I am really happy and proud that you all like this project now.

I remember when I joined this thread and updated the details of this project about the new heights, no one believed me and asked for proves then I updated this thread and posted first picture for the clock, most comments here were YUK. out of the scale !!!!!!!!!!!

Now after posting the details of the clock and the new height, you all are happy and like it now even without asking for proves for the new height.

first of all, thanks for the trust and secondly I am really proud to be the source for the details of this great project. thanks guys

I'm sorry if this has already been brought up, but I need to ask: What material will the spire and crescent at the top be made of? Will it be coated in gold? Is any gold used at all? At the very least I hope it's an incredibly shiny material so that the building stands out even more from its surroundings

of course, the clock looks marvellous here. also, Abraj Al-Bait isn't a tower you see every day, it's special (massive!) from the bottom to the top. it couldn't stand anywhere but mecca. so, yes peace.
