Is it AL Bidda on the right there looking worse and worse and it gets covered in dsust, only looks good at night (like much of Doha TBH)

This tower is easily the ugliest in Westbay, there is nothing redeeming about it at all. Let's be honest though not many towers in Westbay are very pretty, they are built cheaply and all clad in the same glass, none have a lightness of touch of say the Shard, Tornado tower is perhaps the prettiest, and perhaps best built as it seems to be the one tower with tenants.

Bit harsh, especially when we still haven't seen the finished product. And while there are some cheap looking towers in West Bay, I think a lot of them are architecturally great... Fardan towers, Qatar Navigation tower, Burj Qatar, Al Bidda, Torando Tower, the twin towers opposite City Center are all good examples of this.

"Some cheap looking towers" ????

Come on nearly every tower in the City is using the same blue glass in the same shape panels. And aluminum clad concrete. It all looks terrible.

The entire City looks exactly like it has been built on the cheap and we all know it has been.

Tornado and Silhouette towers are the only decent looking buildings in Town, the new Intercont looks half finished at the top. Al Fardan towers look like to aluminium clad monsters.
