I can't wait to see more progress up top. The amount of detail on the exterior is impressive. They definetly didn't cut any corners.

There is a paper model being made of this building. The makers are Dapperheid Tower and Lions_215. They only have the hotel tower done at the momment. Lions_215 spent more than 2 hours working on a diagram of the hotel tower on MS Paint. Here's what they have so far:

It's actually not a Spire but a Crescent. I think it's going to take a lot of time to build it way up there.

I really like the building itself, but the scaling is so bizarre. Mecca is a pretty flat city (in terms of structures), and the Abraj Al Bait sticks out so blatantly. I guess this was the intention, but it seems kind of awkward in a city like this.

And why did they choose to demolish so many historical buildings? It's too bad

People say the same thing about the construction in China. The fact is is that you can't keep all of the old if you want to build new. When people complain about construction in Beijing, it is simple to say to them "atleast they didn't bulldoze the whole city".

Only old building in Mecca is Kaaba and that's a shame. What would many cities give in return just to have buildings made by architect like it was ottoman mimar Sinan, but that is in dust now. And i don't want even to speak about sahaba period

History killers
