Any news on what is happening with the Al Maha Sofitel building in West Bay? Rumor is that it is sinking…tear down or repair, and when??


We spoke to a company employee, and he told us that construction on the site has been on hold for two years due to a dispute with the government.

The developers had planned to construct 26 floors, he said, while the Qatari government wants the towers to be only 24 floors, which is how many currently exist. Work, as a result, is on hold until they can resolve the dispute.

The construction site sits next to the Mövenpick Tower & Suites, right off the Corniche and is a significant eyesore along the manicured path.
