Not even that. You would have to be way higher to see it.

Correct. You have to be several miles up to see any real curvature.

People were extrapolating that you might even be able to see Mecca's Clock Tower if the day was clear and if your viewing could clear the mountain between the two cities if I recalled. Not sure if that was ever proven or disproven 100%. Might have to wait to see how high the platform is in the end.

What's this building for in the first place? Nobody wants to stay for long in the desert.. People work there for some time..Earn, save and then finally leave.. This building will be another piece of display in the middle of nowhere..

It is actually that - a ***** display of wealth and THEN a multifunction structure with a lot of future growth. Maybe one day they will finally start generating income out of it but I don't see that in the next decade.

Maybe they will just finish the exterior and make it look nice without ever being finished on the inside.
