Please dont bump threads asking for updates. If someone had any updates they would post it without someone asking for them, we just have to be patient.

100% agreed Blue Flame. I don't get why ppl can only take photos of towers below 300m in Doha.

Kinda like South Korea, announcing a couple of +500m towers but barely even building anything close to 300m.

how do you guys expect an update when the construction contract is not yet awarded !!

Quote:
In August 2010, bids of the 2 shortlisted companies for the construction contract were still under evaluation.

In Q4 2010, the construction contract is expected to be awarded (delayed from March 2010 to August 2010).

In 2013, the project is expected to be completed.

Not just yet. Apparantly they are still evaluating the offers from construction companies to choose the winning bid.

I think the Qataris are a bit lost with where they are going. Imex for example - recruited a load of experienced interdealer brokers from London to set up an hydrocarbon exchange - now they're sat around doing nothing.. it's little wonder building projects are lacking direction, energy city is linked with all these other projects.

Any updates on this? According to Wikipedia construction resumed a couple of months ago back in October.
