or maybe we could just have the helipad and not use it

nice design... but theres no possible way that this is gna be build. Maybe this project will live up in 20 years time again, but now.. no way.

look at that building man, it looks like it the helicopter blade hits the building its just gna cut the building in half.

I doubt Doha has a market for huge spikes with almost no floor area. It has been a pipe dream from the beginning.

so when build will this be considered a skyscraper? i guess not , because wasnt there a definition that over 25% of the building being a spire its not a skyscraper?
