DOHA | Doha Convention Center Tower | 551m | 1808ft | 112 fl | Canceled

Name: Barwa tower
Location: doha-Qatar , west bay area , convention area.
Height: 570m
Floors: 108
Construction start: mid 2006
cost:180 million $
total area : 1,337,147 cubic meter
mixed use



Render:




PREVIOUS DESIGN



I made this picture to show you how BARWA tower, DUBAI tower, ALBIDAA tower, and DOHA office tower will look like in our skyline. Hope It will be very close to the reality.



Notice: there is an illusion in the picture due to the perspective, buildings in the right appear smaller than the left coz the left are closer to the camera.
But I mad the size of the 4 towers as there is no illusion

SEE this with some other towers that will appear in our skyline; there are more towers but I can't put them all .

~1,3M cubic meters. I guess that would be devided by 3-5, depending on the height of each floor (to get sq m, that is)

Nice tower and nice future skyline, but it looks awfully unproportioned with those 2 monster towers on each side of the skyline and then pretty small towers in comparison with those two.

But it will look better once all of the taller buildings are built like in your second future skyline, and hopefully they get a few more supertalls to help even it out.

According to one of the local newspapers, the location of this tower will take Qatar Convention Center's place, so I think they will demolish the existing convention centre to build this project.

Area is square metres not cubic metres - you mean volume? I've never seen the volume of the building stated before?

Reminds me of the Guangzhou tower. Looks like a very ambitious project anyway. I wonder how tall it'll be - there's a guy on UrbanPlanet claiming it'll be taller than Dubai Towers (445m roof, 500m spire). Wow!
