I won't join the religious discussion... doesn't matter if the Kabaa is near or not, the architects didn't keep in mind the urban development of the surrounding area. Amateurs, fools or investor-slaves, I don't know...

I don't know why we have to repeat ourselves here.

As Saudi_Guy mentioned before, this is a part of the new plan to makkah which will be surrounded by many new projects and many skyscrapers 200M+ plus the new extention of the holy mosque.

It looks huge here just cause the new projects just got approval from the saudi gov. and the work will start this year or next year maximum inshallah (God willing).

Again, it is a part of a new plan/image to makkah.

OK, but why is there no rendering of the whole development? Didn't someone say 24 billion of investment... if that number is correct there should be enough money to make a good render and no Photoshop-SSC-stuff...
Or is there a rendering? Haven't seen one...

There are many renders for the old design but this new design (2007 design) is still new and here we started to see some new good renders as the one I just posted.

Actually, there is a render for each project but still I have not seen a render for all projects at once. as far I remember I have seen a render for a model of all new projects together in makkah but I do not remember where.

They are already building this building.

I find it a neccesaty to have these gigantic buildings in Mecca or else there isnt the capacaty to hold all off these people.

But from a personal point off view it is too dominate but sadly there isnt an other choise BUT to build them.

Cheers

I do not know why all are trying to compare this clock with big ben. any big clock should not be compared with big ben since big ben is not an expression to explain any big clock.

It is just the biggest clock right now and soon any big clock will be compared with "Makkah clock" not big ben inshallah (God willing).

Forget Big ben, the record will be brocken soon and this does not mean that someone is trying to make a new big ben. does dubai trying to make new sears tower or Paterons tower by building burj dubai? this is not logic for sure.

Makkah clock is new & big clock braking all old records and in holiest place of islam so, please let's stop the comparison between two different projects.

Lol, and what's the point in "breaking all records" for "the biggest clock" ?

And it sure looks like big ben stuffed in the middle of a Stalinist building or something ... :/

They're quite similar, even if the Makkah royal hotel is bigger and has not a cross on its top I think they can be compared to each other

Yeah, it's probably time to shut down the religious arguments here, otherwise we'll go around and around and around about being "religious enough".

This project definitely could use some neighbor projects.

I am not talking about the looking, I am talking about intention of many people here who want to prove one thing "Makkah clock is just a copy of big ben".

I disagree with this statement 100% since the clock is just a clock and It can not be different at all since all clocks look like each other.

Makkah clock is not a copy paste of big ben clock (This is the conclusion which I wanna say).

Now that Abraj Albait is taller than ever, I think Jabal Omar project should also follow and have one or two supertalls.
