Just a suggestion - can we stop the spam on this thread and limit discussion to architecture and construction? Numerous buildings all around the world get clouds / fog around them - no need to clog up the thread with such irrelavant posts.

looks like big ben on steroids, i think that tower with the clock is just way too tall compared to the shorter buildings in this whole building.

SPAM? I share latest updates as much as my can, and this one was just a message for anyone who is currently near the tower and has a camera. Next time, MIND YOUR OWN BUSINESS

I couldn't find any reference or source. However, I think it would be added to the spire below the balls.

The clock effects at midnight are pretty spectacular! Almost as if it is speaking to all the Meccans! Here's a video:

What is with that video? Totally not related.

Anyway, I have to say it is a pretty impressive structure. I wish it was a little further away but it has been built. The spire is incomplete so I guess they decide to take the opportunity to add 4m to make it higher.

i think it was because one of the balls "under the crescent" was too low that it was taking space from the viewing dock "which is under the crescent" so they lifited it up higher. it still needs official conforming but i trust DreaM1981 he is always ahead of news

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?
I clicked the little triangle with an exclamation point in it. Then I typed the words "off-topic and offensive, will cause fighting" so the mods could evaluate it.

BUT, if someone has a negative opinion about the building, I just read it and move on. For example, in the Tokyo Sky Tree thread someone said it looked like a giant oil drilling platform! Maybe it does to them, but not one person responded with 'it does not' or 'stop trolling'. They just moved on, just like anyone here should when this building is called vegasy or tacky.

The only thing that does works is NOT FEEDING THE TROLL. Seems people are just incapable of that, though.
