Domenico:i live in jeedah(50 km far from mecca) but most who live's in jeedah go to mecca once every day~week.

Escoto_Dubai2008: we should wait
1 tower completed
1 almost complet
1 i think 70%~80% finsh

ive added the mecca tower to my diagrams.
ive left off the 2 x240m winged towers that are only joined by bridges.
The diagram on skyscraperpage is too wide. from latest render the main tower is approx 82m wide not 100m as shown on ssp.ive worked out some heights- main tower is 330m high with main roof at 360m. base of spire diamond structure is approx 376m.what is that glass diamond straucture anyway? some sort of ob pod?

Wow!! Tall + massive. great updates Saudi Guy.
