Burj Qatar | 44 fl | 232m | COM

Hi fellas, hope you're all cool. Sorry been away for a while, due to travelling and being busy with family and study. Well, I'll be taking pics of some buildings in bahrain later on maybe in the next week and a half and uploading them later. BTW, Merry Xmas to all who celebrate it. Anyways, here is good news for qatar, no rendering though, enjoy:


Qatar National Bank (QNB) has signed a $125m term loan facility deal to finance the construction of the tallest building in Qatar and a state-of-the-art gymnasium, said a report.

The 232-metre-high 'Doha High-rise Office Building', a 44-storey cylindrical complex, has been designed by French architect Jean Nouvel.

This project will be a new landmark for the city, said a top official.

The building, owned by Shaikh Saoud bin Mohamed Al Thani, is situated in the 'New Doha' area near the Sheraton Hotel, will have a unique architectural design and feature several panoramic lifts.

The building is expected to be completed in February 2007.

"Today's deal reflects QNB's ongoing strategy to invest in the country's growing property market," said Vince Cook, general manager corporate banking and capital markets, who signed the deal on behalf of QNB.

"QNB now holds Qatar's largest share in property financing with more than 70 per cent of the new projects being undertaken by Qatari private sector," he said in remarks published in the Peninsula newspaper.

Hamad Al Duhaimi signed the deal on behalf of Shaikh Saoud bin Mohamed Al Thani.

He said QNB's loan will be used to fund all construction phases.

"We noted that QNB was actively engaged in many projects that are changing Doha's skyline and this particular project will create an impressive new beacon heralding our rapid expansion.

"We consider QNB as a partner in this ambitious project and not just a financer.

"I'm sure that by the end of this decade, a new, dynamic image will have significantly evolved," he added.

PROPOSED-Q: KHALIFA PEACE TOWER, 300m Hotel

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The Khalifa Sport Complex represents the examplary equipment of the City of Doha.

The major stake of man has ever been the equilibrium.

As it raises up to 300 meters through the sky of the Middle East, it will be the lighthouse which will guide people to this sport place by excellence. This symbol must catalyse the energies, and will constitute a rallying sign for the whole youth of the Asiatic world and worldwide.

The panoramic restaurant, and the 200 rooms’hotel will be able to welcome sport people or international sport “coaches”.

Inside its Telecommunic ation laboratory, it will mobilize all the most uptodate means of communications and of information. It will be radiating always more and more.

The steel constituted for the men a richness of the evolution for the XIXth century civilization.

The steel structure represents the modern application of the science and of the technics to this building.



Inside this tower we are discovering :
• a panoramic Restaurant of a capacity for 160 persons,
• a panoramic Bar,
• an area exceeding 100 m² reserved to the telephone equipment,
• an Hotel including 200 rooms,
• A ball-room / Conference room,
• A didactic Sport Museum.

By night this tower will be lighted owing to a scintillating lighting similar to that one of the Eiffel Tower.

Being in a strong position with its 300 meters height, it will represent permanently the lively flame of the Qatar. The millions of visitors and of tourists will make of it the public image of this modern country, where the culture is settling within all the disciplines.

Its image will contribute to build the examplary face of a contemporaneous and modern City such as Doha is.

Doha will so come into the modern era.

This is fantastic news. Qatar desperately needs to shake off its 'dullest city in the Gulf' tag and new developments like this should make Doha more interesting. Doha needs a 100 new developments like this. It sure has the money to do it.

Man this looks pretty bad. Looks like the cornish just got a !!!!-on. :P

Anyways i did have some pics of this project posted somewhere. Cant remeber where. Its being built by a very famous architecut, i forgot his name, but he is building a similiar tower in Spain.

It will be a great addition in the skyline. If this is the actual location then ground work has begun already.

They really shouldn't build such a high tower so close to the corniche - that's poor planning. It should really be placed a block away from it.
