I had my doubts before because of the religious aspect of this development, but WOW!

This is just amazing, I think we can expect alot more from Saudi Arabia in the upcoming years....

The only outstanding thing about this building is that is massive. It's one of the ugliest and megalomaniac things I've ever seen. Pretentious, kitsch, bad taste. are words that come out of my mouth when I see things like this.

I totally agree, until oil, then gold, other minerals, metal deposits, and the sun runs out, we still can expect a lot from Saudi!!
