This building is not a supertall, it's a supermassive. What a monster!! However, the design is good but the clocktower..

Thank you Fahed for posting the Pictures.

First one has been taken from Ibrahim Al-Khalil and second has been taken between Al-Safa Palace and The begining of Mas'a.

Now The three towers are completed 100% as construction work anyway.

I don't find anything tasteless on this building, actually, I really like this building, with its heavy islamic influence and style.

This is really a massive building!
I can't imagine how many janitors they must have, or how long it takes to visit every single room.

I wouldn't be surprised if the Saudi's use the Hajj for recruiting. They have a terrible record for foreign worker / slave abuse!

As you see, keeping this thing clean will not be an issue for them.

Indeed - I just wish it wasn't so tall - as in like over 250m.
