From the render it looks like its going to be on the same road as Al Fardan Towers, we can see a little bit of Sheraton peeping out on the left

Halawala's right... It really does look so similar to the Palm towers. But we still need a render from another angle to be able to judge how it looks...

Okay guys, I found this, we have to make sure which one is the tower!

Qapco Tower
Doha, Qatar
QAPCO


This 32 storey tower is designed to provide a dramatic and recognisable image for Doha Bay, and to be individual and distinct from the the many tall buildings currently planned or under construction in this area of the city. The orientation of the building takes full advantage of spectacular views back towards the bay.
The narrowness of the site coupled with the desire to provide large, flexible open floor plates suitable for multinational tenants, led us to place the building's core to one side. The core is expressed as a solid element on the northwest side of the tower, where it does not obscure important views and has the added benefit of preventing afternoon sun from heating up the offices, thus saving energy.

Jassimiya is not at this spot, its right after the R/A if you're heading south.

This is an old proposal for Industries Qatar tower (QAPCO is owned by Industries Qatar). It is also at the same plot according to the renders...
