Yes, and you can find several more examples in the Middle East and the Pacific Rim.

Shouldn't the construction status of this thread be changed to Com (Completed)?

Did they use local labour to build this? Did any workers die during construction?

You can see there is still facade work to be done in the above pictures, and there are still two cranes on the building.

this must be the most detailed tower of modern times. incredible. at the same time such detail as that on the arms of the clock could never hope to be appreciated in person but only in pictures. with the practical demands of an ever capitalizing middle east and a great nod to the importance of location they have in the religion of islam , the result could be interpreted negatively by many. i'd like to think this building is appreciated by the people who stand in its shadow, whether they can afford it or not, at the very least as a representation of their culture, religion and spirit, something a glass box could never provide them.

More money should be invested in white paint or something for the roads, or at least something else apart from the railings and road blocks.
