In Dubai some people got 3 million Dirhams as a compensation for a 2500 sqf tiny land plot in one of the shittiest locations here.

Mecca only has about a dozen of supertalls, but all of them are unique and massive!

Im impressed by the height but the design is terrible it looks like a bad 80's hotel in Las Vegas, but i will hold off my final judgment until its finished, maybe it will look much better then...

Hum, it is a monster by size. But one should see that it is in the neighbourhood of the holiest Islamic place. So the design should respect the traditional style. And so I think the design matches with the objective to create an Islamic traditional style skyscraper. We shouldn't always expect the whole world to build in our own taste. There is some kind of "national taste" that should be respected and which has it's own aesthetics!

If i could visit it, i would do it.

But i don`t complain. The goverment also limits the amount of pilgrims to mecca.
Maybe in the future when Mecca has a better infrasturcture to handle all pilgrims and muslim visitors they will allow visitors from other religion, too. Maybe not in the holy mosque but around it and there will be a very strict dress code.
Many years ago all religion were allowed in Mecca. Maybe in the future it will be again like in the past.
