Uh dude, keep in mind that there's still the interior work that needs to be done XD. That could take just as long considering the huge amount of floor space this behemoth has.

I hate this monstrosity and find it dark and unholy, from the day I saw it underconstruction in Mecca, many other muslims feel the same about it and hate it too, literally cursing Saudi's for building it in the holy city.

Its an affront to Islamic teachings.
