for once, we need a shot taken from behind the building !!!! seriously we need to see other angles, i'm sure it looks taller from behind (the base will look like part of the tower)
like this old picture


the scientific observatory


this one here (21 towers) will be built behind abraj al bait, and its a part of the same project, under the same name (abraj al bait)


this picture has the right colors

I prefered the original colours for the clock, the gold looks good too but not as good as the original

when they finish this and those other towers behind it, they will have created a whole city from just one project......i think it is good that they are putting some buildings behind it, it won't look so out of place then

Wow, tremendous project with the addition of the future towers behind the tallest one! It might be the project with the biggest floor space in the world by the end of construction of the entire Abraj Al-Bait !

why are they going to build more towers directly behind? wouldn't it make more sense to build them beside? it has 5 helicopter landing pads!

^ because i think they need to expand the mosque for more people, currently it can get really crowded, they can't just surround the mosque with hotels, that way there can be no expansion of the mosque
