It's the same project (and they seem to be wrong about 551m).

Here's an older post by Imre (in this thread), with pictures of the model: link.

And here's the thread in the Qatar forum.

It is strange that this project it seems gets little attention.

It is under construction - I can see it clearly from my friends apartment in the Alfardan tower next to the site. Also the new convention center which is a huge area. There are display boards which shopw the picture of this tower, but it is not like the picture at the start of this thread, much slimmer and more elegant.

Take some pictures and share with us.

There is nothing strange about it - no one is keeping this thread updated and people don't want to talk about something they can't see...

Sure, the next time I'll visit my friend I'll take some pictures and post. Right now I am in Dubai so maybe in a few days.

The site we can see clearly from his apartment which is on 32nd floor in the Alfardan tower. There are hundreds of piles completed in the area for the convention center and the piling activity is happening on the tower site

Meanwhile I can show you a picture at ground level, sorry it is not as good as the view from the Alfardan but it gives you an idea of the construction
