Thank-you for highlighting the article once again. It is perhaps an opportune time to suggest all to go back and read it once more.

Beside Historical importance there is no religious significance to those old sites. Who cares about history if it prevents worshipers from achieving their religious duties?

The rest of the article is an aggregated bullshit.

well said , i don't know what the others are complaining about

Oh please. This is a thread about the construction of a skyscraper complex in Mecca. It's not about US military bases in Saudi Arabia. What's wrong with some of you guys?

wow guys you need to chill out and stop talking about non sense

for anybody that keeps on trolling about how this building is so huge or how they destroyed historical buildings for new buildings, will am sure the Saudi government knows what its doing and by the way it's a good thing they destroyed all those old buildings, people come to makkah to worship not to tour some old buildings and cry over them

now get back on topic

^ I wouldn't bring that back up just let it die. And 284 meters seem right. It may be just a little taller.

Emaar, the leading global property developer, is offering fully-furnished serviced residences in the Holy City of Makkah. Emaar is showcasing spacious studios and one- to three-bedroom apartments at the tallest tower in the Holy City developed by Saudi Bin Laden Group and located in the heart of Abraj Al Bait.

That's only one of many changes. On the new diagram, proportions between main tower and neighboring towers are better now (Royal Hotel taller, the rest smaller). The tent roofs are clearly visible, but the links between the sky bridges have disappeared. And there's a new setback at around 360m.

Indead the top really has changed much - instead of a fat building with a tall, but lean spire, there's a more slender tower with a golden gigantic spire and huge crescent, that will be clearly visible from many miles away.
Although the hour marks on the clock face appear to big now for my taste, I prefer the new design. Good drawing job by the way.
