Doha Tower and Convention Center | 570m | 112 fl | U/C



Nothing could better symbolise Qatar’s desire to create world-class architecture than the Doha Convention Centre and Tower which will bring a truly futuristic aspect to the Doha skyline.

Projected to cost US$1.7 billion and covering 124,220 square metres of development, architects Murphy Jahn, famous for the Deutsche Post building in Bonn and Munich Airport, have produced a design which is innovative and inspirational.

The Tower will soar 105 storey’s into the sky and offer panoramic city views from its prestigious central location on the Corniche. It will be home to a hotel with 300 guest rooms, 80 serviced apartments and 300 residential apartments.

The Convention Centre, adjacent to the Tower, will 87,000 square metres of convention space and is destined to become an important regional and international exhibition location.

Wow, I thought it was 15F too! I think this is the Barwa tower they were talking about. Salman, do your stuff please.

This is the Barwa supertall we talked about before, that will replace West Bay's current exhibition centre. Actually Qatari Diar owns a 45% stake in Barwa, that's why. Too bad the render is not bigger. But the tower looks very slender! Good thing!

Thanks Salman for the clarification. If I remember correctly, a big parking lot is being built right next to this Centre and Tower.

BTW, as much as I'm sad for the cancellation of the gorgeous Qatar Tower (IMO), as much as I am happy for this supertall. Would love to live on the 104th floor one day!
