The orientation and geometry of the tower will offer magnificent views of the sea. The bold sloping roofs and angular glass facades will glow and sparkle as they capture the changing sunlight at different times of the day, and transform into illuminations of quiet elegance with shimmering reflections in the water as dusk descends.

The tower will include a 70,000 m² retail area, as well as 60 floors of serviced and unserviced apartments, 20 floors of office space, and a 235-room 5 star hotel. The tower is located in the West Bay district of Doha, next to the Doha Corniche. Estimated construction costs of Dubai Towers Doha is 2.3 billion Qatari riyal (631.9 million USD).
