the shear greatness of this project will dwarf anything a casino could offer but one thing both will have in common is enormous wealth.

sorry for bumping a thread without any new information.... but there has been a lot of posts in part 1 recently and i wanted to put this one ahead of it so people stop, seems most people here find it impossible to actually look for threads themselves.

For members who like this project and its location, Congrats

For members who hate the project for its location and disagree with building any skyscraper infront of the holy mosque, You can hate it more now lol
Thanks to DreaM1981.

Yes, they started building the main tower (above podium) 1 month ago.

Should not moderator change the thread name from "abraj al-bair (PART 2) 485M" to "577M" ?

The change in the design was officially announced yesterday. The major change is adding a clock which will be the highest in the world. And as DreaM1981 said, the height of the hotel tower will be 577m.


looks like a giant big ben!

i like the 2005 design. whats the purpose of such a big sized clock placed in it. it is forcing the building to appear small than it actually is.

That clock is such a disgrace, why not an electronic clock instead?
