You mean the Tower rising?
No, no, no !

Slowly at the moment, which could give some negative feelings.
But it WILL be completed.

Works for me: move mouse to bottom of view to see controls, click on camera symbol.
New window opens with static picture of view, save via right mouse click.

ŋ?

Iīm the only one that think that this kind of buiding has no sense in a place like that?. If it was NY, Chicago or Tokyo, it would have an explanation, but here?, in the middle of nothing?. Ah!!!, ok, itīs something like a fight for who has the tallest tower of the world until another city build another one, in this case Dubai, one more time. Iīm so sorry Jeddah, your efforts doesnīt mean a thing.

In the middle on nowhere? Look it up on google earth please, it may not be a place u like to visit but jeddah has the airport which the pilgrims (visiting close by Mecca) use.. and at one point around 4 millions of those visit the city each year, all muslims... it doesn't have to apeal to western tourists from chicago or whatever. We do fine without them.

Unfortunately you're not the only one. This thread actually gets a regular dose of posts regurgitating the same tired "middle of no-where" commentary, among other things.

Would be nice if a separate thread existed for those who want to discuss the necessity/purpose/politics of this tower, so the rest of us who just enjoy watching tall buildings rise can focus on the construction.
