I will not waste my time anymore for this matter. I will go on and continue the discussion of the project and its progress but please if you hate Saudi Arabia, show it some where else but not here.

Right ... so that means the podium of all the buildings is a mall. Thanks for confirming.

Also of interest was the museum you mentioned. Would love to hear what the focus of it will be - and I hope it is something more specific than 'Islam'. Would love to see something of the history of the Kaaba itself, starting at Abrahim / Ibrahim. The various cycles it has gone through - the slow change from its first days to the idol worshiping pre-Islamic era, the removal of the idols against the outcry by the localsand the various groups that had protected it over the centuries, the evolution of the city around it, and of course the modern era also.

Dream and everybody,
Just ignore Wali. He'll eventually shut up when nobody responds to him!
trolls love arguments and we've been giving it to him...

Not all levels of the podium are mall but you can say most of them in case if they kept insisting to cancel the car parking.

About the museum, Sure it is a museum for the development of MAkkah and the holy mosque with models of the holy mosque and even the prophet's mosque (Salla Allahu Alayhe Wa-Sallam) to show how the capacity got increased since holy mosque's capacity was thousands but now millions.

It will show the great work which has been done there and the billions which have been spent to develope the holy mosque and demolish the old buildings to extend the holy mosque to allow me, you and many other muslims to go for Hajj and Umrah.

MAy Allah bless anyone helped to do such job even if it was just an intention to help

each floor is almost 5.5 meter height and don't forget that they are 12 floors without Basement 3, Basement 2, Basement 1, Ground Floor and roof which means that total number of floors is 17 Floors.

Update:

Height of the wings towers (Sarah & Al-Maqam) of the project has been increased to be higher than the other 4 towers except the hotel which means that roof of the wings will be higher than roof of other 4 towers but ZamZam tower and Hajer tower will look higher cause of the tents which are almost 15 Meter height but as concrete work, Wings will be higher Inshallah (God Willing),

no no, as I said it will be lower than zamzam tower and Hajer (as concrete work) and lower than them when tents are installed which means that height will be almost 250 M inshallah (God willing).

Almost 10 meter has been increased not more.

I said most people, not all.

There's ethnic awareness, but almost everyone I know is American first, other shit second.

This is very nice! I'm glad they have incorporated some cultural heritage. The dhow has been integral to life along the coasts of these areas, and along the Eastern coast of Africa all the way to Zanzibar and beyond.

This photo is a bit concerning in that we are only half way through construction and it is already extremely hard to even find the Kaaba complex. It is there in this picture on the bottom right, but hardly worth a mention in terms of the composition of the picture.

Yes it is 240M height. Floors number is 17 (Podium) + 31 (Typical) + Roof = 49

Thanks Saudi_Guy for the update.

By the way front of the ship is in one floor and its back is in another floor and the total cost of the ship is 260,000$
