I always wondered where they put all those pilgrims. They definitely have a need for big hotels there.

Ironically, it's sort of shaped like the Aladdin casino with those two wings sticking out front. But the glass and siding on Abraj Al-Bait sure look a lot better than the ugly Aladdin.

Crikey! indeed.

I cannot recall anyone from Arabia posting on any of these forums. Without someone from that area to help keep us updated and our conversation on track, religious controversy is all we have to add.

If they put a jumbotron in front of the Abraj Al-bait Hotel advertising Celine Dion, you'll know someone has made a mistake because the Blue Man Group is a far better act.

I understand Osama Bin Laden will be coming out of retirement to do a magic act there. He's going to make two buildings disappear.

That building looks like it belongs to the Soviet Era .The design is very bold but I believe it will somehow spoil Mecca's skyline, but we will have too see it when it's finished.

I see that Mecca plans to build a monorail or an LRT system. When will it be built?I hope they plan and build it carefully,I can already imagine a worst case scenario where pilgrims being pushed by the crowd behind them and fall on the rail tracks as the train arrives...

Yeah, I would like to know this too CULWULLA!

But judging from Saudi guy's last post latest post above, it seems to be back up to 485m/1,591ft. It also states this on both Emporis and skyscraperpage.com.
