Lol, you get Common Myna's in Doha as well! They're introduced pests in Australia (and I think they're introduced to Qatar as well?)The other birds were of course Feral Pigeons.

Notice how the website says "Site Webcam 1", as if they're planning to install more!...

Yes they are! There are now TWO webcams on the Dubai Towers Doha website including a map that shows you exactly where they're located. Although only webcam 2 is working for me at the moment.

Yesterday, I decided to pay the construction site a visit... And here are some photos I took.







They are really working... Lots of noise and many workers. But they're really so slow. There really hasn't been a noticeable difference since like 2 or 3 months ago!



O! And on my way home, I saw this sick-looking, insane-sounding Murcie LP640!

By the way you all! it is a 98 floors tower (Halawala, you should put that in the title of the thread.)

Huge render! Enjoy

Nice render with the QIC behind it and sea view

And yes, Culwulla... I can't believe there hasn't been any updates for that long. Even in the Qatar forum. I had to travel all the way from Cairo to Doha to get you guys a few pics! :P lol!

I'm finding hard to belive that the recent posted photographs are of the same construction site as the ones posted last year.

Yes it was... But since it's been a long time since we heard any news about the construction progress and since we can no longer view the live webcam, someone had to get down there!

Thanks

Seriously this tower hasn't advanced in nothing for a year, I can't believe it, when I saw the first page I thought that today it will be a wonderful estructure with part of the cladding, but it didn't.

The project was put on hold for quite some time... That's why not much has been done.
