That's awesome. It blends into the area really well. Also it's much easier to tell which towers are going up with this picture. Really puts it in perspective.

It will overpower the beauty of the mosque and cast too large of a shadow on the mosque

I think the middle tower is U/C, look at those 2 crains right in the middle of the complex.

The shadow could be a good thing. If it's really hot out there you would want to be under a shadow.

Are you Shia?

I have never heard anything positive about Saudi Arabia come out of you ever.

Don't look at the structure as a Salafi creation, If you have ever visited Makkah you would know the city is in dire need of built up area and infrastructure improvements.

It only makes sense for Makkah to grow vertically, each square meter of Makkah is worth more than any part of the world.

It is because of pure demand that they must build up vertically, Makkah is a remote area with Hills and Mountains everywhere, and with every square meter costing more than it does in Hong Kong it is only natural to build up.

The shadow is not exactly a bad thing. In Saudi Arabia most people prefer the shade since it is usually well over 40 degrees and the shade provides some welcome cooling.

I think the Saudi Govt should have tried to clear more circular space around the mosque to account for growing numbers of pilgrims in the future. I hope this tower is being constructed at a large distance from the mosque.

So we could expect more interesting projects in the future?
