If you are into qbs already, you are probably not interested but anyway:
CMake does everything you want. E. g. you can use the source_group command
to group into folders in Visual Studio, it does run CMake automatically
when any project file (CMakeLists.txt) has been changed and reloads the
projects if there are changes, etc
