Important question, how many piligrims could this project support once completed ?? (including Rawabi Abraj) I think it would play a major role during peek times of Ramadan & Hajj.

Oh and:

CHANGE THE TITLE TO:

MECCA | Abraj Al-Bait Endowment | 601m | 1972ft | 95 fl | U/C !!!!!!

So if you guys want a thread title to be changed, there is a special thread for that. First go there before getting all excited like a couple of kids and use your big fat red font okay? A little bit of patience would be nice too, what is the big deal?
