I am sorry, but this Grollo tower was proposed for Melbourne? What is the height of the rendered version? Looks like some 600-650m!

@citystyle, do you honestly think that Doha, a city in the world's spotlight, is going to jack a design?

The size is impressive but I don't exactly like the design, it's kind of too simple IMO and not really original. It's not horrible at all though.
