Thanks for the informative post, Roukaya. It's tricky to put into perspective just how large this clock is but your post is very helpful!
you're welcome : )

Looking at the religious side of the building, I don't know how this building will qualify for a skyscraper to be reckon with in Skyscrapers world. I might be wrong in my view, I don't just find it fascinating to place it into the group of famous buildings on this forum.

Nevertheless, there is much efforts put into some of the features like the gigantic clocks and the canopies atop. I would commend the efforts as it is quite challenging to place those clocks up there. Does anybody know the precision and the designer of the clock?

There was also a Malaysian team to build the clock. They were 16 Malaysian workers. Great men!

Price depend on the suite..

And its not unattractive or totally random, it fits in very well with the architecture in the area, and will be a stunning landmark when complete.
