i also would call it a 4 storey building, with bridges to get into it.
i guess it is called Jamarat Bridge because before this new building there actually was a bridge that was used for many years, just one level, going up from one side going down from the other. they didn't want to change the name i guess.

I'd call it the Jamarat COMPLEX. It's commonly known just as 'Jamarat'.
