongly believes in having a unified strategy for growth'.

Al Gergawi added that: 'Dubai Holding has major projects such as Dubai Internet City and Dubailand. It is about time to share this success with our brothers. Dubai Towers - Doha will symbolise this cooperation.'

Farhan Faraidooni, CEO of Dubai International Properties said: ' Dubai Towers - Doha will feature boulevard, offices, residential accommodation, and a five-star hotel, a health centre, gym, restaurants, a well-equipped business centre with high speed Internet connection, parking lots, security services, and 24-hour maintenance system, laundry -- all of which will add to the uniqueness of the project.'

He said: 'We aim at investing in the Gulf markets, as they offer promising opportunities. Doha was our first choice as it provides a unique atmosphere for investment and work.

Faraidooni said: 'We will adopt state-of-the-art facilities in building Dubai Towers-Doha, as we will deal with top international architecture companies such as 'RMJM, which were in charge of designing Emirates Towers. The company will adopt a unique design for Dubai Towers-Doha, as it will hire leading interior designers. We are confident that Dubai Towers - Doha will be the city's new and best project.'

big big news guys



Dubai International Properties has postponed closing date to 2 May for the main construction package on the 400 metres high Dubai Tower in West Bay, set to be the tallest building in Doha

Tender documents were released in early March and prequalifiers were originally given until 11 April to bid for the contact which calls for the construction of an 80-storey tower. The mixed-use development will have a substantial podium to house retail, restaurants and entertainment facilities. Above it will be about 20 floors of office space and 60 storeys of one and two-bedroom apartments.
Nine international companies have been invited to bid for the contract.
The main contract will take 24-30 months to complete.
The project manager is the US’ Hill International.

Awesome design! And awesome height if it really will be 400m. I don't think there are anything nearly as tall in Doha. Seems like other Middle east cities will follow the "skyscraper trend of Dubai".

I forgot to ask: Why call it Dubai Towers when it is just one?

i can just give you the reason why there's "dubai" in the name
the developer is dubai international properties by dubai holding, a mega developing company from dubai

in fact there are dozens of high-rises coming up in doha. they build a completely new skyline, called west bay. there still is more in the pipeline

do you draw this tower for ssp?

400m is impressive I'd have to say, we'll see what DIB has in store for the other gulf countries they're planning to invest in, if they intend on building towers there. I know of other arab countries where they've invested but not to build towers.

Dubai-lover i dont really think dubai holdings is building any more towers or changing the west bay skyline completely. Most of the land in the west bay has been squared in and ground work has started, so Im not sure where exactly in the west bay theyd aquire land.
