I disagree it looks exactly like something that would be built in Las Vegas if the airport wasn't so damn close to the Strip The front looks just like the Venetian imo.

The big tower is the exact same height as the proposed Crown Las Vegas and the smaller towers are not that much taller than the 750ft Fontainebleau which is currently under construction.

Caesars Palace sits on approx 85 acres of land while MGM Grand sits on 116 acres so there is plenty of space in las vegas to build something this big and bigger.

To get this thread back on track, is the tallest tower in the center actually under construction, or have they only started on the outside towers?

Holy ugly! Completely inappropriate building. No consideration or respect for context. Massing is ridiculous! Proportions are out to lunch. I think the architect got too much sun.

Hey thanks Saudi-Guy for the update man!! I have no problem with the quality off the pictures dude because it is enough to see the progress and at least you took the effort off making them

Cheers

This thread has gone horribly off-topic. This is not the place for a religious discussion. We're here to talk about this project and only this project.

Thanks for the pictures Saudi Guy. Although I'm more interested in the hotel tower. I think the activity on top of the completed tower is putting those tents that Dream was talking about...

that tall building in the pic is not the main tower . the main tower just started to rise, so it is still very small and definitely not 579m tall

1-this project's profits it's going to spend on the holy mosque developments.
2-They are doing this developments "I mean the whole developments in Mecca (there is around 7 Mega urban developments in Mecca around the holy mosgue)" just to help and provide some nice,clean,organized places for the people..and to make the most important site "for the Muslims" comfortable. so,they must reflect the country situation (economically,traditionally,modernity and of course financially .
basically,they will not do a small or old things-while they're having so much money- and they are aiming to make Mecca one of the most beautiful and well organized cities in the world..

I quite like the building actually. But

1 - the top of the tallest tower is not that good

2 - its one building, but it looks like a complete skyline in itself

3 - it should NOT be so close to the holy site.
