no offence to Doha or anything, but I really have no plans at all for going there. The dreaded ex lives there and no building, or world wonder, would ever bring me there.....in saying that though the 5 towers look pretty average imo

Wauw Doha is really booming! In just 2 years the whole skyline has grown so much... I am usually in Doha every 6 month, and each time a new building has finish, or another one starting to take form.
But I really hope they wont follow in the footsteps of Dubai, but until now it havent been that bad, they are taking the safer way in Qatar.

This is just amazing how the West Bay area turned into skyscrapers park in a very short period of time.
