New Look for Mecca: Gargantuan and Gaudy
By NICOLAI OUROUSSOFF
Published: December 29, 2010

.....Like the luxury boxes that encircle most sports stadiums, the apartments will allow the wealthy to peer directly down at the main event from the comfort of their suites without having to mix with the ordinary rabble below.....

“We don’t want to bring New York to Mecca,” Mr. Angawi said. “The hajj was always supposed to be a time when everyone is the same. There are no classes, no nationalities. It is the one place where we find balance. You are supposed to leave worldly things behind you.”

The government, however, seems unmoved by such sentiments. When I mentioned Mr. Angawi’s observations at the end of a long conversation with Prince Sultan, the minister of tourism and antiquities, he simply frowned. “When I am in Mecca and go around the kaaba, I don’t look up.”

MECCA, Saudi Arabia — Flash flooding killed a man and three children in the Mecca region of Saudi Arabia on Thursday, as waste-high water snarled traffic in the nearby Red Sea port of Jeddah, where 123 people died in flooding last year.
The governor of Mecca, Prince Khaled al-Faisal, reported the deaths and added that another 200 people had been rescued from flood waters, many by helicopter.....

When I look at that last picture it makes me really appreciate the "busyness" of the lines and details on the skyscraper. It really helps it fit in much better with the building in the foreground. If I were to imagine the new building thats going in to the left there, for instance, as a more simple, glass clad, structure,,, there is a good possibility that it might begin to debase and cheapen the foreground context and religious experience of the people visiting the site.

Lecom
Jan 14, 2011, 7:30 PM
I just wish the color of the shaft was more golden or brown to match the top, or white/limestone to match the facade of the mosque. The pinkish cladding in the mid-section clashes with the expensiveness and rich detailing of the rest of the project, and looks more like something you'd expect to see on a mid-rate condo development in Florida.

I did a quick calc, assuming the top floor is at about 500 m (precision isn't super important), and distance visible along the ground works about 80 km. Of course, the usual haze in the atmosphere probably only supports distances up to a few dozen kilometers, so...No, probably can't see it.

With all due respect... The next time this architect designs a 2000 foot skyscraper (and hopefully there won't be one) maybe they should try to make it less hideously ugly... and some other buildings on Meccas skyline would not hurt either.

The building will be iconic - i think they should increase the height to 611.7 meters 2007 Feet! I cant see why approaching shy of 2000ft that you dont go a few feet higher and truly become a building in the 2000 feet club!

It's already in the 600 m club, and considering that only the US still uses the Imperial system, the meter milestone is much more important.

Still, it would've been nice if they could push it just a little higher to get it up to 2000 ft. Knowing how many non-western countries build tall to show off the US (this is one of the reasons for highrise construction abroad, perhaps a very very small one), pushing the tower over 2000 ft would be a deal breaker as no building in the US is even allowed to go over 2000 ft.

Some people in this thread think this building is ugly - while i am not a big fan (just yet) i think it will grow on people liek the World Trade Centre did and the Sear Tower as well. Time will tell! I hope when they reach the 605 meter mark - they push it a bit further - a lightly taller spire will make it stand out even more and plus complement the size of the building. If EMAAR did not push the Burj Khalifa we would not be enjoying its half mile status!

and the cresent will go on anytime now i wonder if they will lift it up by helicopter like they did with parts of the top on Burj khalifah.

would be awsome if they could do it at the same day of the month as the real moon is it at its cresent state. would really bring alot of symbolism to the topping out of the building

Feb 8, 2011, 6:52 PM
since the crusent moon's symbol came from the ottoman empire and was later stuck as a symbol to muslims, i don''t think that adding that crusent will be so important that they will do as you wondered. islam is too pure for it to have symbolism, specially in the arabian penninsulla

but i guess it will be done via helicopter

i come from Norway where we hawe mountains valleys and deep fjords everywhere and we dont hawe nearly as many transmission masts grouped up anywhere like it is around Makkah. We hawe alot of them also yes but mostly just one close to each city.

so it must be the valleys in combination with the huge amount of brocasting and huge amount of people that cause it to be so many grouped up in Makkah

The Mosque next to the building is and will always be the central focal point for Muslims - i can understand why people of other faiths will see the building as the centre peace, however I think the building will bring some benefits like

*Tall buildings will naturally attract wind flow around the building - so it could encourage fresh winds and lower the temperature for pilgrims
*Also provide valuable shade for pilgrims
*A Beacon for anyone travelling to Mecca knowing which direction the Qibla is - by using the building as a reference point
*Aesthetical landmark - bringing the surrounding areas up to modern standards
*Make life easier for pilgrims by not having too far to travel - although i suspect it will be well off pilgrims

I am sure that when other buildings around the Harram area are demolished and bought up[ to modern standards - the city will be state of the art for pilgrims and residents

Mecca looks amazing now – it will look more amazing in the next 10-15 years!
I hope they increase the height to over 610 meters as the building will be in the 2000ft club where only a few buildings currently built and under construction are in that club

The reason for the great count of radio towers near Mecca may be that each company often built its own tower or even for each program its own tower. In most parts of Europe it is common that one tower must be used for all programmes.
However, there are sites with multiple masts. Most of them are or were used also for shortwave, mediumwave and longwave transmission. Towers and masts for this kind of transmission are often the antenna itsself and have high voltage against ground when transmission takes place.
Installing antennas for other radio services on this objects is possible, but requires a special device in form of resonant circuits, in whose coils a cable runs, to bring the signals from ground to high voltage potential.
Such device is expensive and maintenance on the mast requires either switching off the LW, MW or SW-transmitter or access via an insulated platform.
So it is often prefered in such cases to build two towers: one for longer waves and one for UHF and VHF.
Directional antennas for longwave and mediumwave require nearly always two or more masts. For shortwave dipoles spun between two or more towers are used.

Hoever all of the towers on the hills around Mecca seem to be used exclusively for UHF-/VHF-transmission. Abraj Al-Bait can perform the job of several of them perhaps.

(Roukaya19: The last clock still missing!)

it might be that it is easier to finish the top while still keeping that side open as it is Instead of finsihing it. In that way they can use it for storage and stuff while fisnihing the spire and also take metal and other thing that they need for the spire and clock in through the openings.

I think some day in the future the whole of Mecca mosque will be surrounded by giant buildings like this, in varying styles, to accommodate the millions more pilgrims projected as air travel gets cheaper and easier round the world.

As it is now though, on it's own, it's very, very impressive, one of the new wonders of the world imo, and by far the world's largest building, multiple times over:

Abraj Al Bait Towers

The Abraj Al-Bait Towers also known as the "Makkah Royal Clock Hotel Tower" is a complex under construction in Makkah, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. The building holds and will prevail several world records in the construction world, preferably: the tallest hotel in the world, constructed with the tallest clock tower in the world and displaying the world's largest clock faces,[1] the world's largest building floor area, and will become the second tallest building in the world upon completion in 2011 (Dubai's Burj Khalifa being the holder). The building complex is meters away from the world's largest mosque and Islam's most sacred site, the Masjid al Haram.

Upon completion, the tallest tower in the complex would stand as the tallest building in Saudi Arabia, and the tallest and largest hotel in the world, with a planned height of 610 metres (2,000 feet). It is recently the second tallest building under construction. Upon completion, the structure would have the largest floor area of any structure in the world with 1,500,000 m2 (16,150,000 sq ft) of floorspace.

This is the same as Terminal 3 at Dubai International Airport, in the United Arab Emirates which is also under construction. It will also surpass the Emirates Park Towers in Dubai as the world's tallest hotel.

The entire project is estimated to be completed in the autumn of 2011.

600 construction workers strike in Makkah

MAKKAH: Police dispersed Sunday morning more than 600 striking workers belonging to a major construction company in Makkah’s central area.

The workers of the King Abdul Aziz Endowment Project and the Grand Mosque’s northern courtyard expansion project were protesting nonpayment of their salaries and other legitimate grievances.

Maj. Abdul Mohsen Al-Mayman, spokesman of Makkah police, said the workers peacefully assembled in the Grand Mosque’s courtyard to press their demands and were not causing any disturbances.

Al-Mayman added that sufficient numbers of troops were sent to the location as a precautionary measure.

Police also sent representatives of the contracting company and workers to the Labor Office to settle their disputes.

Labor strike continues for second day in Makkah


By BADEA ABU AL-NAJA | ARAB NEWS

Published: Feb 22, 2011 00:48 Updated: Feb 22, 2011 00:48

MAKKAH: Over 600 construction workers employed by a major construction company on a project close to the Grand Mosque in Makkah continued their strike for a second successive day on Monday.

The men, working on the King Abdul Aziz Endowment Project and the Grand Mosque’s northern courtyard expansion project, have gone on strike after not being paid their salaries for two months. They are also demanding better work conditions.

Eyewitnesses said the workers began gathering close to the King Abdul Aziz Endowment Project at around 7 a.m. on Monday. They added that the number of workers was larger than those who gathered to strike on Sunday.

The workers also shouted slogans demanding unpaid salaries. Police officers arrived at the scene and contained the workers in an area to allow space for pedestrians and pilgrims to walk. The huge gathering and police presence also created some confusion among pilgrims and visitors to the Grand Mosque.

A number of workers said they were protesting after not receiving their salaries for two months, adding that they had also not been paid overtime. They also called for their salaries to be increased and better accommodation.

One of the men, who asked for his name not to be published, said the workers met their employers and told them of their demands. The employers promised to resolve the matter and said that each worker would be paid an additional SR200 until the problem is solved.

Maj. Abdul Mohsen Al-Mayman, spokesman for Makkah police, said police officers were at the location to contain the strike and separate the workers from members of the public and pilgrims.

He added that police listened to the workers’ demands and that the matter has been brought to the attention of the Labor Office.

Could someone "In the Know" explain where all the 16 million square feet is housed? I find it hard to believe that all that square footage is just in the building with the clock... It must take the other buildings into consideration as well.

Biff
Feb 22, 2011, 5:04 PM
The complex is 16 million sq ft. I believe it is all one building via the common podium.

It is quite impressive. The gigantic size of the clock face definitely diminishes the appearance of how tall the tower actually is.


.......oh sorry, I'm not actually "in the know", just been following along. Maybe someone else should verify this. :)

I think people (well, I did anyway) underestimated the scale of this building, both with respect to its size and its detail. As others have already mentioned, the clock faces on their own are a new wonder of the world in my opinion.

I would love this "thing" if not for that stupid clock . I understand why it's there , I understand that it is in fact a rather beautiful clock , and I understand that it does indeed give the building a unique look . We can't really argue those points but the sum of its parts makes this thing a lot less than it should be .

Maybe in a hundred years or whatever , people will automatically say "Mecca" the same way they see Big Ben and say "London". We can only hope so anyway .

It reminds me a bit of some of these Las Vegas casinos. It's a tough one to love, no doubt, but its massive size nevertheless inspires respect. In one word, stunning.

That's a beautiful picture, this massive thing will definitely become a symbol. Although it does look like an oversized Big-Ben. :haha:

Oh my God, those photos from that Ahmad guy are simply incredible. I would absolutely love to go to Mecca and be able to photograph the city.
