I've been requesting updates since November with no results. I don't know how their construction worker recruiting season went in December.

Is it actually possible to build something that massive? The lower floors would have to be very very strong, so having big open spaces like the mall there...

And what about the clock? What material would the hands and the bearings be? The minute hand must be 20 metres long! I don't believe a clock that size is possible until I see it with my own eyes. (Well, they don't allow me to see it with my own eyes anyway. Bastards.)

Are they sure they know what they are doing?

Is it actually possible for a 300 000 kg Boeing 747 to fly 10km above ground?

Yes it is. I have seen it done.

Buildings and clocks like this Mecca monster I have not seen. Nobody has.
