Qatari Diar Real Estate Investment Company has invited a limited number of pre-qualified contractors to bid for the construction of a 112-storey tower in Doha, Qatar.

It is the third construction package released for the Doha Exhibition Centre and Tower project which is valued at US $1.2 billion (QAR 4.4 billion).

The first construction package was for the piling works for the overall project. The second, released just a few months ago, involved construction of the exhibition centre, and is due to be awarded by the end of the year.

The tower will be comprised of a hotel with 300 guest rooms, 80 serviced apartments and 300 residential apartments. The exhibition centre will cover 100,000m2.

Barwa Realhas, of which Qatari Diar owns 45%, has been appointed the main developer of the project.

The tower was designed by architect Helmut Jahn, famous for the Deutsche Post building and the Sony Centre in Berlin.

Qatari Diar was established by the Qatar government in 2004 to support the country's real estate development priorities.
