Many don't like the location but we are here to discuss the construction work and updates not locations and even if someone wants to discuss it, we already did for many several times before. I think it is enough and let's concentrate on updates.

Nice to hear about the repeated height increase!
Are there any new official renderings? I hope they don't play around with the spire to make meters, but instead add more floors, so that Abraj Al Bait will finally not only look massive and huge, but also super-mega-tall, like such a high skyscraper should.

This clip rocks!
Reminds me a bit of my good ol' days as a teenager, when I was sneaking u/c-highrises prively at night (I stopped that when I realized how expensive an unwanted deployment of municipal security service might get for me... . Strangely, I never thought of trying to get a permission or a job there.)

First of all, it is in german cause the sub-contractor who is installing the tents is german company called S L RASH so maybe this video has been taken by one of the staff there.

Names of Towers:

Al Safa Tower (Called Tower A)

Al Marwa Tower (Called Tower B)

Hijra Tower (Called Tower C)

ZamZam Tower (Called Tower D)

Makkah Royal Hotel Tower (Called Tower H)

The Wings:

Sarah Tower (Called Tower K)

Maqam Tower (Called Tower F)

To know the names of towers on any render, please check my previous posts.

heights are known officially and there is a post about the height of each tower but sure the new update is only for hotel which is the main tower of the project. The new height as I said above is 595 M and it is official.

I don't like so much the project, I think it looks a bit anonymous

Well, the Bahnhofsturm stands only 66m tall... I'm talking about highrises, not essentially skyscrapers. The Black Forest nearby has some tall bridges, where I once climbed a 110m-crane. And also Frankfurt isn't too far from Freiburg!

Back to presence and to Mecca:
The towers are a bit too close to each other, I think, so it appears like one tower with large wings. Mostly only Abraj Al-Bait is known as a whole so far, and it's about time that all the single towers become generally known worldwide... they are worth it.
