Beautiful Design

This is a nicely designed Tower. I'm guessing it will be the 6th Tallest Building in the World at the time of completion.

I never knew this one was already u/c. I really like the design in the latest rendering above.

Given Qatar's small size (about 120x60km) I guess this tower will be visible in quite a huge part of the country.
