It's very big; but I believe that Mecca has the largest construction site in the world right now.

If you count the entire city districts under construction in Tianjin, then that has the largest construction site.

It looks more golden in the old renderings... I liked that shade... It added it's own spice to it. Hopefully it'll be more like that in reality. Anyway, looks amazing !

Yes. If they finish pilling this or next month the raft will be completed by the end of this year.

Hard to tell but since it seems to continue on the other side I assume it's either an access tunnel / ramp or a shaft for technical installations. Could be both wrong, though
