As far I know, still no any proposal for development of this area. It is very bad area and I believe that it should be demolished completely and re-developed.

One of the picture shows that Rawabi abraj al-bait will be connected to abraj al-bait by 2 bridges but I do not think that this is applicable since design and construction of the two towers (Zamzam) and (Hajer) is almost completed.

+ The main two towers of rawabi project will be hidden by abraj al-bait project and that is why they made small model of abraj al bait not big one (Look at the small white model infront of rawabi project).

Thank you Imre.

You know Saudi_Guy, Abraj Al-Bait was one of best projects in world really and I used to hope to see Makkah as one of best cities in the world and one of most organised but after seeing the photo of rawabi abraj al-bait, I lost the hope.

It looks Random, Ugly, not organised and does not look as part of abraj al-bait at all. Jabal umar is 100 times better. Bye Bye Abraj Al-Bait :-(

I am disappointed and thinking of not updating this project anymore lol or at least we create new topic for rawabi since rawabi is completely different than Abraj Al-Bait. It is a shame.

I actually don't think that the design is that important

The actual street scenes is what really bothers me, dirty roads, beggars, attitudes and behavior, ... etc.
