The Hajj pilgrims do need ever more lodging accomodations. I see nothing wrong with what they're building there. I'm just wondering when they project that this building will be finished. Seems like construction on the crown of it is creeping along very slowly.

Usually CULWULLA provides the current height from time to time with a diagram of the project

The Crown is being done at a height that hasn't been reached on a construction project very many times before. And this crown is more complex than anything that's ever been built at this height.
So the time that it is taking is very understandable.
