The project involves the construction of five towers for Al Rayyan Tourism Investment Company with a direct link to the existing Doha City Centre Mall, one of the largest malls in the Gulf. The project comprises two hotel towers in Phase 2 at the west end and three hotel towers in Phase 3 at the east end of the mall. The total built-up area is around 330,000 square metres with the combined podiums having a footprint of 27,000 square metres. The five towers have a combined footprint of 10,000 square metres narrowing to 700 square metres at the top of each tower.
