I hope you are kidding..hehehee~

Another reason why it not suitable located in that territory is.....Mecca famous because of Kaaba..so the main focus point is Kaaba but not the huge building..correct?? Further more, there also got no such highrise around..the different is too obvious..

Anyone~agree??

guys,the whole point is to create like what you can call "a giant pointer" to the holy mosque.so who's going to makkah cann tell the position of the holy mosque between the mountains from Makkah's borders.and it's gonna be the only super tall in the area around the holy mosque.
beside it's a perfect height for the lunar observation center in the top of it.

Don't like the idea and the building. It doesn't fit to Mecca and Kaaba

Yup!! But does it should be that close to Kaaba as the picture shown??
It's high enough to point out the position of Holy Mosque but not necessary to be that close..

That's only my opinion..anyone??

I think 90 per cent of Skyscrapercity agrees that this is madness and just a matter of showing off power and money, just review this thread back and you'll see it. Only what's the point of repeating it, most people just left this thread in disappointment and did not turn back...

you may be right about the formuers that leave this thread in disappointment but you and them have the wrong idea about why this complex is near the mosque and it is because it will always be a resource centre in close range to the holy mosque it's not just a hotel or an apartment for the rich but its also a prayer area a medical centre a mall light rail w etc....

By the way this project is an End mount to king abdullazize so all the money this project draws goes for the holy mosque and its expeditions.
