lol if you need a source from me, this means you need a source that the clock has been added to the design then the height got increased from 485 to 520 then 570 then 595 then 591 (reduced) then 601

I was the source for all of these infos if you check the old posts two years ago

If it keeps increasing like this, it could beat Shanghai Tower and Tokyo Sky Tree.
But I think the top part above the clock would like out of proportion, not in harmony with the lower part anymore.

Eh its ok to say you don't like it as long as it isn't abusive or obnoxious. That being said I think it is tacky. I am sure after awhile it will be ok just like the Eiffel Tower's situation.

I just think right now the juxtaposition is so striking. The desert next to this massive development as well as the mosque next to soulless imitation just really stands out.

opinion is something and trolling is something else.
what do you call it when someone post a picture of a Burqa wearing Mini mouse in a thread where it is supposed to be about a building?

Fashioned to be a hand?

Question for some of those more familiar with the design: Was this complex of buildings purposefully designed to resemble a hand?
