I think Saudi Arabia will slowly allow more Hajj and Umrah grants because of the developments in Makkah, especially the expansion and the shamiya area, but the accommodation i think is still a problem in Makkah... more Abraj Al-Bait's will be needed but this time they should be built away from the haram area...

The Ka'abat (i.e. "The Origin" in Arabic) -- الكعبة المشرفة

It saddens me to see these buildings being erected next to the Holy Ka'abat. إنه لمن دواعي حزني أن أرى هذه البنايات تخنق الكعبة المعظمة. The origin of the Islamic rule in this is that no building should be allowed to over-shadow or rise in height above the Holy House. الإصل في الإسلام أن لا يطل على بيت الله العظيم مبنى يضاهئه أو حتى يرتفع عنه في أي بقعة من بقاع مكة المكرمة. A Muslem should be able to spot the Holy Ka'akat from anywhere in the Holy City. للمسلم أن يرى بيت الله الحرام من أي مكان في مكة المكرمة دون عائق أوخارق. But I am not surprized since this was a Prophecy told by the holy prophet Allah's Peace and Blessings be upon him. لكن لا أعجب من هكذا أمر بالنظر إلى رسول الله تعالى محمد صلى الله عليه وسلم تنبأ بهذا منذ ما يزيد على الألف وأربعة عام

have you ever been to Makkah?? the Kaaba is in the bottom of a valley, there is no way Kaaba would be seen from anywhere on Makkah even if Kaaba should be the only standing structure on the face of Makkah.
and even a one storey building just outside the Grand Mosque is higher then the Kaaba, because Kaaba is in a valley.

I have been to Makkah. I fail to see how something in a valley could not be seen from surrounding areas. I liked one of the comments that said to build gardens around with lots of shade and water. I ask you if you know what these two evil looking ugly towers mean to occultic societies who are hoping in their dumb brains to "channel Allah's powers" through this trashy bohemian occultic evil --New Yorkan-- design type abomination. If the house of Saud is an "Islamic family" then why don't they enforce Allah's law in this regard? At least why not poll Moslems all around the world if they don't want Allah? Why do they act like they own that place? They don't! This will call for a revolution. They have no authority whatsoever to tamper with this Holy Place like this. I think they are asking for it...

Who is building this pile of trash, I ask? Do you know the Islamic rule about building in Holy Makkah before you question my opinion? I wonder why Arabia is all of a sudden attacked by a slew of ugly high rise or sky scraper buildings? The desert is vast yet those characterless IDless identityless money loaded idiots--for Arabs always--opted to follow the steps of the Western World! People in New York for example had to go vertically when building because simply there is no space to go horizontally in New York! These idiots have this vast desert land yet they went vertically. This is simply because it is not their own decision. But I wonder who's is it? Perhaps when we compare the design of these ugly boxes to others in other places in the world, we'll soon find the answer...

brother, there is no "Islamic Rule" on building in Makkah. any building that can be built in any Muslim city can be built in Makkah. there is no separate rule for that. if there is please provide proof.

Most buildings around Al-Haram are taller than the Ka'ba. The structure that was built around the Ka'ba to accommodate worshipers is taller than the Ka'ba (The current image of the Haram). The minarets that surround it are even taller.

I also don't know of any such rule.
