Not yet. Its still too early to tell, but I would predict its the local Merweb Hotel Chain.

How high up is the uppermost inhabitable floor? looks like the roof feature is a good 120m-150m alone, so maybe around 415m to 420m for the 108th floor?

Are any floors skipped in this building?

Superb! I'd love to see this "Grollo Tower" design become reality in Doha... after the original had been cancelled in Melbourne and the second proposal had been changed to what we all know as Burj Dubai.

I'm only a bit confused about the name... is "Barwa Tower" and "Doha Tower and Convention Center" actually the same project?

answer is no

Doha tower is compleatly diffrent its already underconstruction and its going to be 570m but Barwa tower or sometimes called arwa tower is another mystery project.

oh the other hand there is a tower named Burj al-teijary in doha which is said to be 800m but its highly unlikely.

I have seen the pics but the pics are more than 2moths old and noone said back then that the status of this tower should be changed to u/c. So i thought that something changed on that site.

The tower itself is not underconstruction. An exhibition center stands in its place now, and it has to be dismantled first for construction to take place.
