Pullman Hotel West Bay | U/C

Just read the announcement for a Pullman Hotel in West Bay. The operator signed the deal with Twin Towers Co. Does this name relate to any project currently under construction in the area?

Accor grows Pullman's regional network with first Pullman hotel in Qatar
Qatar:

The upscale and innovative service of the Pullman Hotels & Resorts brand is set to make its debut in Doha, Qatar which has been formalized by a partnership between Accor Middle East and Twin Towers Company. The first Pullman hotel in Doha will be located in the West Bay area, the upscale business district of Doha, and set to be completed by 2014.

Christophe Landais, Managing Director Accor Middle East, said: "We are honoured to partner with Twin Towers Company, in developing an international 5-star hotel in Qatar under the Pullman Hotels & Resorts brand".

"Qatar's growing importance as a leisure and business destination has established Doha as an international hub. A significant surge in the number of corporate and MICE travelers visiting Qatar has been observed over the last few years thanks to the development of world-class infrastructures in Doha."

In a statement issued by Twin Towers Company, owners of Pullman Doha said: "Qatar's expansion of its tourism and hospitality sector, particularly in Doha, is pushing ahead at a rapid rate, keeping pace with its overall programme of economic expansion. Our partnership with Accor, the world's leading hotel operator and market leader in Europe, enables us to support Qatar's vision in being one of the top destinations which can offer exclusive experiences par excellence. We are proud to introduce a well-known hotel brand such as Pullman in the Qatari market. Confident with Accor's expertise in managing hotels, we know that together we can expand Pullman's growth in the upscale segment."

The Pullman Doha West Bay will feature 470 keys (373 rooms and 97 serviced apartments), extensive meeting space including a ballroom of over 1,300sqm and an extensive range of F&B facilities, including 3 restaurants. The property is currently under construction, progressing at a very fast pace, with excavation works having been recently completed and design process now well progressed.

Yes that should be it. I was thinking of The Gate twin towers... I noticed that excavation works has started on one of the 2 towers (the project board says 51F)!!! But as the article mentions these works are completed, I would also opt for Bridge Tower. To be confirmed...

Piling has started last year, but then work stagnated for so long the whole plot turned into a water lagoon!

You're right! I'm still not 100% convinced this is Bridge Towers, as there are other twin towers nearby (work has started on one of The Gate towers - 51F)...once the confirmation is there let's merge!
