DOHA | Woqod Tower | 172m | 30 fl | U/C

Project: Woqod Office Building
Owner: Qatar Fuel Company (Woqod)
Budget: $100 million
Floors: 3 basements, ground, mezzanine and 30 floors and a four-storey car-park.
Total built-up area: 42,000 sq m.
Height: 172m.
Design & engineering consultancy: Romatre Project













The main concept has been carried out by creating a form of office building which reflects Woqod's logo, so from all directions you imagine the logo with smooth and unique form which will be a landmark for Woqod as major Qatari company. The building form reflects one of Woqod logo leafs while the two main canopies reflect the remaining part of the logo.



There's a VIDEO of the architects' website! http://www.romatreproject.com/qatar/...l?MenuButton=0

But, here is a map of where I think the location is. Its the only available empty land IN the southern side of City Center.

Mashalla! I was right on the probable location for this tower. Today I went to the same spot opposite Al-Fardan Towers and found the tower!
