Wow for the first time I actually think this thing is gonna be beautiful. Its definitely unique and the amount of stonework on this thing is unheard of these days its like a modern day enormous version of the woolworth building.

Not a fan of mecca and the whole secret islam city, but this is one great tower. Much better than all the other trashy "look at me" supertalls going up in the world these days.
