It is the largest construction project in world so what are you expecting?

About the area, the surrounded area will be demolished and new projects/buildings will be built inshallah (god willing) such as Jabal Umar (consists of over than 10 highrise buildings) and rawabi project which consists of 17 highrise buildings, each one is at least 200 meter height behind this project.

The tower looks more important than the mosque

The mosque has to be the central and not the tower

Not sure but the new projects would have a prayer ground attached with the mosque I think.

I can't possibly imagine how this building complex looks like when it's built. First of all, the hight is insane and when it's combined to the massiveness of this project... wow. That's so big that no matter where u are, u'll always see this. Not sure if it's too dominating, but it's really something.
