The Doha Convention Center Tower is a 400 m (1,300 ft) tall skyscraper under construction in Doha, Qatar.[2] Construction is currently suspended, but "is expected to restart in 2011".[2] Estimated completion is in 2012.[1][3]

The building, shaped like a tapering obelisk, will house offices on the lower levels, apartments, a hotel and penthouse residences on the upper floors. At the very top, a private club will occupy a 60 m (200 ft) high glass cylinder surrounded by extensions of tower's facade and supported by a structural helix.[3]
