You as a moderator should be less political. Do you think it is good to make such statements in your signature? I find it ridiculous and childish and wonder how someone with your attitudes may become a moderator.

I can't find any political or biased tone on this. To claim the opposite is however.

Nice update Saudi guy, the central hotel tower has steadily grown in every update i see, so i think they could well make their 2010/2011 target.

This is because you have the edited version. The signature he used before WAS political.

Have you seen his former signature? Anti-semitic is the mood of Germans at the moment, where the neo-Nazis go out on the "hip" anti-Israel-demos together with the Arabs (although they hate them )...

Please return to the topic, from all the threads, this is the worst to open such a discussion.

Apart from the central core, is there any other part of the complex not topped out yet?

It looks very much as if there is only the core left to top out. The other buildings do have the roof decoration already.

Of course there are also the wing buildings that still have a long way to go.

In reality they look great. While the rendering was pretty kitsch, the actual facade looks really good!

Just my opinion

I really like the "Moorish" and "Middle-Eastern" decorative embellishments on the first few floors of the buildings. I think they are ornamental and give the project a traditional regional accent. They overall project is not to my liking, though, because I find it out of scale and pretentious.

It is a massive project, though. Very ambitious.

Can we please, PLEASE, keep politics out of these threads? This has nothing to do with the Palestinian/Israeli conflict and I am sick of the gratuitous slogans and insults rocketed at one side or the other.

agreed

If the project was half the size, or without the main tower it would look quite nice.
