The Doha Convention Centre & Tower (DCCT) project is worth $600m. The centrepiece of the project will be a tower that will be at least 400 metres high and have a built-up area of 180,000 square metres. It will contain a hotel, apartments and shops.
The built-up area of the convention centre will be 100,000 sq m. The US’ Murphy Jahn prepared the concept designs for the project. US-based Turner Construction International was appointed as the project manager in 2006.
It is one of several high-rise schemes planned for Doha.
Abu Dhabi-based Al-Jaber Group plans to build a 100-storey tower on Doha Corniche. The mixed-use building will include residential and office space, together with a luxury hotel. Chicago-based SOM is the architect.
Negotiations are also under way for the $250m Doha World Trade Centre tower. Australia’s Multiplex is understood to be in talks with Qatar General Insurance & Reinsurance Company for the contract to build the tower.
The project, which will be located close to the convention centre on Doha Corniche, involves the construction of a 55-storey building with four levels of parking and a total built-up area of 140,000 sq m.
Bahrain-based Projacs is the project manager (MEED 9:7:08).
