So does the video King of Construction posted show the final design?

If not, what is the design being implemented now?

Oh come on That plan is horrible. All the same buildings over and over again. Not very inspirational. I like the plan from the youtube video a few post back much better.

No guys, this is what they are building:




Note: There is another development project of the holy mosque called "mataf development" which will start also inshallah after hajj to increase the area of mataf and the uthmani domes will be removed. (its to make the part around the black kaa'ba a full circle)

the is the last render, as far as i know, more here: http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showth...566372&page=26

There will be clocks on all 4 sides. The ones on the left and right will be smaller than the ones on the front and back, since the building is not square.
