in the German Wiki it says this tower has 120 floors , that's difficult to believe. but seems that number is coming from CTBUH personally: http://skyscrapercenter.com/mecca/ma...k-tower-hotel/

I've been there!

They have a few basement floors (B1, B2, B3, Carpark etc) (M1, M2, M3 etc) mezzanine floors which may not have been included in the 95 floors.

But I can't say how many in total.

Wow, those workers fixing the crescent and that crane driver, wonder what their pay is. How did they set up that crane at that height on the match stick structure, with all the weight that's required to balance it, how did it get there?

Is the spherical platform around the kaba permanent? it looks very cheap and crude, the pieces forming the circle are not perfectly curved and have corners jutting out.

It's very interesting to see the changes of the whole area in the last 5 or 6 years.
