{Baghdad: Al Furat News} Our agency publishes pictures revealing for the first time the project of the new building of the building of the Central Bank of Iraq in Baghdad, designed by Iraq’s late international architect Zaha Hadid.
The project is carried out by the global company {Daax Construction}, the same company that carried out flame towers and Heydar Aliyev center in the Azerbaijani capital Baku. 
The company’s cadres started with concrete work at the base of the bank building, which will be the highest tower under construction in Iraq, consisting of 37 floors and a height of 170 meters. 
The building overlooking the Tigris River next to the Babel Hotel in Jadiriyah area includes gold and silver vaults, offices, conference and meeting rooms, a museum, a ceremonial area, car parks and green spaces, and a memorial to Zaha Hadid in honor of Zaha Hadid. 
The contract with the company for the implementation of the project is $ 800 million, and the design cost is $ 70 million.
It is noteworthy that the Central Bank of Iraq was signed in January 2012, a contract with the Office of the late architect Zaha Hadid to develop designs for the new bank building. 
The world-famous Iraqi engineer designed it to match the global buildings, leaving the choice of the company executing this design for the advisory bodies in the bank, because of the austerity and expenses of the war against “Daash.” 
Eighteen companies advanced to complete this design, and under the legal procedures, 4 companies remained in competition to be selected by the global company {Daax Construction}. 
In an earlier interview in 2017, Eng. Saleh Mahoud Salman, Director General of the Central Bank’s Administration, pointed out that Hadid’s reaction was very positive and enthusiastic because the design of the Central Bank building was the first project to be planned inside Iraq.
