You better hope it does end up being deleted, because it does not reflect on you in the most flattering light.

So the staff hates this project because it took two days to update the title? And you have the nerve to accuse anyone of being childish??

GulfArabia, why do you think that it would take them another 1 1/2 years to complete the rest of the spire at the current pace? They have already started with the top pinnacle and are close to completing the clock already. Considering it's only July I find it very realistic that the top will be done by December.

You can actually see the clock's lights from Mecca's highway in Jeddah.
Don't know if you can see it at day though..

These are old ideas (2005) about the museum and luner center above the clock. They must have been changed since the design of biulding itself has changed more than two times.
