Hi evryone,
ive been wanting to know about this project for the past year when i visited Mecca. i found this wonderful forum about 2 weeks back and seen how well the project has progressed. its GREAT!
just a few requests from u guys:
1. what is that building doing right infront of the AL Beit towers - is it a hotel? if so whats it called? and will it stay there?
2. has anyone got information of any projects on shammiya side - i remember seeing some pics about it but cant find them now.
thanks

1. that little building is really mysterious but I hope they demolish it once the project is complete.

2. Shammiya side will be devlelped by Emaar KSA (Joint venture between Aloula and Emaar). No official annoncement after the project was given to them.

Heavily doubt we have Makkan's on SSC, we do have a few Saudi's that can get us updates, from my understanding the main tower won't go up till the peripheral towers are well on their way to completion.

Which building can you point it out?, And what's the Shammiya project?

Sorry for my ignorance.

--Thanks Riyadhi for your reply, have you got any more pictures for the shammiya projects and any schedules?
-- also can anyone post a selection of the 4 main projects in makkah (listed) and any others planned in a different forum which will make it easier for people like me to understand what the plans are for the future of Makkah.

-- Jabal Omar project
-- Shammiya project
-- khandama project
-- Al beit Towers
