Males, i totally agree with you. But this pic shows the skyline as it is today. By the time this building will constructed there will be at least 4 or 50+ story towers sharing the same skyline.
Oh right. It'll help a lot then. Maybe it's just the renderings of this tower are ugly (not the night one, the normal ones) and it'll look better. Think of Al Fattan towers in Dubai.

lol
it's called doha

there are hundreds of towers coming up
i try to cope with it on emporis, check it out

i know there are plenty of projects missing, but it's hard to find info

eg, the lagoon twin towers, awesome design

problem is, we don't have anybody from qatar, who is doing all the researches and site visits

I wonder whether 445m is the roof height or spire height (look at the model).
