I think there will be such stations in most of the new major projects (Jabal Omar, Abraj Al-Bait, Shammiyah,,etc).

It will connect MAkkah with other cities and in same time as Riyadhi said, there will be many railway stations but as I have been told Abraj Al-bait railway station will be the one serving Ajyad area including Jabal Umar and it will not be underground inshallah (god willing).

By the way, is it me the only one who feels that administrators insist to ignore our request or not even reading this thread? We are talking about the wrong title of the thread for last week but no administrator listens or changed anything

If gothicform is an adminstrator here then why did not he change the wrong title? if he disagrees with location of this project, does it mean to ignore the thread and not adjusting the title to be (U/C) (PART 2) instead of (Proposed).

Please gothicform don't talk it personally but I really wonder why all of adminstrators are ignoring our requests !!

^i think approved would be more appropriate, the main tower the one which is 577m is not actually under construction just yet, the supporting towers are but there has been no evidence that the main tower is currently being built. This becomes all the more obvious when you realise that the latest render which represented a design change was released only a few weeks ago. For all we know there could be a further 2 or 3 design changes until the main structure actually gets underway, so for my money "proposed" or "approved" are more accurate than "under construction".

and for the record gothicform isnt "an" administrator or "a" moderator he is the BOSS its his website, so be careful what you say about him!

he is right.. the main tower is U/C and I already posted some photos here showing that main tower already started 3 months ago.

If gothicform is the owner of this site or normal user, I do not have to be careful since I did not insult/disrespect anyone but I disagreed with ignoring our requests to change the topic.

Owner of site, Adminstrator, moderator or member, I respect all and I will say my point of view freely since nothing to fear of it if I know respecting limits very well even if we disagree

There needs to be dedicated Mods and Admins for particular boards that we can report to...

I believe it is the good part of the project

The main purpose of this mixed-use project is to serve the pilgrimes as shopping mall, car parking, hotel, mosque and more..

Pilgrimes are millions so if this project is not massive enough then it is a waste of area.

To buy 1 m infront of the holy mosque, it costs almost 150,000$

Clean and beautiful design. I like the elevators to the left. Overall the inside looks peaceful.
