@triplem, it's been announced that this is going to be in DOHA. Why isn't anyone reading the previous posts?....

Doha is ideal because it's now official one the fastest growing cities on earth.

I think that this might be built next to the Doha Space project. (if that get's off the ground)

interesting building........

lets see whether it does get built. I know Doha is one fast growing city but it diesn't have the same sort of influence as Dubai. Would look good rising from the deserts of Qatar.

Count me in too: My favorite too!

By the way, how many votes a skyscraper has to have to make it a sticky!? I guess you're seeing my intentions already.

I'm not speaking as a Qatari when I say that I think the tower is truely a unique design.

I think it's beautiful no matter where it is. Once I get details on the Space City I'll post it as it may give us an indication of where the constellation will be built.

I agree with lemon.

My favorite too! Funny, it's only 20 floors, and the rest above is the biggest spire in the world.
