Seriously though, albeit a tad Stalinist-looking, I love this project's design, it's something different from all the slick glass towers built everywhere else. Mecca is a unique city, it deserves to have unique towers.

i like the scrapers surrounding the clock tower, remind of the old skyscrapers before glass and steel era, but the clock tower just lacks taste and style in every possible way.

Jesus Christ. I take a look into this thread after like 2 months not visiting and the first thing I see is ppl bashing eachother. Honestly I did not expect anything different. Yes, the forums are being ****ed by loads of spammers lately. Everyone just has to deal with it. The post was deleted and this way it looked like the post was a reply to Gulfarabia's post. This is why you SHOULDN'T be replying to spammers or trolls because it's not gonna help. It will only derail threads. Keep it on topic!

He must be one of those spanish descendents in Saudi Arabia.....I think it's just him and his family holding that title in the country.
