Were you expecting "taste"? If they'd had some of that, this thing would never have got off the drawing board.

Are there any pictures of the balls and crescent being built, like the pieces of the clock before they were installed?

In my personal opinion this is a great looking tower, but it seems that the average opinion isn't so positive.

But like you say, I think this thing will get more appreciated in time, like for example the Eiffel tower, in the beginning hated by the most, but after some years the icon of France or maybe the whole of Europe. Something likewise will happen with the Abraj aswell I predict.

SOME would say "only if they build something taller and covered with more green lights and gold"

I say, it is growing on me.

Wow, progress seems to be much slower- I haven't visited this thread in weeks and I expected it to be externally complete by now...

Is there a reason for this or am I just being impatient ?
