You are welcome Domenico

Here are some other pictures... We can see the top of the podium (almost +100 m) and Hotel + Tower Hajer have been started to be built above the podium.

Also, we can see one of towers (Al-Marwa Tower) with all details and it is clear that roof is being built for tents.

Thx again.

What do you mean by tents? Do you actually mean people can put up their own tents there? :P

In the picture below, we really get to see how beautiful the facade is. For those who thought it looked like Vegas, how wrong you were...

Tents will be resturants. There are many on each tower and the centeral podium too.

Wow!
Someone should change the hight in the topic title.
With 577m is Abraj Al-Bait one of the highest U/C skyscrapers of the world, only the clock is IMO a little bit to big.
