the two "small" towers in front where the right one is completed already are 240m, the other 2 behind are 260m. and there are another 2 260m towers in the background. looks like the Hotel tower is already at 240m/almost 260m maybe, but the angle could be wrong.

Maybe it will be nice when finished. But still don't understand why they built it next to the mecca ?It would be better few kilometers far from the site imo. How will the site look in 30 or 50 years? Maybe other supertalls?
