I did check the new ones- it's just funny that there are still dozens of those buildings just behind Abraj Al-Bait but yet, instead of demolishing them and building this skyscraper there- the historical building was demolished and those buildings still stand, according to the newest GE picture anyway (which is 2 months old).

FYI: The buildings you are talking about are either demolished or about to be demolished. They couldn't put it at that the place because its BOOKED for the project I like to call phase 2 of Abraj-al-Bait, "Rawabi Abraj-al-Bait"
