I liked the design.

But there must be something wrong about the cost. 180m$ is quite less for a 100F tower.

this design is suspiciously similar to one of the final designs proposed for the "Flower of the East" hotel in Kish island in Iran..

the design of barwa is weird. the top and bottom don't work well together. 100fl is impressive though.

DOHA: Barwa Real Estate Company, along with Qatari Company for Real Estate Investment Company and Kuwait-based Al Imtiaz Investment Company, has set up Barwa Al Khor Company with a capital base of QR250mn.

The proposed company aims to purchase and develop lands of Al Khor resort, according to a news item posted on the Doha Securities Market (DSM) website.

Barwa shared yesterday closed at QR28.5 and trading volume was 690,166 shares.

With a capital base of QR2bn, Barwa has assets to the tune of QR2.1bn as of March 30, 2006.

Barwa, which recently tapped the market with a mega QR1.1bn Initial Public Offer, has plans to construct 100-storey executive and residential tower with halls and showroom, spanning 1.33mn sq ft, at the Qatar International Exhibition Centre, and 711,746 sq ft executive, hotel, tourist and recreational towers in West Bay.

Barwa had outlined a six-point strategy including establishing regional and international collaboration with renowned companies and research houses in the sector and promotion of real estate investment among foreign investors through electronic means.

Initially Barwa will focus on developing properties owned by it or will own in accordance with the globally recognised standards and commercialise these assets and then sell these and look for a new real estate investments.

Amazing!
Doha is great but it is a sub-million city ini population!?
and...
the construction cost is only 180millionUS$, it's really economic for such a supertall building.
