Let's comment only about the project and to clear everything and to do not go back for it "No casino in the project at all".

i am utterly disgusted by this development. i mean just look in the elevator, the words are in English. Only muslims are allowed in this city... It's sick how westernized and developed the most sacred city in a religion of 1+ billion is. and the tower is bland and cheap...

The Witchking of Angmar would appreciate the concept of the building. However, you need to add more to the general dark and dreading apperance.
