The *problem* with that clock is that it's descaling the building. Whats the size of the clock? 50m?

How many stories will it have?

Anyone else feel like this complex would fit perfect in Vegas?

It's coming along quite nicely. I really hope someone realizes how ******* ridiculous that clock will look on top of this building and take it out of the picture before it's too late. Plus aren't there announcements on loud speakers all over town announcing the call to prayer time?




Anyway I love this version.

Why are you getting so upset about the clock?The building(which the locals don't have a problem with)was designed more with functionality in mind than worlds most beautiful sublime creation af all the ages.

A very attractive and impressive building. The traditional Arabic design elements and ornaments lend an elegant touch. Yes, it does have a "Las Vegas" look - but in a positive way ... the project is luxurious and sumptuous like the best of the Vegas hotels.

It's too bad that 85% of the world's population of 6.6 Billion people are not allowed to visit this city or view these buildings. Pity.

It's easy to get upset about the clock because it ruins the building. If you took a perfectly good building like the Sears Tower, Burj Dubai or Shanghai WFC and permanently painted it with a Pepsi Logo, Gay pride flag or a Nike swoosh I think it would look ridiculous. This clock looks ridiculous in my opinion. Maybe I should refrain from talking about the clock any further just as I have refrained from posting anything about the Freedom Tower in the Freedom Tower WTC1 thread since I don't like it.


Anyway, thanks for posting the pictures Saudi guy. I need to find a way to visit Mecca since I'm not a religious person at all.
