Ok i checked this section but a thread named "doha tower and convention center" doesnt even exist....

The thread TITLE SHOULD BE CHANGED to "Doha Convention Center and Tower"
Thats the official name...

Well, I don't think so. I checked google earth. On the picture from june 2 2009 the pilling is allready done. On these pictures, you posted, towers site seems to be abandoned, and on the Qatari subforum I red that it may be cancelled

Well the best proof would be fresh pictures from the site. If it really is U/C after four months we should see nice progress made, but I actually doubt about that.

Patrykus, you can clearly see construction in the pictures i quoted from Massilia, for the convention center which is part of the project so technically its under construction. Google Earth images for Qatar are highly outdated, you certainly cant compare it to the fairly fresh images above, again, construction reached street level. Don't believe the cancellation stuff, its probably posted by some jealous idiots that believe the entire middle east is falling down because of the economic crisis. thats not the issue, the issue is for the new airport to open which is going to be in 2011 so we should see construction of the tower itself before that time.

Convention center doesn't count as a tower. The tower may be on hold, and convention being build at the same time. As for the google earth image. That was the point. On the picture from year back we can see the same as on your update. And if you're saying the tower will start in 2011 thats great, but as for now it's still on hold.

If you feel like getting people's attention, just use rubricated mega bolded letters.

If (real) piling is completed then this is under construction.
