Excuse my ignorance, but I just noticed that it will have only 76 floors. That seems like very few for a 1,950 foot building. Is that the floor count for the main tower? Or the other ones surrounding it?

see diagram-
12floors in podium
hotel-first section-33 floors, 2nd section-25floors
royal suites-8floors
mech levels-5 floors
exhibition/lunar levels-2
total-(85)
there is also 5 or so more observation levsls above this.
so in reality its about 90 actual levels to the base of the spire.

I'm thinking about taking pictures some time in the next month. What's the law on taking pictures in public nowadays? I remember a time when cops would stop you from taking pictures in public places.

Do I have to ask for permission?

Last time i have been in mecca, i took pictures inside the haram, nobody stopped me, I actually asked one of the security guards working in the Haram area, he told me just don't take pictures towards women, and he said take them from the top floor of the mosque...
