The Doha Convention Center Tower is a 551 m (1,808 ft) tall skyscraper under construction in Doha, Qatar. Construction is currently suspended following the discovery that the building would impact flight paths to and from Doha International Airport. Construction is expected to continue once the New Doha International Airport is completed on reclaimed land approximately 3 km to the east of the current airport. The delay means that the building's completion date has moved from 2012 to the end of 2015.
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.
