Can't stand the inpatient behavior of ppl in this thread. It took 2/3 days before the thread title was changed. What is the big deal?

I concur with Ni3lS that the drama was a bit over the top, but nothing unforgivable, overenthusiasm is human nature.

It also was never changed from 595m to 591m when the height change was announced. 2-3 days is a long time on the Internet, anyway

I believe this thread should be "sticky" as burj dubai!!! why? because it is unique.

Why burj dubai thread is sticky? because it is the world's tallest building.

Why abraj al bait should be sticky? because:

1- it has the biggest clock in the world.
2- it is the largest building in the world.
3- it is the second tallest building in the world.

I believe it is unique also and one more thing. it will be completed in few months so it deserves to be checked regulary. Guys, we will not see such clock or biggesr one before 10 years at least. Our world is not building such clock every few years. IT IS UNIQUE

Just a point of view!! hope you all agree with it.

From my point of view it's also one of the ugliest supertalls ever and that is why it should not be sticky.

If we made a sticky for every little record that a building might break there'd be a whole page full of stickies.

Shanghai Tower - Highest observation deck
Sky Tree - Tallest tower
Infinity Tower - Tallest twisting tower
Pentominium - Tallest residential
Canton Tower - Tallest hyperbolic structure
Dubai Pearl - Tallest cluster connected at the top
...

Wonderful building. I like it even more now that they put alot more detail to the clock and because of that it doesn't look so out of place. I also get a cultural vibe from it, 10/10

From the side and back, by Diana Spencer. They are building now the circular shape above the clock.

So the side and back clocks still need a lot of work to do.
But meanwhile the crown is beginning to take shape, too. Beams have been added up to where the prayer room will be (= about 490 m) , I guess. Soon Buj Khalifa will be the only taller building.
