Yes, that is understandable. I primarily just wondered if anyone knows when they project completion of the crown.

Considering the extreme complexity of the entire design and the intricate detailing of the facade, I wouldn't call this structure boring, ugly, or disgusting.

Maybe a bit overbearing the way it towers over the mosque. It does make the mosque look kind of puny now. I just hope they don't completely surround the mosque with other really tall towers.

Are you sure about that? It doesn't look like there's going to be a clock on the back side so I was thinking there would just be three but maybe I'm wrong.
