As far as I know, it's not "back to 485" becuase I don't think it was ever down from that height. The circa 300m version with no spire was just a place holder when they were marketing the "Zamzam tower" (one of the side towers), but the Hotel Tower plans haven't changed since they finalized the tall and ornate version of it.

Please correct me if I am wrong....

Thank you so much for finally posting real updates guyz. I had nearly given up on this thread until now :-)

Hopefully we can get some pics of the entire project from diff angles to get an idea of how developed it is and how it is looking in relation to the Grand Mosque.

Impressive but too close and invasive to the Holy site.

Great pictures, Chad. I can't wait to see the Hotel Tower raise up in the middle with it's magnificent spire.
Also, I don't think we have to worry about it being too overpowering. No matter how impressive this building is, the Kaaba will still be the center of focus.

This tower just extends that feel.

And no the mosque still doesnt look small. If you look closely to the people standing next to the mosque, you ll realize how big the mosque atually is. It can never look small no matter how big the things surrounding it are.

Chad, thank you very much for the pics. Im not sure if you are based there but would love to see some good shots of the complex during the day and from a high elevation perhaps showing Mosque in the forground?


Riyadhi, that render left me without words...
